• Sarah Aronson did not always want to become a writer. Her first choices: an actress or a punter for the NFL. When those choices did not pan out, she worked as a personal trainer, physical therapist, school principal, and bookseller. Eventually, she discovered books. And she will never change her mind again!

    Sarah holds an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts. She was awarded a work in progress grant from SCBWI in 2004.

    She has published three stand alone novels, Head Case, Beyond Lucky, and Believe, as well as the The Wish List Series and the picture book biography, Just Like Rube Goldberg, illustrated by Robert Neubecker.

    Sarah loves working with aspiring writers at The Highlights Foundation. Currently, she teaches The Whole Novel as well as Getting to know your Novel, a course of study that starts online and ends with a retreat. 

    When she’s not writing, she enjoys cooking, hiking, biking, watching sports, and practicing yoga!
