Sarah Aronson


Sarah Aronson began writing for kids and teens when someone in an exercise class dared her to try. Since then, she has earned an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts, and published the following books for kids and teens: Head Case, Beyond Lucky, and Believe, a young MG series, The Wish List as well as Just Like Rube Goldberg, illustrated by Robert Neubecker, Brand New Bubbe, illustrated by Ariel Landy.

Her next picture book is a biography of Bella Abzug, called Abzuglutely: Battling, Bellowing Bella Abzug. (Calkins Creek, Astra Publishing).

When Sarah is not writing or reading (or making great soup or riding her bike), she is talking to readers about creativity, writing, social action, and of course, sparkle power! She loves working with other writers in one of her classes at the amazing Highlights Foundation, SCBWI, or Writers on the Net. Warning: When she gets really excited, she makes funny faces and talks with her hands. Don’t be shocked if she talks about the power of play. She lives in Chicago, Illinois.- www.saraharonson.com

Sarah explains her dot: " I take Lynda Barry's advice on getting started--and entering the creative portal--by making what I'm going to call a "swirladot." Every morning, this is the first thing I do. It helps me say goodbye to whatever is on my mind and into the heart of the story!"
