I'm Sarah. I help authors and writers create marketable projects and tell compelling stories that sell.
As a best-selling and award-winning author (Penguin/Berkley Books and Candlewick Press), Producer and Senior Creative Executive in the kids and family space (Ex-Amazon, Jim Henson Company, and Mattel), and former literary agent (William Morris Endeavor), I have over 25 years experience creating, developing and representing compelling and award-winning content across the media landscape (TV/Streaming, AI-enabled devices, audio, video, video games and books).
I also have a passion for creating and developing innovative and disruptive original IP (Intellectual Property/Content) that pushes boundaries and shapes how we reach, entertain and engage with families and young audiences.
Over the course of my career, I've worked with tons of talented (and best-selling) writers and illustrators including Dav Pilkey (Captain Underpants), Nick Bruel (Bad Kitty), Ian Falconer (Olivia), and even Judy Blume (Summer Sisters), and it's been an honor to support and cheer them on as they challenged themselves, tackled new genres, and achieved amazing results!
Using my combined expertise in storytelling, structure, and sales, my goal is to help aspiring writers - and published authors - create their best work, navigate the pitch process, and sell it!*
I am an innovative, experienced, and intuitive coach and consultant with a successful track record in non-fiction books (lifestyle, parenting, mid-life, motivation, and humor), children's publishing, kids and family TV and streaming, and the building of cross-platform franchises.
So, what can I do for you? Well, here are just a few of things:
Get you writing that book, FINALLY!
Review and edit manuscripts (i.e. Picture books, Early Reader, Middle-Grade, Graphic Novels, and Non-Fiction )
Generate a game plan for your writing process and project goals.
Identify the right agents and publishers
Write a pitch letter
Prepare your work for submission
Build pitch decks
Develop and/or review materials for a TV series, feature, or special.
Maximize franchise potential
More (a lot more, actually...). Whatever you're currently doing? I can help you get to the next level.
Whatever you need to learn, whatever your challenges may be, whatever excuses you're giving yourself to not write that book, create that show, or build that App, I can help. And if I can't, I bet I know somebody who can. So don't be shy. CLICK CONTACT ME and let's get this ball rolling!
