About this author

A native Texan, Sara writes mysteries (the Ellie Avery series) and suspense (the On The Run series). As a military spouse, Sara has moved around the country (frequently!) and traveled internationally, which inspired her latest suspense novels. Publishers Weekly called Sara’s books, "satisfying," "well-executed," and "sparkling."

The first Ellie Avery mystery, MOVING IS MURDER, was a Reader's Choice Award Nominee in 2007 at the Salt Lake County Library and received a Distinguished Honor Award from the Military Writers Society of America. Sara's essays have also appeared in CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE MILITARY WIFE'S SOUL and magazines such as THE WRITER, GEORGIA MAGAZINE, and MYSTERY SCENE MAGAZINE.

“If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.”
Toni Morrison

“The best time for planning a book is while you're doing the dishes. ”
Agatha Christie

“If you show someone something you've written, you give them a sharpened stake, lie down in your coffin, and say, ‘When you’re ready’.”
David Mitchell, Black Swan Green

“You start into it, inflamed by an idea, full of hope, full indeed of confidence. If you are properly modest, you will never write it at all, so there has to be one delicious moment when you have thought of something, know just how you are going to write it, rush for a pencil, and start buoyed up with exaltation. You then get into difficulties, don’t see your way out, and finally manage to accomplish more or less what you first meant to accomplish, though losing confidence all the time. Having finished it, you know it is absolutely rotten. A couple of months later, you wonder if it may not be all right after all.”
Agatha Christie

Stan Law A belated thanks for choosing me to be among your friends, Sara. It may interest you that my book Marvin Clark—In Search of Freedom in now a matching FREE download on Amazon Kindle. If humor you like, humor you'll get. Enjoy it while you can. (A little review on Amazon wouldn't hurt either!)
