Sarah Doughty

Biography

The night calls to me in moonlit whispers and my daydreams answer.

Conjuring words from the ether is like breathing — my weapon — my therapy. It allows me to weed through all the pain, in an effort to find myself again.

My name is Sarah Doughty and I suffer from complex PTSD, depression, and debilitating anxiety. And if I don’t have a migraine, I have a headache. Every. Single. Day. Though I am terrified of the night, crowds, and much more, this darkness has become my home.

If writing is my breath, then my books are my life. While my poetry focuses on singular events meant to evoke feeling or spur memories, fiction is where my heart lies. Though my books are a way for me to escape my mind and experience a magical world, deep down the problems are very real. And in many ways, my characters are vivid and alive, which in turn helps me see the world in a better light.

I've shared them online for anyone who wants to read them — for free, to offer someone else hope, or the same, temporary escape as they did for me.

Smashwords Interview

When will the next book be released?
Safe is due to be released July 2021. It takes place immediately after the events in Listen.

The next book will be released late 2021. Following the events in Safe, Stronger Than Blood, the first Earthen Knight novel follows Marcelline Webster as she seeks refuge at Liam’s home after the majority of her family is murdered in New Orleans.
Tell me a little about yourself and what led you to writing.
Writing is my hobby, but is also my passion. The ability to tell stories, as I see them play out in my head is a way for me to express myself and to cope with the events of day-to-day life.

  • The Mist Calling on Oct. 24, 2018

    I had the pleasure of reading this beauty before its release and I was blown away by the imagery and the metaphors Ms. Singh used to articulate love and loss, and the memories left behind. It was immersive, full of what many in the poetry community call "the feels," and it left a lasting impression on me. I highly recommend this to anyone that has ever loved and lost -- and to those that have come out the other side a better person. A wiser person. Embark on the journey into the mist with Ms. Singh. You won't regret it.
