Please welcome author Sarah Showfety to Best Ever You Radio! Sarah join us to discuss her new book, Dating By the Books

Sarah Showfety was celebrating her 33rd year on the planet when she realized something alarming: it was her ninth consecutive birthday without a boyfriend (and also the age by which she thought she’d have three children already). After years swinging and missing on the New York scene, perpetually single Sarah had tried it all—speed, blind and online dating, Meet Market Adventures and Singles’ Rodeo Night—still, no guy lasted longer than the half and half in her empty refrigerator. And certainly not long enough to bring home to meet her aging parents. While friends married, mortgaged and multiplied, she dined aloneon Triscuits in her one bedroom Brooklyn rental and bought baby presents for her friends’ newborns online, wondering if it would ever be her turn.

Born and raised in Westfield, New Jersey, Sarah attended UNC-Chapel Hill in Chapel Hill, NC and lived there for two years post graduation. Before she became a writer and coach, she worked in marketing, finance, documentary film production and spent two years with the Peace Corps in Guinea, West Africa. Her love of travel has taken her to 30 countries.

Sarah married her Mr. Right in April of 2012. They live in Brooklyn and welcomed their sweet baby girl in March of 2013.
