Sarah East is a busy working mother, with two daughters. She runs her own graphic and interior design business and lives on the Central Coast in New South Wales, Australia.
Sarah’s life-long love of children’s literature, particularly picture books, has only deepened since having her own children. Her collection of children’s books is vast, but Sarah’s personal favourites have always been stories that hold deeper learning for children and young adults alike. Most inspiring to her have been stories that encourage a child’s individual discovery of themselves, and the world around them – those empowering them to value and trust in the gifts they have been born with, to share with the world. When her own children were young, Sarah found some of the most meaningful ways to help her daughters navigate difficult and sometimes scary subjects was through the familiar and comforting ritual of story-telling. Though her own children are now teenagers, Sarah’s passion for children's literature has not diminished and she continues to write short stories she hopes that perhaps, one day, her daughters will read to their own children.
