At age 8, Sally Wilson was peddling first attempts at poetry to classmates in exchange for candy from their lunch boxes. She’d discovered a love of words and wanted everyone to know about it. Looking back she admits it wasn’t so much her great writing prowess but just being taller than her peers and scaring them into parting with their chocolate which led to any "sales."
Fast forward twenty-five years and Sally, though still tall, hopes she’s no longer frightening people into reading her work. She’s enjoyed writing ever since she was a kid, choosing journalism as a career after studying English at university. In evolving from newspaper hack to running her own feature-writing business, Sally’s penned stories on a kaleidoscope of subject matters from the downright absurd to the very humbling.
A Scot, Sally moved with her husband and baby daughter from Edinburgh to Long Island, New York in February 2010. Accustomed to moving after travelling the world with her dad’s job as a child, she and her family are loving life in the USA.
Sally plays guitar and Scrabble, is terrible at baking despite her best efforts, pretends American Idol’s of no interest but watches every episode, and has a deep-rooted love of old time country music than is probably normal for a British person.
