Sarah Madden is an autistic writer, originally from New Zealand. After four years living in the Middle East, she moved to Victoria where she has been based for the past five years. Since landing in Australia, Madden has rediscovered her love of writing and words, and was awarded a Write-ability Fellowship by Writers Victoria in 2014. Madden writes fiction, memoir and poetry, most with a lyrical, slightly magical treatment woven through the threads of the everyday. Madden has been published, as Sarah Widdup, by Underground Writers, The Big Smoke and Hot Chicks with Big Brains.
