Her books have been published in the UK and internationally, including USA and India and her features and short fiction have been published in a wide variety of publications including that's life, Times Educational Supplement, Best, Here's Health, Zest, Packaging Today and many more. Her debut novel, If Wishes Were Horses, was launched to great reviews and nominated for a Guardian award.

As a freelance copywriter she won contracts with high profile companies such as Benckiser (producers of Finish dishwasher products and Vanish) and WH Smith. For the latter she wrote The Good Handwriting Guide, An Introduction to Calligraphy and the Painting for Pleasure series to accompany their products. Sallyann also founded a magazine which she sold two years later with a readership of around 30,000. Sallyann has worked with publishers critiquing manuscripts, writing book blurbs, titles and promotional material. She is also a qualified stress management consultant and trainer. She also studied training in the USA and led Sallyann's Bookscourses on writing at the University of Wales, Writers Holiday, and throughout Europe. Many of Sallyann's writing students have gone on to win competitions, be published, and for some it becomes a career path.

When asked, her writing and coaching clients all speak of her 'indefinable energy...', 'a beauty of spirit...' and the fact that she 'couldn't fail to impact positively on their lives.' .
As an avid writer and reader, Sallyann is often found anywhere there is an event around writing (or in Costa drinking lattes!) and as such has an opportunity to discuss writing and publishing with agents, publishers and other writers. She also has a writing group named after her.
Sallyann is a member of The Society of Authors and has been interviewed on BBC and Regional Radio about her books and work. Also Channel 4 TV interviewed her as someone who has overcome adversity to follow her dream.
