Sarah Osborn

Biography

My name is Sarah Osborn I am a full-time SF, Horror, and Fantasy indie writer; blogger of dogs, video games, and scary movies on whatapup.net; occasional artist; feminist; lifelong geek; and mother of a Pitador named Paris who is just a delight when she's not chewing on my shoes and socks. I am a newly published author with tons of manuscripts I've written over the years and never published.

With enough backlog to fill several years, I have now started the process of editing and formatting all of my manuscripts for publication and I've also been working on some new stuff, too!

I'm currently engaged to a magnificent, tall, bearded man named Tyler Osborn. He has supported me every step of the way in my journey and encouraged me to always FEEL as if I am a writer, because just because I had never published before September 2018, I have written stories and lived in my own little imagination land since I was 5-years-old.

Much of the inspiration for my writing comes from my lifelong struggle with anxiety and depression, as well as a fondness for the works of Clive Barker, Harlan Ellison, Shirley Jackson, Anne Rice, and Stephen King. My favorite movie series as a weird pre-teen was The Texas Chainsaw Massacre films. At one point I believe I had every single DVD and comic book set in that universe I could find. Between my love of Horror and Fantasy, and my anxiety and depression, I have found writing to be an awesome coping mechanism to help me express myself. I've always found that the genres of Horror, Science-Fiction, and Fantasy are some of the best creative tools we use to examine the nature of humanity and even madness.

That being said, I am honestly a cheery person (really!) and I tend to involve bits of humor here and there in my stories to liven the mood. My stories tend to also involve violence and other sensitive subjects, however, so that is my one caveat concerning my books if you find yourself triggered or uncomfortable concerning such topics.

Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I love to play video games, mostly RPGs and horror. I also love indie and horror films. My Labrador, Paris, is my whole world besides my fiance Tyler, and we love to watch movies and trashy reality shows together. I'm also a blogger and have my own website called What A Pup! where I write about writing and also create articles ranging in topics from horror film reviews to great ways for writers to earn cash on the side.
What do you read for pleasure?
My absolute favorite author is Clive Barker. I've never related to a writer more than I have to him, as I love how passionate he is about everything he does. He's an artist, a filmmaker, he creates comic books, video games, and so much more!
I also adore Anne Rice and Shirley Jackson, and of course I read a lot of Stephen King.
