She is a native of the Washington, DC area and has both her Bachelors and Masters Degrees in psychology. She spent several years working as a mental health therapist with poor and homeless populations with severe mental illnesses, working in a sex offender rehabilitation center, and teaching victim empathy classes in an adult detention center. All of these in depth work experiences in such intense environments have given her a plethora of experiences to draw from when writing crime dramas.

Writing has been her hobby since high school and she has been published several times from poetry to articles to short stories, and now novels. Her most recent article was published on Indie Writer's Guide. Her most recent poetry was published in Blue Ink Literary Magazine.

Sand & Clay was her first full length novel and will have a sequel coming out in 2015. Sand & Clay reached Amazon's Top 100 Hot Reads in October 2013. Her second book is called Tainted Bodies and is the first part of The Photographer Trilogy. Tainted Bodies came out on January 1st, 2014 with other parts of the trilogy to follow later in 2014. Tainted Bodies reached Amazon’s Bestseller Rank in Crime and Crime Thriller on April 4th, 2014 and stayed on those lists for over two weeks. She also has a large following on the popular social media site for book lovers, Goodreads.

Sarah Robinson's Facebook fan site quickly exploded when she created it in September 2013 and has now reached over 10,000 likes. She updates it personally and loves interacting with her fans through all her social media platforms. Several blogs have also highlighted Sarah's work including a one week blog tour in October 2013 highlighting her first novel, Sand & Clay, in which over 40 blogs participated in reviews, promos, cover reveals, interviews, and giveaways. This was followed by a second blog tour in February 2014 for her second book, Tainted Bodies, in which 65 blogs participated. Tainted Pictures is her third book and the second installment of The Photographer Trilogy.

Her writing often concentrates on the complexity of love and emotions and the struggles of finding your destined path through life as well as overcoming life's tragedies and misfortunes. She combines psychological complexities and human emotions to create very real characters experiencing life in a very real way. Her books focus on redemption and forgiveness and learning to build on what has been broken.

Much of her inspirations come from the amazing love she shares with her new husband, Justin Robinson, and the emotions around falling head over heels in love with your soul mate. She and her new husband are also big animal rescue enthusiasts and have 16 pets as well as volunteering with multiple animal shelters and rescues. Together, they own a zoo of rescues including 2 dogs, 3 cats, 4 kittens, 1 box turtle, 1 snapping turtle, 3 smaller aquatic turtles. Her celebrity idol is Ellen DeGeneres, she even named her adorable little certified service dog after her (a Shih Tzu-Bichon mix named Elly) and she never misses a show, thanks to the powers of DVR!


Kate Jackson knew that she had just entered a moral gray area as she hugged her purse against her and walked out of the police station onto the dingy streets of Washington, DC. The photograph was burning a hole in the bottom of her purse that seared against her like hot flames of guilt. She knew that she had just knowingly and willingly withheld evidence from Detective Liz Snow regarding the police investigation into her attack. In fact, maybe it wasn’t a moral gray area at all. Maybe it was a plain black and white case of wrong and right and Kate had picked wrong.

She stepped off the sidewalk and looked down the street both ways as she crossed the intersection, thinking about what had just transpired. It had been just two weeks since Kate had been attacked in her apartment on a late Sunday evening. She had just gotten home from a weekend getaway to the Delaware beaches with Derrick, her handsome boyfriend of six months. She and Derrick had finally defined their relationship and committed to exclusivity after six months of Derrick resisting any type of label.
