Sarah Lotz is a screenwriter and novelist who pens novels under the name S.L Grey with author Louis Greenberg; YA novels with her daughter, as Lily Herne; and is one third of pseudonymous author Helena S. Paige. Lauren Beukes calls her ‘a natural-born storyteller. Like the hand reaching up from the dark well, she’ll drag you into her thrall. You’ll come up gasping.’ Sarah lives in Cape Town with her family and other animals.
She is the author of the chilling thrillers, The Three and its follow up, Day Four. The Three was published in May 2014, whilst Day Four is to be published in May 2015, both by Hodder & Stoughton.
Of The Three and Sarah Lotz, critics said:
“Compulsive reading” — Marie-Claire
“Sarah Lotz has just written the perfect horror story. This will be undoubtedly one of the best horror stories published in 2014.” — The Book Plank
“It’s reminiscent of Stephen King’s CARRIE and THE THREE comes preloaded with praise from the master of horror himself. It deserves it: this high-concept thriller is a blast. — The Guardian
Tiptoeing the tightrope between fantasy and horror” — Daily Mail
“One of the finest, freakiest horror novels I’ve read.” — Chuck Wendig
“The author’s use of the oral-history format, with its shifting voices and points of view, is a stroke of genius: the reader is in a state of near-constant confusion at the beginning, which is slowly replaced by unease and then dread as the various commentators start to see the bigger picture. A very creepy, very effective novel.” — Booklist – David Pitt
