Both involve two people with sharp intellects who find in the other a worthy match (well, Elizabeth might be smarter than Darcy), and who also find in the other a loyal companion for life. (less)

Announcing my debut fiction, coming summer 2023!

HERE IT IS, FRIENDS! The moment you’ve all been waiting for.

After 22 years in nonfiction, I’m now doing what I love best: writing portal fantasy for geeky 14-year-old me (eep!!). Get ready for ONCE A QUEEN, the first in a YA series, coming summer of 2023 from WaterBrook & Multnomah, an imprint of Penguin Random House. Books #2 and #3 will follow annually thereafter…and who knows after that?

Quotes by Sarah Arthur  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“If only life were more on the scale of Orlando Bloom taking down the giant Oliphaunt in The Return of the King rather than the usual, tedious mall-crawl with the Abercrombie crowd! We often wish the daily grind held a greater resemblance to all those fantasy worlds we’ve come to love, don’t we? In our more desperate moments, we’re tempted to walk smack into pillars at subway stations, just to see if we end up at Platform Nine and Three-Quarters. And which of us, at some point in our not-so-distant childhood (yes, let’s be honest!), hasn’t pushed aside the coats in a closet, hoping to find an entrance to another world?”
Sarah Arthur, Walking Through the Wardrobe: A Devotional Quest Into the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

“And that’s what we’re truly longing for. On those weekends when we’re suddenly gripped with the urge to watch all three extended editions of The Lord of the Rings, what we really want, deep down inside (besides therapy), is the assurance that there is a realm someplace where evil has been conquered once and for all.”
Sarah Arthur, Walking Through the Wardrobe: A Devotional Quest Into the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

“The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; which means that if the rest of us want to get close to God, we seek them out-not because of what we could possible offer them, as if we're the spiritual first responders on the scene to save the day, but because we recognize how much they have to teach us about who God really is." -Quoted by Sarah Arthur, Author of The One Year Daily Grind.”
