Sarah J. Schmitt is a K-8 school librarian and Youth Service Professional for Teens at a public library who, in addition to planning a variety of events, enjoys opening up the world of books to reluctant readers.

I wallow for a little bit, pout even more and then something happens. The story beckons to me and I am drawn in. I'm a binge writer so once I focus on something, I can hammer out a novel in less than a month. (Of course, I never know what my kids are eating for dinner that month, but whatever.)(less)

A Few MG and YA Debuts I Want to Read... NOW!

I love reading YA debut novels. Even before I became a member of the Fearless Fifteeners, I would stalk the new release lists for the new kids on the block. (So hard not to make a NKOTB reference about hanging tough and how they made it step by step, oh baby, because you got the right stuff.) Oh heck... here's video from my youth.Now, where was I... oh, right... 2018 is going to be a great year fo Read more of this blog post »

“Life is a series of decisions that define us.”
Sarah J. Schmitt, It's a Wonderful Death

“no matter what the Grim Reaper says about not meaning to collect my soul, it doesn’t change the fact that I’m looking down at my lifeless body while my friends stare at each other. Hello? Call 911. Or maybe someone could start doing CPR. Idiots. “Come with me,” the Reaper insists, tugging on my arm. “There isn’t much time.” I shake him off and shoot my best withering glare in his direction. “I don’t think so. You saw what she did.
