Sarah J. Bradley is lifelong Upper Midwest girl who lives with her college sweetheart husband, her two children, and her four rescue cats in Wisconsin. When not writing, Sarah spends time searching for a a restaurant with great soup, finding that perfect cup of coffee and going to as many Rick Springfield concerts as possible. If you're looking for her, she's most likely sitting in the far corner of a Panera Bread Company, wearing a Green Bay Packers sweatshirt or a Detroit Redwings jersey.
What are you working on next?
I'm putting the finishing touches on the first book in a new series which is very exciting for me. The book is currently entitled "Missing in Manitowoc" and it's the first book in my Nora Hill mystery series. This series is a bit of a departure for me because 1) It's not a romance and 2) it's more in the inspirational genre, a genre I've long thought I'd fine in. It wasn't until Nora popped into my brain, however, that I had the courage to really explore a character who is flawed but is trying to make sense of her religious upbringing and find answers to the questions she has about her own faith. Meanwhile, she's constantly finding herself in a life or death search for a missing child. And, oh yeah, she has Prosopagnosia, face blindness. So her life is a challenge on many levels.
Who are your favorite authors?
I love all things Bronte, of course. Stephen King, while I'm not a horror fan, I have read his book "On Writing" which is simply a must for anyone thinking about taking on writing as a career. These days I read anything Phillipa Gregory, Adriana Trigiani, and Billie Letts put out. Also, in the realm of really new authors, I love Linda Schmalz and Stacey Joy Netzel.
