About the Author

Sara used to work for a magazine, and now works for herself. When she's not recommending romance novels or correcting other people's work, she's trying to keep some plants alive, messing around with an America's Test Kitchen cookbook, obsessively buying picture books for her two adorable nephews, and stubbornly resisting technology upgrades. You can find more of her work at sarabrady.com.
