I’m Sara and I’m passionately in love with writing. Before I could read, I referred to my illustrated children’s books as a guide to tell stories to whomever would listen. One of my most treasured books is A First Dictionary of Cultural Literacy that my father gave to me when I was about 5. It was my first dictionary, an introduction to the world at large, and I still own it, tattered and dogeared.
I have been blessed to turn my passion and my first love into my career. From drafting press releases or editing internal corporate communications to conducting interviews, crafting poems or testing recipes, I have relied and thrived always on the written word. I have developed skills in a variety of styles and can easily adopt a tone of voice specific to and complimenting any client. I pride myself on writing copy that is professional, clear, and concise, with proper grammar and punctuation.
My second love, a new passion, is food. I went gluten-free in 2009, just after the Indianapolis Colts lost Superbowl XLIV to the New Orleans Saints. (Literally. It was the day after the game!) After years of struggling with a series of seemingly endless (and random) illnesses, I was finally on the right path to wellness. Since then, I’ve discovered a deep and distinctive passion for creating both healthy and indulgent dishes that showcase local produce, pastured meats, farmers and artisanal handmade products. My goal is to create and share food that soothes, heals, inspires and ignites the soul without feeling deprived.
My weakness is chocolate. I’m obsessed with owls. I love Brussels sprouts (it’s true)! I collect old books, vintage cameras, drift wood and sea glass. I’m addicted to Instagram and didn’t drink coffee until I was 25. Born and raised in the suburbs of Detroit, MI, my heart always skips a beat when I see a classic car. (My dream automobile is a 1957 Chevrolet Belair.) I use the Oxford comma only when necessary; I carry a worn copy of The Elements of Style in my purse. I live in Seattle with my fiancé and our two cats: Quigley is a curmudgeonly but loving Mainecoon; I’m convinced that if he were a human, he would be Red Foreman from That ’70s Show. Tiberius is a cuddly Tuxedo with multicolored toes. He doesn’t know how to meow, chatters at squirrels, and is named after Captain Kirk.
