Hi! I’m Sarahbeth (Beth/SB) — author, editor, and freelance writer. I grew up wanting to write young adult fiction, but later discovered that my passion is for nonfiction — specifically, writing about my journey as an Episcopalian with a cultural and ethnic Jewish identity. You can read a synopsis of that story here (or just buy my book!).
In 2012, I self-published a memoir, Confessions of a Prodigal Daughter, which was an Amazon bestseller in the “personal growth” category. In addition to publishing several other books, my writing has since been featured in Huffington Post, The Sun Magazine, Sojourners, Lilith, and Christians for Biblical Equality, among other places.
Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, I live in northern Colorado with my husband, Joshua, and our fur kids, Zoey and Catniss Everclean (follow me on Instagram if you love adorable cat pictures). 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, independent bookstores, making jewelry, figure skating, pretzels, thrift shopping, and cold weather. I also love helping new authors find their target audience and learn effective marketing skills (learn more on my contact page). I’m an INFJ on the Myer’s Briggs personality scale and a 6 on the Enneagram. Dry humor is my love language, and no pun is beneath me.
