My name is Sarah, my pronouns are she/her, and I am a storyteller. I have loved stories my whole life. I was an early and voracious reader. I got in more trouble for the books I read than any sort of actual mischief. I wrote my first book when I was about 13, by hand in two five subject spiral bound notebooks (that I still have). All I have ever wanted to be is a writer. I write science fiction, fantasy, horror, romance, weird, and poetry. If you like that kind of thing, maybe stick around a bit - see if my imaginary words and worlds are your cup of tea.
