I’m Sarahbeth (friends and family know me as Beth or SB). I’m an author of several books, including Confessions of a Prodigal Daughter, which was an Amazon bestseller in the “personal growth” category. When people ask me why I felt the need to publish a memoir at the weary age of 22, I tell them I wrote the book I wanted to read, but simply couldn’t find (although Lauren Winner’s Girl Meets God comes close).
My writing has been featured in Huffington Post, The Sun Magazine, Sojourners, Lilith, and Christians for Biblical Equality, among other places. While my day job is working from home as a freelance writer and editor, I 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, thunderstorms, striped sweaters, 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.
