I'm Sarah Sawyer...
I’m a dreamer, writer, and lover of fantastic stories. As long as I can remember, reading and story-weaving have been part of my life. When I was a child, my dad read The Chronicles of Narnia and The Hobbit to me, both excellent introductions to the world of fantasy. From there, I was hooked on speculative fiction!
Though I read and enjoy many genres, fantasy remains my favorite. I love journeying to wondrous worlds others have invented, and of course, crafting my own and exploring them alongside my characters. I believe we were made in the image of the Creator, and it’s a delight to engage in the process of sub-creation with Him.
I’ve been a member of American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) for many years and served in a number of volunteer roles: area coordinator, category coordinator for the Genesis Contest, and judge for the Carol Awards.
One of my recent manuscripts, Healer’s Quest, an epic fantasy novel, finaled in ACFW’s 2019 Genesis Contest and won OCW’s 2020 Cascade Awards in the speculative fiction category. I’m now hard at work on a new gaslamp fantasy series that I’m quite excited about!
My husband and I live in Virginia with our three daughters. In this season, writing fits in between all the myriad joys, challenges, and adventures of mothering little ones—and my stories have become all the richer for it.
