Get to know Sara...
Birthday? June 6, 1982
When did you start writing? As a fetus, I imagine, although I don't remember.
When and what and where did you first get published? A short story called "Kenny G Can Blow Me," based on my aunt's date with a narcoleptic, published in the Spring 2012 edition of Blue Guitar Magazine.
What themes do you like to write about? Love. It's always love, whether it's happy, cheerful love; down and dirty love; or love that you fight and fight and fight ... Oddly, I also write horror.
What books and/or stories have most resonated with you as an author? Why? How do these stories and their characters find expression in your work? The first story that really smacked me in the face was "The Yellow Wallpaper" by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, maybe because I suffer from mental illness and I never wanted to end up misunderstood and locked in a room. (Stephen King stories have always left me similarly unhinged.) I have written extensively about mental illness in my non-fiction, but where fiction is concerned, I like to escape completely into characters and scenarios unlike my normal day-to-day writer's life. Authors like Gilman and King do affect my style, however, as I'm a firm believer in the rule: If you want to become a better writer, you must first become a better reader.
