PhotobucketSarah Callender lives in Seattle with her husband and two children. She also has two cats, one with a weight problem, the other with anxiety issues.

While her first novel, BETWEEN THE SUN AND THE ORANGES, is out on submission, she is working on her second novel, TEN MINUTES WITH BIRDS, as well as a series of children’s picture books about Ricardo and Veronica, two snails who, in spite of vastly different world views, are the best of friends.

A terrible house-cleaner, Sarah is a lover of chocolate and musicals, and a total cheapskate. She goes to church because she feels better when she remembers she doesn’t have to be In Charge of Everything. She also appreciates that God reminds her to be kinder and more patient than she is naturally. In addition to believing in God, Sarah believes in recycling and wearing sunscreen every day, year-round. She loves big hats. She loves 5:00 p.m. (wine, usually Riesling) and 7:00 p.m. (the hour at which it is socially acceptable to get in her pajamas). She loves books, but only certain kinds of books. Good books, for example. She does not abide slimy foods like custard and fried eggs, nor does she believe six-year-old tee-ballers need trophies.
