    Catchpenny: Author Sarah Wathen

    in Books

    An artist turned author, Sarah Wathen is a storyteller by trade and a painter at heart. She was trained in Classical Painting at the University of Central Florida, then completed graduate studies in Fine Art at Partons School of Design in New York City. 


    Her first step into the world of independent publishig was as an illustrator, and Sarah quickly realized she wanted to write her own books rather than illustrate others. That reinvention came as no surprise to family and friends, who remember her as a child always ready to turn a tale. Hours spent under the backyard stairs with her sister - dreaming up imaginary friends with outlandish names like Afisha and Pekins, and designing social networks called the Plant Club and The Tutu Group - were recorded and illustrated, too. Copies still exist under lock and key! Sarah currently resides in Florida and runs the indie label, LayerCake Productions.

    Meet author Janna Beatty. I'll be ''chatting' with her about her book, Quintessential Style.


    About the book:


    People dress daily…yet most don’t look in the mirror and feel attractive and confident.  People LOVE talking about this topic!  Qstyle shifts from fashion to personal style.  We all have personal essence, and expression of that essence is our style.  I communicate the fundamentals of style.  Suddenly it becomes a logical formula instead of an emotional or external experience.  The result is confidence.


    Topics of interest:


    -Your closet is a river, not the Dead Sea.  Why don’t we get rid of stuff?


    -There are only 3 things you need to know to make your wardrobe work, so you look and feel great.


    -Make your wardrobe (I call it your “private collection”) better and better, not just fatter and fatter when you shop. 


    -How to dress skinny:  Three simple questions to determine your ideal silhouette.
