Formerly a French, English and history teacher, Sarah Martin met and became friends with Davis McCaughey while working as development manager at Ormond College. After his death in 2005, she began researching his life, completing a PhD, with the ultimate purpose of writing a biography.
Sarah began work on Davis McCaughey’s biography in 2005. Previously she had written a novel, based on her year in France in the early 1970s.
Since beginning the biography, she has written a number of short stories. She is currently engaged on writing a series of linked stories on family life with toddlers, drawing on her own experiences with her grandchildren.
