Sarah Limardo has been telling stories for as long as she can remember.
During her high school years, she discovered Inkpop.com, a writing website for teens run by HarperCollins. At the end of each month, the top stories were reviewed by HarperCollins editors, and Sarah’s short story “Before the Hatter Went Mad” was the highest rated. Years after the story was reviewed, it was discovered on Wattpad.com and is currently being optioned to become a film by Big Cat Productions.
In 2015, she graduated from Regent University with her B.A. in Creative Writing, followed by her M.A. in Strategic Communication in 2020. While in school, she worked for one of the largest non-profits in the country where she had the opportunity to co-host a podcast and interview authors such as Annie F. Downs, Tim Keller, Shiela Walsh, John Mark Comer, Paula Faris, and John O’Leary. Now she lives near Salt Lake City where she works as an editor.
Sarah is passionate about children's and youth fiction; she devoted countless hours of study during her masters program to understand how stories can affect young minds. When she isn’t spending her downtime exploring the mountains, she reads and writes novels. Her writing is inspired by Greek mythology, ancient Greek history, and European folklore. She's a big fan of retellings and dark fairy tales.
Her favorite books are The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern and All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. Her favorite authors include Marie Lu, Julie Kagawa, Tahereh Mafi, and Laini Taylor.
