About this author

Sarah Dunster is an award-winning poet and fiction writer. Her poems have been published in Dialogue: a Journal of Mormon Thought, Segullah Magazine, Sunstone Magazine and Victorian Violet Press. Her short fiction piece, Back North, is featured in Segullah’s Fall 2011 issue. She is a contributing author to Fire in the Pasture: 21st Century Mormon Poets, and her novel Lightning Tree was released April 10, 2012 by Cedar Fort. Sarah has seven children and loves writing almost as much as she loves being a mom.
