About Sara O. Thompson

My first attempt at a book read suspiciously like a certain required-reading novel whose title rhymes with “Gourd of the Spies.” I moved on from plagiarizing famous authors and into writing terrible poetry. Then the poetry stopped being so terrible. I started writing short stories, which were also not so terrible. Eventually I tried writing a book that I came up with on my own. It was terrible. So I wrote three more to get the hang of things. And here we are.

When I’m not writing, I perform improv comedy, tell stories on stage, ballroom dance, and craft. I also have identical twin sons. My husband is an ICU nurse and is a great person to be married to if you are an improv person, a book lover, and a nerd. He’s also handy in medical emergencies.

My favorite authors in no particular order: Jane Austen, Neil Gaiman, China Mieville, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Pablo Neruda, Charles Dickens, and Flannery O’Connor.
