The short, sweet, professional version:
Sarahbeth Caplin holds a bachelor’s of English from Kent State University and a master’s in creative writing from Colorado State University. She is the author of several books, including Confessions of a Prodigal Daughter, which was an Amazon bestseller in the “personal growth” category. Her writing has also appeared in Huffington Post, Christians For Biblical Equality, and Patheos, among other journals and magazines. Beth resides in northern Colorado with her husband and cats, where she works as a freelance writer and editor.
The fun, extended version:
I’m Sarahbeth (also known as Beth or SB). By day, I’m a freelance writer who specializes in creating newsletters and web content for various businesses, social media marketing, and editing. I have a bachelor’s degree in English literature from Kent State University, and a master’s in creative writing from Colorado State University.
I started blogging as a way of explaining to curious friends and relatives why I, a Jewish girl, suddenly started going to church (it actually wasn’t that sudden). That blog writing grew into a book, 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 23, I tell them I wrote the book I wanted to read, but simply couldn’t find. While my theology has evolved since publishing in 2012, the book nonetheless holds a special place in my heart.
Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, I now live in northern Colorado with my husband, Joshua, and our two spoiled kitties, Zoey and Catniss Everclean. A few of my favorite things: reading, freshly ground coffee, candles, thrift shopping, pretzels, the color purple, autumn, independent bookstores, making jewelry, figure skating, thunderstorms, the scent of lavender, and cold weather. Dry humor is my love language, and my puns are always intended.
