About Sarah Burrow

Sarah came to Cardiff of her own free will in 2007 and hasn't managed to escape yet. Her university years saw her become President of the Harry Potter society, develop a fondness for vampires and a taste for red wine. She may have done a bit of studying as well, though she firmly denies this. Although Harry Potter remains her first love, she has become an enthusiastic fan of New Who. She is comfortable with her knowledge of Silurian and Slitheen but she is happy to let the others deal with the old monsters from the days of papier mache and spell-o-tape...sorry sellotape. Sarah is a fan of urban fantasy, paranormal romance, and dystopian series and is occasionally led astray by police procedurals. She is a regular on the podcast although has no idea how she got there! When not indulging her geek habit she works as an Occupational Therapist in her spare time.
