Not Sara

Wendy in Ammanford

Sara Gethin is a pen name – in real life I’m Wendy White.

I write for children under the name Wendy, and my first children’s book, Welsh Cakes and Custard, won the Tir na n-Og Award in 2014.

Although ‘Tir na n-Og’ sounds Irish, it’s actually a Welsh prize awarded annually to two children’s books in Wales. My book, Welsh Cakes and Custard, won the award for ‘Best English Language Children’s Book with a Welsh Dimension’.

I’ve written another two books for children – Three Cheers for Wales and St David’s Day is Cancelled! and details of my children’s books can be found at:

Sara’s debut novel for adults ‘Not Thomas’ – a story of child neglect, love and hope, written in the voice of a child – is published by Honno Press in paperback and as an e-book, and is available to buy direct from the publisher, from Amazon and from all good bookshops.
