Sadie Mills | Indie Fiction Writer | Romantic Comedies
Seventeen year old convent schoolgirl Mary Lloyd has burnt her bridges in England. Failing her final set of exams; helping herself to a priceless family heirloom; smashing her mother’s lover’s windscreen.
Tiptoeing across the roofs in the middle of the night, Mary embarks on a journey, taking her from Cheltenham Spa halfway around the world. Back to her home in Ceylon, back to her childhood friend, Dani Fernando; back to her father again.
We join Mary at Southampton docks, waiting in line to board The Orientana. Travelling under a “borrowed” passport and the assumed identity of Mavis Biggleswade, Mary finds life onboard a bit of an eye-opener. A sweet little old lady, with a penchant for booze and matchmaking; an exotic-looking Etonian, with the decidedly unexotic name of George Jones. He offers to take Mary to see the pyramids; introduces her expensive Champagne; seems to want to give her the world. But there must be strings attached, surely? Perhaps he has a few skeletons of his own.
Set in the 1930s, The Passenger is a coming of age story. Mary finds herself forced to grow up PDQ. From infatuation to alcohol to acute embarrassment, this tragic comedy tells the tale of a young adult’s awkward transition from adolescence to womanhood; of identities lost, borrowed and found.

The Sadie Mills Freefall Trilogy focuses on fast-paced romantic comedies, set in the space of a day.

‘I’ll show you my darkroom…’It’s all the way up there with “Come up and see my etchings” and Eve knew it.
Virtually Perfect is a dark romantic comedy novel set in Brighton, England, exploring the world of internet dating.
Auctioneer, Evelyn Blake, needs a plus one for her colleagues’ wedding. No one likes rocking up to those things alone. Far from a bar bunny, she lands on an internet dating website. Amongst all the bare-chested mirror shots and men-with-no-neck, one dating profile stands out.
Shutterman has been single for a while (since walking in on his fiancée and best friend in the throes in his own bed). Years of hard work, one fluke Mont Blanc shot, and photographer Benjamin Macy finds himself catapulted to fame and fortune. Handsome, young, rich and accomplished, he’s the ultimate bachelor. Far from the smackheads and shootings of the Deptford tower block where he grew up, the past he tries so hard to hide.
Bubbling with humour, crackling with tension, sizzling with sex, from Brighton Pier to Iceland to the deserts of Saudi Arabia, Sadie Mills coaxes the reader into a web of intrigue, twisting and turning in a labyrinth of deceit. Sometimes sad, sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, by the time the fateful wedding day rolls around, she’ll have you on the edge of your seat.
