Originally from Maryland, Sarah graduated cum laude from Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota, with degrees in Creative Writing and International Studies.

Sarah has written, taught, and worked all over the world—everything from teaching a creative writing course for adults with developmental disabilities, sorting fossils, and writing grants in Minnesota to getting Costa Rican teens excited about English grammar, coaching female entrepreneurs in rural Ghana, and doing web development for multinational Fortune 500 tech companies. Sarah currently helps run a combination magic shop and writing center in Washington, D.C.

 

Fiction will always be her first love, but Sarah also writes poetry, journalism, essays, and corporate communications. Across all forms, Sarah remains interested in the intersection of stories and in the mechanics of how words create change. 

 

When Sarah isn't writing or reading, she enjoys traveling, volunteering at her local animal shelter, drinking tea, and watching entirely too much television.
