Originally from Maryland, Sarah studied Creative Writing and International Studies at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Sarah has written, taught, and worked all over the world—everything from teaching creative writing for adults with developmental disabilities, sorting fossils, and writing grants in Minnesota and getting Costa Rican teens excited about English grammar to coaching female entrepreneurs in rural Ghana and doing PR for multinational Fortune 500 tech companies.


Sarah currently runs communications for a youth writing nonprofit in Washington, D.C. This work also involves managing an associated magic shop, which is incredibly fun.


Fiction will always be her first love, but Sarah also writes poetry and nonfiction. Across all forms, Sarah is 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.
