...to a little piece of my world. I write fiction from children's books to family-friendly stories aimed towards adults. I'm represented by agent Kaitlyn Sanchez at Context Literary for children's books.
On this website you can find out more about my books and stories and read about my experiences with everything bookish on my Sarah Hovorka, Proudly Bookish blog.
Sarah Hovorka is a bookworm and self-proclaimed homebody. Exploring our world and the vastness of the human experience through books, she hopes to share a little of her world through her own writings. She is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators and is pursuing a certificate in creative writing from UC San Diego. Sarah is represented by Kaitlyn Sanchez at Context Literary.
Sarah enjoys fiction of all sorts but is particularly drawn to speculative fiction. Her husband and three sons are just as eager to immerse themselves in a well-told story and her house is often filled with the sounds of read alouds, movies, video games, soundtracks, and role-play gaming. When she's not writing or playing, Sarah spends much of her time homeschooling and dealing with Crohn's Disease.
Becoming a Writer...from there to here
In high school, did you take a career aptitude test? Did you take the results to heart or immediately cast them aside with disdain? I was the latter teenager. Apparently, my perfect career match was…wait for it… Dictionary Editor.
Yep. So, I did what any headstrong, know-it-all teenager would do. I went to college pursuing a degree in astrophysics. That was interesting but halfway through I knew I didn’t want to dedicate the time or energy for any careers related to astrophysics. Anthropology it was. And that was interesting, too. Twenty years later, I finally realized I would have been a darn good Dictionary Editor. And like it. I like language. I like reading it, writing it, and experiencing it with others.
