Sam Carrington lives in Devon with her husband and three children. She worked for the NHS for 15 years, during which time she qualified as a nurse. Following the completion of a Psychology degree she went to work for the prison service as an Offending Behaviour Programme Facilitator. Her experiences within this field inspired her writing. She left the service to spend time with her family and to follow her dream of being a novelist. SAVING SOPHIE is her debut psychological thriller novel.
`Saving Sophie is a twisted rollercoaster of a debut . . . Sam Carrington is definitely one to watch out for' LISA HALL, author of BETWEEN YOU AND ME `I was hooked . . . I devoured this story in one sitting. From the moment 17-year-old Sophie arrived home drunk, with no recollection of the evening, and we discover another teenage girl has gone missing, my stomach rolled with anxiety . . . I was on the edge of my seat as a body was found, and when it becomes apparent that Sophie could be the next target I read through splayed fingers. Sam has a rare gift for writing . . . In this book the character development is as good as the writing and I found myself really rooting for Karen and the ending made me gasp.' LOUISE JENSEN, author of THE SISTER
