About SB


I’m Sarahbeth (friends and family know me as Beth or SB), and I’ve been writing since I first held a crayon. This blog chronicles my journey as an Anglican with a cultural and ethnic Jewish identity. The full backstory of how that happened is in my memoir, Confessions of a Prodigal Daughter, which was an Amazon bestseller in the “personal growth” category.

In addition to publishing other books, my writing has been featured in Huffington Post, The Sun Magazine, Sojourners, Lilith, and Christians for Biblical Equality, among other places. My day job is working from home as a freelance writer and editor, but I’ll always describe myself as an author first.

Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, I now live in northern Colorado with my husband, Joshua, and our two spoiled kitties, Zoey and Catniss Everclean. I have a bachelor’s degree in English from Kent State University, spent a year at Denver Seminary studying biblical counseling, and later earned a master’s in creative writing from Colorado State University.

A few of my favorite things: freshly ground coffee, candles, thrift shopping, pretzels, autumn, independent bookstores, making jewelry, figure skating, talking about theology, supporting local artists, the scent of lavender, and cold weather. I’m an INFJ on the Myer’s Briggs personality scale and an Enneagram 6. Dry humor is my love language, and my puns are always intended.
