Sarah is currently finishing her course in Creative Writing at the London School of Journalism, where she wrote several short stories. At last she wrote with a group of special educated children a play called "Seiberspeis Ade". It was a non profit production and the donations were for an education project for UNICEF. She taught scenic-writing to pupils and the final work will be shown in February 2015 in Switzerland. In 2013 she wrote a blog whilst traveling to Asia and Australia which resulted in many followers and is now in the process of being transformed in to a novel. Sarah wrote a column about women,men,love and sex for an online platt-form in Switzerland. Her play "Der letzte Koffer" (The last Suitcase) was selected and made it to the final round for an 'transmedia' Production in Switzerland. She currently is also working on the side on her first novel.

Michael Ross is a graduate of the Royal Court's Young Writers Programme and was recently short-listed for Off West End.com's 'Adopt A Playwright 'award 2014. His work has been performed at various venues including Theatre 503, Southwark Playhouse,  Riverside Studios, the Arcola, the Old Vic Tunnels, the Kings Head and the Edinburgh Fringe. He was a finalist for two years running in the Old Red Lion's REDfest short play festival, and his full length play 'A Handful of Mustard Seed' received a rehearsed reading at the Bush in 2010 with Paula Wilcox in the lead role. In 2012 he was selected by the Writers Guild & RADA for their 'Plays of Innocence & Experience' development project, which resulted in a staged reading of his play 'Hungry Heart' at RADA Studios in early 2013, and his play 'Saving Souls In Soho' opened the inaugural 'Band Plays On' festival of gay-themed new drama at the Greenwich Theatre in September 2013. His writing has been described as "fun, sparky and full of ideas" (The Stage) "fast paced and very funny" (Socialist Worker) "comedy gold...fiendishly sardonic" (Hackney Hive) "deeply unnerving" (Vada magazine) and "well constructed and thought provoking" (the London Magazine).
