Sarah Ash is a British novelist. She began writing at a very young age, and at the age of twelve completed her first fantasy novel, which was called "The Miglas". She trained as a musician at New Hall, Cambridge, for four years and her interests in music and drama led her into becoming a schoolteacher. Each novel she writes has a "secret soundtrack". She also runs the library in a local primary school. Sarah Ash lives with her husband and two sons in Beckenham, Kent. Her sister Jessica Rydill is also a writer. Her writings are similar to those of Joanne Bertin and Robin Hobb.
