About the Author

Sarah is a self-confessed obsessive of Eighties culture, and a mine of useless trivia on the decade. With an uncanny knack of bumping into celebrities, the ability to recall in startling detail events from over three decades ago (although likely to forget what she ate for breakfast!), and a number of diaries kept during her childhood and teenage years, no one is better placed to bring you a true taste of the Eighties. Born and raised in The Garden of England, Sarah has lived in Kent all her life. Growing up surrounded by beautiful countryside, but miles from 'civilisation', saw her innate interest in music become a lifelong infatuation with radio and vinyl. Entrusted with her parents' record collection from a young age, she spent hours listening to an eclectic mix of songs from Jim Reeves to The Kinks, Elvis to Sam Cooke, Otis Redding to The Rolling Stones. The latter's "High Tide And Green Grass" album remains a firm favourite. At 10 years old, Sarah begun her own vinyl collection when she bought her first 7″ single in Woolworths, Adam & The Ants' "Stand & Deliver". Today, that now sizeable collection continues to grow with both new releases by 80's artists and old classics, found in charity shops or received as gifts from friends. Played whenever she feels like taking a break from the radio, her "daily default background music", Sarah believes her fascination with the Eighties has been compounded by years of exposure to its music, including gigs and retro festivals.
