My name is Sarah and I’m a digital marketing and social media management professional currently based in Pittsburgh, Pa. I’ve previously lived in New York City and both Anaheim and Orange, California.

My cat, Lola, is pictured above. She’s 12 years old and I adopted her in Southern California.

I’ve held many jobs over the years, including summer camp lifeguard and boating instructor, church youth group director, bookseller, research assistant, sandwich maker, and more. I’ve worked in a bookstore and in a Top 5 publishing house, at a public pool and in a bagel shop, in a nut house (selling nuts and candy) and now in a museum.

I’ve been a writer my entire life. The earliest story I ever wrote was in the second grade, and it was self-illustrated (I can’t draw very well at all). I chose my college because of its Creative Writing concentration. I continued writing through graduate school, where I decided to pursue an MFA.

I write now, too and am always hard at work on a new novel, a smattering of short stories, or, when I’m feeling transcendental, poetry.
