I like to say I write about ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. Pen/Faulkner chose my third novel, CATCHER, CAUGHT, for its Writers in Schools program. It was a semi-finalist in the 2009 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Contest. My other novels include WALTZING COWBOYS, a 2009 nominee for the Library of Virginia Fiction Award, and WHITE LIES: A TALE OF BABIES, VACCINES, and DECEPTION, the story of one mother’s quest for the truth about the childhood vaccine that injured her son, and MINDING HENRY LEWIS, another river story about the unlikely alliance between the sister of a boy who drowns and her white neighbor recovering from cancer. Other prize-winning fiction has appeared in Antietam Review, New Millenium, SouthLit, Pedestal, the Ho ...more

“Edit more, my mantra.”
Sarah Honenberger

“I get it that no one can really understand what another person feels. But it’s the idea that chores or school or life don’t have to drag you down if you stick together. That’s what clicks with me. Or did. Too late to lose sleep over it now. Even”
Sarah Honenberger, Catcher, Caught

Sarah Honenberger A writer's dream, to contemplate a full shelf of books they've written and shared with enthusiastic readers. Thanks. Shine, you're no slouch yourself in the editing department. Waltzing Cowboys is much better for your close read.
