Half Life is a triplet of supernatural stories which journey to worlds that linger between life and death. Fear, disappointment and loneliness permeate these worlds, forcing each character to face up to the dark side of human existence. In the heart of the deep dark Scandinavian forests, an alluring supernatural creature drains Henry Scott of his life force. In danger of becoming a desperate ghost lost to the forest, he must ght to nd his way back home. Recently deceased at the age of thirty-six, Adelaide Anderson discovers that being a ghost is as disappointing as being alive. Angry and disillusioned, she takes extreme measures to live the life she deserves. Jimmy is the god of anxiety and depression. Frustrated at his low status, he steals e Scythe from his brother, Death. When he kills Rachel, it gives her a relief from the pain of living, but for Jimmy, facing Death is more than his life is worth. An original blend of horror, pathos and humour, these curious stories will cause disquiet, heartache and a thrilling sting of pleasure.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Half Life is quite something. I just loved Sarah's idea of what it means to be a ghost.' Tracy Chevalier, New York Times bestselling author 'Brilliant portrayal of a cruel disease.' Helena Frith Powell, international bestselling author 'Sarah writes beautifully and the sense of foreboding or unease is brilliantly conveyed. I've never read anything quite like it, although I'd suggest echoes of Mary Shelley or Edgar Allan Poe.' Clare Balding, award-winning broadcaster, journalist and author
