Book Release Day!


After all the editing, illustrating, formatting, pre-partying and planning, The Tramp is finally live on Amazon! Go check it out HERE.

And I’ve just received my first awesome review, by someone who isn’t family and thereby forced to give me a good review!

Sweet Moments Topped with Slightly Horrific Psychological Cherries – Truly Riveting!

Sarah Wathen brings a new novel to print with “The Tramp.” This book has all the old world feel of a ‘Heidi’ inspired mountain village while leaking the creep factor of ‘Silent Hill’ or a Dean Koontz masterpiece.
The prologue will snatch you up, but it is many chapter later before that starts to make sense – chapters that invest you in a small town life the likes of which you’ve never seen, though there are aspects that ring true for every community. There is the shop owner, the Pastor, the drunk mom, the misunderstood rascal, the gossips, the teens, the children and tourists – and then there’s Candy. Candy is a red headed teen with a past to cry on and a future that proves just as confusing as any young girls dream.
A silent thriller, this novel builds chapter upon chapter, offering sweet moments topped with slightly horrific psychological cherries like a doll’s head filled with maggots and a long haired woman that isn’t really there. There is a quiet horror in the normalcy of this build up, the slight touches that relay a sense of doom without overtly displaying anything. When an exchange student comes to town, it adds to the drama – a drama that is only enhanced when an old friend comes to stay.
The town of Shirley welcomes you.

Thank you, M!

And now, since it’s also my birthday, I’m gonna go celebrate!
