She loves chocolate, hates coffee, and nine out of ten times prefers to be home with a book.

Sarah received a Bachelor of Arts in Humanities from Scarborough College and wrote her senior thesis on the effect epistemology had on the practice of pragmatism.  Sarah’s primary interests include raising quail, petting dogs, and writing with clarity, truth, and beauty in mind.
