About

Sarah Lynne John is a collector of life experiences. A few items in her collection include:

  • sky-diving over Hawaii,
  • sampling escargot in Paris,
  • cliff jumping in Utah,
  • paragliding over the Alps,
  • and even braving fruitcake in Siberia.

When she can’t travel to a new thrilling adventure, she does so vicariously through her characters on the page. Along with a rush of adrenaline, her work often explores science, the beauty of the natural world, and family relationships.

Before turning to writing for children, Sarah’s many careers involved writing news stories, producing technical videos, designing print and digital media, shooting tourism photography, lobbying state legislators for film incentives, planning swanky events, and schmoozing film and commercial executives.
