Sarah Ban Breathnach slots.
Breathnach was born Sarah Crean in Westbury, New York. Her first ambition was to become an actress and at age 25 she moved to London to pursue this career while working as a secretary. This pursuit was unsuccessful and she tried writing, eventually selling her first article about fashion to a trade magazine. She returned to Washington in 1975 and was published in newspapers such as The Washington Post. In 1979 she married Ed Sharp. While recovering from a head injury she developed an interest in some Victorian-era magazines, and this led to the publication in 1990 of Mrs Sharp's Traditions and two years later in The Victorian Nursery Companion. Thirty publishers turned down Simple Abundance before Warner Books agreed to publish the book in 1995. Also in 1995, Ban Breathnach founded the Simple Abundance Charitable Fund, which has aided over 100 non-profit organizations by awarding over $1 million in financial support. Ban Breathnach started the Simple Abundance Press in 1998 with the intent of issuing books in the spirituality and life style market under it.
Sarah has one daughter, Kate Sharp. Kate lives in Southern California and is a film and TV producer.
