Sarah Beth Durst
Sarah Beth Durst is the award-winning author of fourteen fantasy books for adults, teens, and kids,
including Drink Slay Love, the basis for the recent TV movie of the same name.
Her latest book for adults, The Reluctant Queen, came out in July 2017 from Harper Voyager;
her latest book for kids, Journey Across the Hidden Islands, came out in April 2017 from HMH/Clarion Books;
and her first picture book, Roar and Sparkles Go to School, came out in June 2017 from Hachette/Running Press Kids.
Sarah won an ALA Alex Award and a Mythopoeic Fantasy Award, and has been a finalist for SFWA's Andre Norton Award three times.
Sarah was born in Northboro, Massachusetts, a small town that later became the setting for her debut novel.
At the age of ten, she decided she wanted to be a writer. (Before that, she wanted to be Wonder Woman, except with real
flying ability instead of an invisible jet. She also would have accepted a career as a unicorn princess.) And she began writing fantasy stories.
She attended Princeton University, where she spent four years studying English, writing about dragons, and wondering what
the campus gargoyles would say if they could talk. Sarah lives in Stony Brook, New York, with her husband, her children, and her ill-mannered cat.
