Sarah M. Chen graduated cum laude from UCLA with a B.A. in Communications and an M.A. in Communications – TV/Film from Cal State Fullerton. After that she did exactly what her parents did not want her to do: work a series of part-time jobs ranging from studio script reader to bartender. She continues this trend today as a transcriber and private investigator assistant.
Sarah has published over 30 short stories and doesn’t see herself quitting the short story format anytime soon. She also wrote a children’s chapter book set in Taiwan called Superbeetle. Currently, she’s revising her YA thriller that will be ready to query soon!
