Sara’s love for words began when her mother read the dictionary to her every night. A teacher’s unexpected whisper, “You’ve got writing talent,” ignited her writing desire. But Sara ignored that whisper and pursued a teaching career instead.

After retiring from full-time teaching, Sara began pursuing her teenage dream of becoming a published writer.  Since then she's written over 100 memoir vignettes and personal narratives and is combing them into a yet to be published book, Shoebox Stories. She's also written her first novel, Secrets at Dillehay Crossing, that she's currently editing and preparing for publication. When not writing, Sara spends time walking and gardening with Bill, her husband of 40 years.

Sara enjoys her affiliation with and support she receives from Story Circle Network and The National League of American Pen Women. When not writing, she enjoys spending her time with her husband Bill and volunteering with the Anna Area Historical Preservation Society..
