Meet the Author

A native North Carolinian, Dr. Sadler set up what is thought to be the first microcomputer laboratory in the country for the teaching of writing (on the campus of Bennett College), pioneered in computer-assisted composition and coined the term, and published the first journal in the field (done with desktop publishing). As Vice President of Academic Affairs at Methodist College, she originated the first conference on academic computing in North Carolina. She was Visiting Distinguished Scholar in the "Educational Leadership for a Competitive America" seminar of the United States Office of Personnel Management, presented at the First International Milton Symposium in England, and was Director of a National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Seminar for College Teachers on "The Novel of Slave Unrest." A college president in Vermont before very many women filled such a role; she is a Distinguished Woman of North Carolina. Her academic publications include five books and some sixty-eight articles, and she has edited fifteen books/proceedings and three national journals.
Dr. Sadler now works full-time as a creative writer and an editor. She has a full-length poetry collection forthcoming and has had several chapbooks published, including To "Talk in That Book" of Nature (principally Native American poems), which received the Dickson Prize from the Georgia Poetry Society and was named the 2007 Alabama State Poetry Society Book of the Year. She was published in Pudding House's (invitational) National Archiving Project, won The Pittsburgh Quarterly's Hay Prize, tied for first place in Kalliope's Elkind Contest, was a runner-up for the Spoon River Poetry Review Editors' Prize Contest, and won the Poetry Society of America's Hemley Award. Her short story on Patrick Swayze won the Abroad Writers Competition/Fellowship (France). Another was a finalist for and was published in Del Sol Press's Best of 2004: The Robert Olen Butler Prize Anthology. A novel is forthcoming from elizaPress, which named her its Writer of the Year for 2007. She was commissioned to write a play for the First International Robert Frost Symposium. A second play on Frost was a Silver Medalist in the University of Tampa's Pinter Review Prize for Drama. A play on the Iraq wars won the 2008 Pearson Award at Wayne State. She gives readings of her poetry and fiction around the country and likes to write plays (and other works) on commission.
