ABOUT SARAH NELSON
Sarah Nelson writes lyrical picture books with heart and humor. Sarah’s stories and poems explore a variety of themes, but she especially loves writing about nature, the little (oh, so real) dramas of childhood, and inspiring, lesser-known moments in American history.
Sarah is represented by Marietta B. Zacker of Gallt & Zacker Literary Agency. Her first several fiction and nonfiction picture books are forthcoming from Owlkids Books, Barefoot Books, and Candlewick Press beginning in early 2021.
Whether playful or soulful, poetry or prose, Sarah strives for humor, a sense of wonder, and that musical read-aloud-ability that makes a great picture book sing.
