Sara L. Russell was born in Woking, England. She grew up in Staines and was educated mainly in Surrey, after her family moved first to Devon, then to a small village in Surrey called Blindley Heath. It was her
boredom in this small village (she has since moved on) which first drove her to draw cartoons - and begin to write poetry. In recent years, the internet has become an essential part of Sara's poetry activities. After devising the light-hearted nickname in her newsgroup signature, "Pinky Andrexa, last of the Cyber Vixen Poets from Outer Space", she set up a web page to showcase the work of other poets as well as her own, also giving publisher addresses. She then started a poetry ezine, which features interviews with both professional and amateur poets from the UK and the USA. Through this ezine Sara met her current publisher, Elaine Davis, of Kedco Studios / Artist Profile Press, and was later delighted to win Kedco's January 1999 poetry competition with her poem "The Insomniac's Prayer". This poem was featured on Kedco's Turn of The Century Award Winners Anthology on CD rom. Her first complete collection was PINKY'S LITTLE BOOK OF SHADOWS, which was Kedco's first CD ROM to feature video recitals.
Her second multimedia book with Kedco is called LIFE, TIME AND THE GOLDEN HOUR OF SLEEP, which she has also illustrated. Her work has appeared on various websites including Charlotte's Web at Artvilla, Aylad, Avalon and Curiouser and Curiouser (this latter site was under a different pen name).
She is currently working on a full-length novel. No
details of this are currently available, but many late nights and a few
chilled lager beers may well be involved.
