About the Author:
Sarah Ann Wormald is from Ilkley, West Yorkshire in the UK where she previously worked as a Solicitor. Sarah began diving in 1999 in the Red Sea in Egypt, and after having dived in numerous destinations around the world, she moved to Indonesia in 2007. Since her move to Asia, Sarah has become an instructor who has shared her passion with hundreds of students through teaching them how to explore the underwater world.

When Sarah is not teaching, she spends her time traveling Indonesia diving and photographing. From the outset of this project, Sarah's aim was to promote operators who dive safely and who protect and care for the reefs around them. Sarah's interests in Indonesian reefs, marine life, adventure and exploration led her to begin working on this book in 2013. Sarah currently lives and works full time in Indonesia.
