My name is Sarah. I live in southern Ontario, Canada with my husband and son.

I have always been a voracious reader. I taught myself to read before I was four. By the time I entered kindergarten, I was reading short novels. I quickly progressed to full novels, and have never looked back.

My favourite genres are science fiction and fantasy, but I will read most anything. I have at one point or another read almost every genre possible. I have discovered that there are a few things that I do not like to read. I prefer not to read overly graphic erotic scenes, religious preaching, or a lot of profanity. Other than that, it’s an open canvas.

If you wish to reach me for any reason, please contact me at And @Wrkreads and my site Workaday Reads.
