Sara Powter

About The Author

Sara Powter was born on the NSW Central Coast. Her childhood was spent with her family, travelling mostly up and down the East Coast of Australia, fishing, shell collecting and doing some of her education by Correspondence Schooling. With a passion for Science, she worked for the Department of Agriculture as a Scientific Assistant in the Entomology Department. She married Stephen soon after leaving there, and they spent thirty years in Ministry in the Newcastle Anglican Diocese in NSW, only retiring at the end of 2020. When ‘Covid 19’ hit, time was available to pen some of the stories she’d wanted to write. Eight stories were finished within just twelve months, and more are on the way (#14 should be finished by my 2-year anniversary of starting to write). These stories stem from her passion for Colonial Australia, her convict Ancestors and the amazing history of the Amazing country, Australia.
