Welcome! I’m Sarah—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 in all 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 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. My most recent manuscript, Healer’s Quest, finaled in ACFW’s 2019 Genesis Contest.
My husband and I live in Virginia with our two daughters, and we will soon welcome our third baby (another little girl!). 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.
I participate in the group blog Lands Uncharted, with a number of awesome fantasy writers. You can also check out my devotional writings at sarahnasal.com. If you would like to learn a bit more about me, you can check out an interview at The Writer’s Lair.
