Occupation Writer/Mom
Location Maine, United States
Introduction S.A. Larsen is a writer, reader, and Maine-iac ice hockey fan, who has watched more hockey games than she could ever count. Books that unlock secret passageways & hidden worlds to inspire & challenge the heart are her favorite. Her debut novel for middle grade readers, Motley Education, was released October 10, 2016 by Leap Books Seek & her debut young adult novel, Marked Beauty, will be released March 28, 2017 by Ellysian Press. She’s also the author of numerous short stories, community interest pieces, & articles on young athletes written for Martial Arts Magazine. Her YA steampunk story, "Time Spun Souls," can be found in Gears of Brass (Curiosity Quills, 2014.) Look for her story sequel, "Ethereal Coil," in Under A Brass Moon (Curiosity Quills, 2016.) She's also a member of (@TheSweet16s), writing mentor for 1st Five Pages under Adventures in YA Publishing, & a co-host for the Thursday Twitter chat #mglitchat. When she’s not chasing her characters with a fire giant or dragging them through the angst of young love, she can be found in the land of lobsters & snowy winters with her husband and four children (yes, they all play hockey), a playful pooch, & two kittens.
