A hopeless bookworm and native Utahn, Sarah Bylund enjoys a variety of nerdy and not-so-nerdy pursuits such as reading, writing, collecting antique inkwells and poison bottles, prowling museums, taking photographs, cooking, traveling, and playing board games and card games. As for books, she particularly enjoys science-fiction and fantasy as well as historical romance, mysteries, and suspense/thrillers. By day, she works as a genealogy consultant, and by night she works as a freelance writer and editor. She has two master’s degrees, one in Publishing and Writing from Emerson College (Boston, MA) and one in American Literature from Brigham Young University (Provo, UT). One day she hopes to own two or three dogs. She resides in Provo, UT, and Deja Ortega: Oddsbreaker, will be her first novel.
