Sarah Lariviere

As a social worker for children and families in New York City, Sarah always loved listening to people tell too-crazy-to-believe life stories. But Sarah's grandmother, whose name was also Sarah, kept telling her that she was the storyteller. As usual, Grandma Sarah was right. Sarah's first middle grade novel, tentatively titled The Bad Kid, will be published by Simon & Schuster in summer 2016.

Sarah currently lives between Austin, Texas and Paris, France with her husband Tim, baby son Laszlo and step-daughter Adèle.
