How did I get here?

Sarah M. Anderson headshotIt took a caffeine-fueled car trip with my 92-year-old grandmother and two-year-old son in July of 2007 to awaken my Muse. That story would become my first book as I figured out how, exactly, one writes a novel.

Let's just say the learning curve was steep.

One character led to another. Before long, my characters were in South Dakota, among the Lakota Sioux tribe. Modern-day cowboys who are the Indians - without planning it, I find myself writing about the people and places that held my imagination throughout my childhood.

Here's the official bio: 

With over 1.2 million copies published in over twenty-one countries, Sarah M. Anderson has published over 40 books. Sarah's book A Man of Privilege won a RT Book Reviews 2012 Reviewers’ Choice Best Book Award. The Nanny Plan was a 2016 RITA® winner for Best Contemporary: Short. Additionally, Sarah has given workshops at national and regional conferences, taught craft classes online, spoken at libraries and book clubs, and published articles in the Romance Writers Report.

I live in Illinois with my husband, son, and rescue mutts. I write full time (which is how one publishes that many books in that short a time period). I am a member of Romance Writers of America and the Chicago-North RWA. When not chasing my son around or tweaking my books, I attempt to read, craft, and complete a home improvement project in my historical 1895 Queen Anne house.
