So let’s get back to that social media platform :P


Hi. So it’s been awhile….

Like five months, according to my stats. Last log on February 22nd. Oops.


I have excuses, really, I swear. I went through a few major life changes…

I signed with an agent! Claire Anderson-Wheeler at Regal Literary Management. Here’s the story. Also, even though it’s been like 6 months, I still feel the need to share a celebratory GIF because she’s been just so awesome. So bear with me.


I relocated from Singapore to Wisconsin and started full-time work in the schools in February. All the major life changes with that. Here’s that story.

So what have I been doing in the mean time? (other than NOT blogging) So I got a ton of agent feedback, which launched a MAJOR re-write of Hooligans. Like the entire first 2/3s. We’re talking about a second full-time job.

On my summer break, I went back to Singapore THEN had the opportunity to return to Belfast. Which…was…amazing. Like I can’t even….

Oh, and we’re expecting our first. Our baby’s due in October.


What can I say? I like to cram all my major life changes into six months.

I’m going to get back to blogging now, really, I swear!


I plan to focus on the *joys* of the writer’s life, tips on writing/querying, and photography. I’m no longer living the expat life or engaging in ridiculously awesome travel now that I’m back to normal life, but I suppose I’m about to start a whole new kind of adventure.

    Congratulations, Sarah! I’m glad that you came back with good news. It’s an encouragement to all of us aspiring authors. Good luck on finding a home for Hooligans 🙂

    Well good thing you posted when you did. I was just reviewing some of the blogs I follow and culling those that hadn’t had any action for quite awhile. Put I had a feeling that a writer might be back. Congrats on all your good news and welcome back to Wisconsin.
