Sarah E. serves as kid wrangler at an interactive history park. Her 100 youth volunteers are her best consultants in the fields of humor, teenage angst, and spinning wheels (which, they assure her, are not hazardous to anyone but Sleeping Beauty). She is actively involved in the local writing community, including Noble Poets. Waking Beauty is her first novel. It earned her a spot as finalist in the American Christian Fiction Writers Genesis Contest. She has written articles and poetry for local publications and international periodicals in the museum field. Her dramatic works range from a musical about Susan B. Anthony to fairy tale poetry. She enjoys performing her work, especially pieces that allow her to dress up in her queen costume. She studied fairy tales extensively at Butler University, but when she grows up she wants to be a child prodigy.
