I met the sensational Sarah Turnbull during a contest. We were honing our pitches at the time, and she made some killer suggestions to get mine in shape...but what caught my eye was the pitch for her work. I'm so looking forward to talking to her more about it, and any tips she has for other aspiring authors (including me!)
In 2001, Sarah joined the AmeriCorps NCCC and served ten months on a team “getting things done” across the US. She also went to art school, so there’s that.
Sarah is currently revising a YA dark fantasy novel, and finishing up the first draft of a modern fantasy MG.
Aside from writing, she experiments with vegan baking, runs ten to twenty miles per week (to offset all the baking), and volunteers at a local no-kill animal shelter. She is a founding member of Wordsmith Studio, a community for writers.
