me after writing ten words

I have a draft. It's not great, and it needs some work, but I wrote it while sick and pregnant and now with a newborn, so I'm proud of it. It's a thing. It exists. That's good enough for now.

Spin the Dawn is a 2019 Junior Library Guild Selection!! I am over the moon — thank you @JrLibraryGuild!🧵✂️☀️🌙✨💕

I am so excited to be able to talk about this!! #TheDeathlessGirls is my imagining of the origin stories of the ‘brides of #Dracula’, and what fun I’ve had! Can’t wait for you to meet Kisaiya & Lillai in September, & I can’t wait to meet @KitdeWaal’s Dinah in July. @HachetteKids

Okay, Atlas is cared for and I am at my desk. WORDS, COME TO ME. 💪

Staring outside at the sunshine. 💕☀️


My heart goes out to Paris. Notre Dame is a symbol of our ability as human beings to unite for a higher purpose—to build breathtaking spaces for worship that no one person could have built on their own. I wish France strength and shared purpose as they grieve and rebuild.

Notre Dame is one of the world’s great treasures, and we’re thinking of the people of France in your time of grief. It’s in our nature to mourn when we see history lost – but it’s also in our nature to rebuild for tomorrow, as strong as we can.

Y'all I'm so happy to share another STARRED review for JUST SOUTH OF HOME. More love for the kids from ALA Booklist. Another 🌟 for Sarah! #MGLit #KidLit #JustSouthofHome

I think I’ll spend a rainy afternoon doing some writing. 🌧

As I say in the article, I'm really pleased to have this opportunity to re-approach the books as a screenwriter. There are a few things I'd change about THE BONE SEASON if I wrote it now, and this gives me a chance to do that while keeping the heart of the story intact.

Very excited that THE BONE SEASON has been re-optioned, this time for TV.
