In writing my upcoming YA book, THIS IS MY BRAIN ON BOYS, my editors were concerned about an arc involving two star-crossed students. The students are Chinese, pressured by their over-bearing parents to concentrate on school, not love. romeoWas the story line racist? Cliche?

The truth is, it never would have occurred to me to include these characters if I hadn't witnessed the blossoming - or, ra... Read more of this blog post »

“This is probably the advantage of being stupid. Stupid people just do. We tend to overthink. If we could eliminate the “over” and just think, then we could do, too. Only we’d be smarter doers because we’d be thinkers.”
Sarah Strohmeyer, Smart Girls Get What They Want

“In fiction, I searched for my favorite authors, women I have trusted to reassure me than not all teenage guys are total ditwads, that the archetype of the noble cute hero who devotes himself to the girl he loves has not gone the way of the rotary phone. That all I had to do was be myself (smart, hardworking, funny) and be patient and kind and he and I would find each other.

As Bea would say, this why they call it fiction.”
Sarah Strohmeyer, Smart Girls Get What They Want

“A mother is a mother from the moment her baby is first placed in her arms until eternity. It didn't matter if her child were three, thirteen, or thirty.”
Sarah Strohmeyer, Kindred Spirits
