Lana Hutton Bowen-Judd (March 7, 1922 Bradford, Yorkshire, England - 1985 Toronto, Canada) was a British mystery writer, better known under her pseudonym Sara Woods, but using also the pen names of Anne Burton, Mary Challis, and Margaret Leek.

She was educated at the Convent of the Sacred Heart in Filey, Yorkshire.

During the Second World War, she worked in a bank and as a solicitor's clerk in London, where she gained much of the information later used in her novels. Lana married Anthony George Bowen-Judd on April 25, 1946, and ran with her husband a pig breeding farm between 1948 and 1954. In 1957 they moved to Nova Scotia, Canada. There she worked as a registrar for St. Mary's University until 1964. In 1961 she wrote her first novel, Bloody Instructions, introducing the hero of forty-nine of her mysteries, Anthony Maitland, an English barrister.

Lana Bowen-Judd was a member of the Society of Authors in England, the Authors League of America, the Mystery Writers of America, and the English Crime Writers' Association. She was also instrumental in forming the Crime Writers of Canada, serving on its first executive committee.

Her last years she lived with her husband at Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario.
