About the Author

Sara Stark is Nellie Williamson's alter ego. She grew up on a farm outside a small town in middle Georgia, but having been married to a Navy man for nearly fifteen years, she has lived in most parts of the US at one time or another.

She has spent the past twenty-three years in the crazy and demanding world of Corporate America. So when the morass of making a living got boring, as a creative outlet, she took up writing fiction.

She now lives in Seattle, Washington, and has certificates from the University of Washington in Literary and Popular Fiction, has attended three writers' retreats. She was also a finalist in the Mainstream Literary Contest at the 2012 Pacific Northwest Writers' Association (PNWA) Conference.

You can find Sara and Nellie on Facebook or at With that Said: on becoming an author (

Even though Dustin Higbee and Ken Stoble are credited on the Nook title...(they were really the editors) It was written by Sara Stark. The story had me hook, line and sinker with in the first page. It was an interesting journey with a bit of occult, mystery and ill placed desire. Sara does a great job of representing the New Orleans Voodoo Practices respectfully and shows the reaches of it ... if you believe.

In this dark novella, set in modern day New Orleans, Sara Stark draws a unique story narrated in first person by the main character Janice. Janice's introspective narration is at once engaging and frustrating. Frustrating because you know she's headed to a no good place, yet compelling because of Stark's attention to detail and darkly humorous inner dialog. You follow Janice as she struggles to emerge from under the shadow of a judgmental and dominating mother figure; Janice's fraying self-worth leads her deeper and deeper into an entangled set of relationships. Couillon has a couple of characters that I wish Stark had developed more and given us a bit more of. I felt the story drew me to its conclusion because I wanted find out how everyone fared through the voodoo.

It’s a gripping story indelibly burned into my mind. Couillon is a coming of age cautionary tale, borne out of a need to find happiness through others. It’s a beautifully written story pinpointing the dangers of an unanalyzed life. It left me wanting more story...and gumbo. Stark walks the reader through the New Orleans story with good foreshadowing. I enjoyed the writing. So will you. Here are some quotes: The cloying smell of patchouli and sandalwood loitered heavily in the air, air already laced with the musky smell of sweat. We bought bricks and mortar that day, but never built the flowerbed. ...playing at love with T-Bo became a regular occurrence. The anger I carried around regarding his death had cured my emotions as if they'd been hung over a low fire for a thousand years It’s a MUST READ!
