Toronto, Canada

Sarah Hampson is an award-winning columnist and feature writer for The Globe and Mail. She has written for all of Canada's major magazines, including Toronto Life, Saturday Night (defunct), Chatelaine, Report on Business Magazine and Canadian Art. Best known for her incisive profiles of people, she has written on a range of subjects from motherhood of three boys, divorce, trekking on the world's largest uninhabited island in the High Arctic, late-night browsing on the Shopping Channel and the retail magic of Holt Renfrew. She has also written for British newspapers, including The Observer.

In 2007, Hampson came on staff at The Globe and debuted her popular column, Generation Ex, a taboo-breaking weekly feature that examined the culture of divorce and the emotional archaeology beneath some of our happiest and most difficult romantic decisions. Her memoir, Happily Ever After Marriage, A Re-invention in Mid Life, is a Canadian best-seller.
