By day Sara Marks is a librarian in Massachusetts, but by night she’s an author, knitter, and Wikipedian. She has been writing as part of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) since 2004. Her first novel, Modern Persuasion, was published in May 2017 with Illuminated Myth Publishing. Her second novel, Phi Alpha Pi, is set for release on May 28, 2018.
Born in Boston, MA and raised in Miami, FL, Sara attended Florida State University for 3 years where she failed and dropped out. She eventually graduated with an A.A from Miami-Dade College and a B.A. from Florida International University before moving back to Boston for graduate school. There she got her M.S. in Library and Information Science from Simmons College and a M.S. in Communications from Fitchburg State University. Now Sara lives in Lowell, MA with her dog Cedric and cat Sabine. She’s a founding member of Mill Pages, a local writing group that creates an annual anthology of short stories, poems, and art work. She is also a member of the Society of Independent Publishers and Authors (SIPA), a group supporting writers in the Merrimack Valley.
