Sabine was born in Germany and originally trained as a bookseller (Chamber of Commerce accredited), before studying English Language, Arts History and Comparative Literature at Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz. Life threw her a little curveball and she moved across the continent to rural Oxfordshire in 2002 with her partner and two horses, shortly before she could finish studies. Five months later her daughter was born.
Sabine has worked as a bilingual customer service administrator for the last 15 years. In her spare time, she works as a translator and bilingual proof reader (www.sschreinertranslation.co.uk) and works towards a translation degree – she says she doesn’t like unfinished business.
In 2008, she founded the Midsomer Murders Society and organises its events (www.midsomermurderssociety.com), raising money for various charities.
Her varied interests include horses (the current herd consists of only three, to her partner’s relief), archaeology, travelling, photography (https://bumblebee174.picfair.com), reading at serious bookworm level and, of course, writing television location guides.
