Meet an author: Sarah Sanchez

Tell us a little about yourself and your background?  

I was born in Dallas, TX. I love Texas. The weather is crazy, but the people are friendly.  I graduated from the University of North Texas with a BA of Arts in Spanish. Mexico is my second home.  My husband is from there, and I have family down there. I love the culture, the people and of course the food.  I have three wonderful children and I love hiking and spending time outdoors when I am not writing.
Fantasy is my preferred genre to write in. There are no limits in fantasy beyond my own imagination.  Anything can happen. Sunwalker is my debut novel. It is a YA Vampire novel. The first in a trilogy. Nightwalker, book 2, is set to be released in Spring 2018.  I am also currently working on a YA Fantasy novel entitled the Portal Keeper.  No date yet on that title.


What would you say is your more iconic novel and why?

Sunwalker is my first novel so I would have to pick it.  I think it takes a new twist on the origins of vampires.


Which writers inspire you?

Brandon Mull is one of my favorite writers, I absolutely fell in love with Fablehaven.  Since then I have read almost everything he has written.  He knows how to draw a reader in and pull you out of reality for a few hours at a time.  I read his series out loud to my children, and it is just pure fun.


Have you written any other novels in collaboration with other writers?
No, I am not sure I would be able to do that.  I don’t work well with others.  I like things done a certain way and if my name was going to be on the cover I would want final say on everything.  I love people don’t get me wrong, but I don’t think I could compromise, when it comes to my writing.  I think with a partner you would have to.



When did you decide to become a writer?
Really it wasn’t until I published my first book.  Feeling that thrill of having a finished copy in my hands was exhilarating.  It has really shown me for the first time in my life what it feels like to be passionate about what I do.


Do you write full-time or part-time?
Currently I write part-time, but I hope in the future that changes.  As for now I have to keep my day job.


Do you work to an outline or plot or do you prefer just to see where an idea takes you? 
Typically, I just jump in and see where my idea takes me.  If I get a couple of good chapters out of it, then I will sit down and write out an outline and do some character development.


Do you have a strategy for finding reviewers? 

Not really.  I just ask people to review the book after they read it.  I believe at the end of the book there is even a request.  I just encourage everyone to write reviews if they enjoy a book because it benefits the author as well as other readers.

What are your thoughts on good/bad reviews?

I am all about honest reviews.  I do think if you don’t like a book there is a kind and helpful way to critique a book.  I don’t like mean and ruthless reviews.  Good reviews are great as long as they are honest.  I am not a fan of review swaps and won’t participate in them.  I don’t believe in giving someone a good review just because they are your friend or you want one in return.

How can readers discover more about you and you work?

I love to hear from readers, reach out to me in any way you see fit.
