About Sarah

I am a writer of young adult fiction, mostly fantasy and historical, and am on a mission to read all the Newberry Award and Honor books. Outside the world of books, I spend my time driving my sister to Target, making cheese in my kitchen, and being an optimistic fan of the Iowa State Cyclones, Chicago Cubs, Green Bay Packers, and Carolina Hurricanes.
