Not Sara

Wendy in Ammanford

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

I write for children under my real name of Wendy White, 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 from Wales, one in Welsh, one in English. My book, Welsh Cakes and Custard, won the award for ‘Best English Language Children’s Book with a Welsh Dimension’.

I’ve written another three books for children – Three Cheers for Wales, St David’s Day is Cancelled and Mamgu’s Campervan and the Knights in Shining Armour. 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.
