Sarah Reida was born and raised in the Midwest, where she read anything and everything she could get her hands on – especially scary books, like R.L. Stine’s and Roald Dahl’s. Also, movies played a huge role in her development – sitting on a cinder block at the local drive-in to watch Beetlejuice was a formative event.
Sarah always knew she wanted to be a writer, but also knew that she’d have to change her name because no one can spell or pronounce it (Schauerte, or Shower-Tee). Luckily, her husband’s last name is easy to pronounce, so she didn’t have to worry about coming up with a pen name!
Now an Atlanta resident, Sarah lives with her husband, Scott, and their furry children (and daughter – coming soon!). She works as an attorney who helps veteran small business owners who work with the federal government.
