Sarah Smith has been interested in ghosts and storytelling since she was four. Her sitter told her Japanese ghost stories at night, which she retold on the schoolbus the next morning. When she heard the story of the haunted house and the Perkins Bequest, she knew she had to write about it. No one knows what became of the real Perkins Bequest. She hopes The Other Side of Dark may help solve the mystery.

The Other Side of Dark is her debut novel for young adults.

Sarah studied English at Harvard (where she hid out in the library reading mysteries) and film in London. She is the bestselling author of an adult mystery series set in Edwardian Boston and Paris; two of the books have been New York Times Notable Books of the Year, and one was a Lond

First thoughts on iBooks Author

I downloaded iBooks Author and I've played around with inputting a fairly crunchy eBook I happened to have recently created, using other production tools. (That's A New Shakespearean Poem, for those of you who have been following this blog.  ANSP has footnotes, verse, and all sorts of non-standard goodies.)

First, it is lovely and easy to use.  I never want to use another production tool.  I tried Read more of this blog post »

“Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.”
Frederick Douglass

Sarah Smith asked a question about The Golden Enclaves:
The Golden Enclaves by Naomi Novik
I've read THE LAST GRADUATE twice, trying to console myself for the third book not being out already. It's not helping. Wait a YEAR???! What an ending. You know exactly why he does it, and he's screwing up everything for both of them.

“I shall tell you what I believe. I believe God is a librarian. I believe that literature is holy...it is that best part of our souls that we break off and give each other, and God has a special dispensation for it, angels to guard its making and its preservation.”
