Sarah Darer Littman is the author of the middle-grade novel, Confessions of a Closet Catholic, which won the Sidney Taylor Award, along with the young adult novels, Purge, Life, After, and Want to Go Private?
Sarah always knew she wanted to be a writer, but she worked in a diverse number of fields before writing full-time. Among other things, she has been a financial analyst and a farmer's wife. When she was very young, she remembers that she wanted to be an airline stewardess, "which is pretty funny considering I really don't enjoy flying all that much," Sarah says.
When Sarah is not writing or reading, she loves playing tennis, swimming, and cooking, as well as seeing live music and playing bass guitar. She lives in Cos Cob, CT with her family and an adorable Havanese puppy named Benny.
