Just updated with a full chapter on my "Latest Work" page! It's been more spring-like lately, which feels very motivating for writing :)

In the "Latest work" page, you can check out my latest story, Hometown Girl. This manuscript is currently in the works, but I will be posting updates to the novel at least once a week. I will just add on to the bottom of the existing content. Feel free to comment with ideas, suggestions or questions. Thank you!

Welcome to Words & Coffee, a blog about writing and life. I'm Sarah, a high school English teacher and writer who loves to explore the outdoors and to inspire others. I'm an avid reader and thinker, and I write young adult novels mainly (though I love to write a little of everything) because I enjoy the energy and versatility of minds at that age. I am always listening for new ideas by observing the life around me and searching for inspiration. I have a lot of faith and I love being around people, most of the time. My greatest passions include cuddling up with coffee and a good book, canoeing down a lazy river on an autumn afternoon, writing in a busy coffee shop, and sitting around a bonfire with friends on a summer evening, to name a few. I strongly believe in the strength and power of the underdog as well as believing in yourself, even in the darkest of circumstances.  Feel free to explore my blog, where I will post my latest stories and ideas. Thank you for visiting.
