Sarah Everett grew up in enchanted forests, desert islands, and inside a magical wardrobe. She speaks two Nigerian languages and a small amount of Afrikaans, and was also president of her high school's Japanese club (which was only slightly less nerdy than it sounds). She now lives in Alberta, Canada, where she moonlights as a graduate student and writes young-adult novels. She believes in chocolate, daydreaming, and good mistakes. When she's not writing, Sarah is probably nose-deep in a book, bemoaning her nonexistent sense of direction or engaging in some "car-aoke" while she tries to find her way home. Her first book was Everyone We've Been. Visit her on Twitter at @heysaraheverett.
