Welcome to my Website

10th February

I’m absolutely loving being back in England and even more so being in Cornwall. As much as I loved my time living in the Caribbean there is something so special about this small, green island - even if it is rather rainy and muddy right now. It’s been a case of pulling on my boots and waterproofs and stomping the cliffs and footpaths for inspiration rather than lazing by the pool but I’m certainly feeling inspired and a lot fitter.


This year is certainly gearing up to be a very busy one. It’s my first year as a full time writer - something which I have wanted to do for a very long time. It’s a big leap of faith to step away from secure employment to do this but I know that at some point you have to be brave. I’m lucky to have the support of my partner as well as my family and friends. I also have a wonderful team at Notting Hill Press, a fantastic editor and the most talented cover artist imaginable - in between doing work for Waitrose and the Radio Times she fits me in and I am so thrilled she can. The covers for my books are something that we both put a great deal of time and effort into. If you have a favourite I’d love to know which one and why. I certainly do. You can email me at rsaberton@yahoo.com or leave a message via my Facebook Author page.


I have set myself quite a full schedule this year. At the moment I’m putting the final touches to the fourth instalment in the Polwenna Bay series: TREASURE OF THE HEART.I’m loving writing these books. Having a series is so much fun and it’s really challenging me as a writer. There’s a lot to think about with multiple narratives, wide cast of characters and a whole imaginary world to explore. One of the nicest things about Polwenna World is sharing it with my reader. I love hearing from you all and it makes all the hours tapping away at the keyboard worth while to know that people are enjoying my books. Thanks also to all of you who have been kind enough to leave reviews on my author areas at Amazon UK and COM. The reviews are like gold dust for readers and they really do make a difference.


I’m often asked when my books will be out in paperback. There is nothing nicer for an author than to see a tangible copy of their work. I will always remember the thrill of seeing KATY CARTER WANTS A HERO come off the printing press and into the book shops. Funny to think this was only six years ago because the publishing world has totally changed. Back in 2010 ebooks were in their infancy and it was all about the paper backs. Fast forward to 2016 and I probably sell ten times more ebooks than paperbacks. Yet I know there’s something special about having a paper copy. This year all my books with Notting Hill Press will be available in paper back. I have also sold rights to Audible too and there will be speaking books available. I’ll let you know when all this goes live but it shouldn’t be far away.  I’ve been busy approving the proofs and I’m thrilled with them.











The sequel to KATY CARTER WANTS A HERO will be published this summer. As yet I am totally stumped for a title. Something summery and adventurous would be good and similar to the original. All ideas are welcome and I’ll think up a great prize for whoever thinks of the winner. The third book in the ESCAPE series, ESCAPE TO THE SUN, is due to be published in the early autumn followed by the as yet untitled Christmas novel. Christmas in Cornwall springs to mind and I have a plot...


In between this I am trying to renovate the house, ride my horse and do some exercise - easier said than done when writing involves so much sitting. Oh! And keep this website up to date, of course.


So, welcome to my site! And please keep in touch.
