About Sarah Sawler

My Story

In addition to writing (and promoting) her own books, Sarah markets other people’s books as the publicist for Conundrum Press, a literary graphic novel publisher based in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. She’s also a former bookseller; years of experience at Woozles Children’s Bookstore in Halifax (Canada’s oldest children’s bookstore!) provided her with valuable publishing insight into everything from cover design to merchandising, and cemented her love of children’s literature. 

Sarah is also a freelance writer with bylines in Atlantic Books TodayQuill & Quire, ParentsCanada, The Loop, Halifax Magazine, and more.  She has also worked as an online technical writing instructor for Dalhousie University’s Continuing Education Department, spoken to elementary school classes, facilitated professional development courses, presented at conferences and festivals, signed piles of books, and once created a fictional biography for a rooster.

She lives in Halifax with her partner, two kids, one cat, one dog, one bearded dragon, and one crested gecko. 


Growing up is highly overrated. Just be an author.
