‘Engrossing and compelling insight into rivalry and backstabbing at a TV station. I loved it’ – Kerry Fisher
Sarah Pinborough has written more than 20 novels across a variety of genres. Her international number one bestseller, Behind Her Eyes, was a word of mouth sensation, receiving quotes and endorsements from authors such as Stephen King, Neil Gaiman and Harlan Coben. It was one of the most talked about publications of last year, with the hashtag #WTFthatending reaching over 600 million of people on social media. The book was both a hardback and a paperback number 1 bestseller in the UK and has been optioned by Left Bank Pictures and Netflix. Sarah also writes for film and TV and her YA novel 13 Minutes is currently being developed by the team behind The O.C. for Netflix. Website / Twitter
