Sally St Clair

Sally was born in South East London, and went to school in Blackheath. Following a family move to Frinton-on-Sea she briefly attended Colchester School of Art. Sally has continued to draw and paint throughout her life.


'Sally's Tarts', established in 1978 was one of the very first wholefood organic bakeries in the UK, supplying local wholefood shops and events with organic cakes. Sally's red and white striped marquee became a fixture at festivals and fairs between 1979 and 1987. 

She has a degree in Biology and Education from the University of York and a post-graduate diploma in Biographical Counselling from Emerson College.

Now retired, Sally lives in the beautiful Alpujarras in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains in Southern Spain, as immortalised by Gerald Brenan in South From Granada, (1957). She likes it more than Virginia Woolf did.


Finally, there is time enough to devote to writing. A first novel, 'What Must be Broken' (working title), is in progress. Poetry  and short stories have been  published in magazines and anthologies, and  placed in competitions.
