Sarah Laing

Sarah Laing is a fiction writer and graphic artist from New Zealand.

She comes at books from all angles, writing as well as designing and illustrating them. The author of a graphic memoir, two novels and a collection of short stories, she has also illustrated children’s books and designed and co-edited an anthology of New Zealand women’s comics.

In 2013 Sarah was the University of Auckland/Michael King Writers Centre fellow, and there she worked on her graphic memoir, Mansfield and Me. Grappling with Katherine Mansfield’s legacy as New Zealand’s finest short-story writer, she examined her own desire to be a ‘real writer’ in lush watercolour illustrations.

She lives in Wellington and is a mother of three.
