Before writing books, Sarah Painter worked as a freelance magazine journalist, blogger and editor.
Sarah writes contemporary fiction with a touch of magic and her debut novel, The Language of Spells, became a Kindle bestseller.
She presents the Worried Writer podcast, has just self-published her first non-fiction book – Stop Worrying; Start Writing – and recently signed a new book deal with Lake Union.
In spite of all of those achievements, Sarah is a self-proclaimed worrier and procrastinator.
