My name is Sarah. I am 26 and I live in Bedford, Virginia. I have been writing since I could write a grammatically correct sentence, but I didn't take it seriously until 5th grade. In 2012 during NaNoWriMo, I started the book that would make me a published author, whether it was in three years, or thirteen.
In June of 2013, my grandmother told my mother and myself to quit our jobs in Tennessee and move to Virginia to take care of her. She was diagnosed with ALS. She died in September. I decided to try my hand at selling short stories because I need to get my name out there for when I publish an actual book.
I mainly write realistic fiction, but I'd like to try my hand at other genres for short stories. I look at it as practice. If I like what I write, I'll put it out there. And hopefully, you will too.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book, Times, is about five high school kids who are about to graduate, but are in need some changes in their life. Some know that, some don't. Some change, and some don't. It's all about who changes and who doesn't, why, and how it affects those who are around them.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
If I'm going to be a published author, I have to get my name out there now. What better way than to write smaller stories so people will recognize my name and already be familiar with the way I write.
