About Sarah

There is something magical about getting a second chance in life to learn, live, and love. I think that best describes who I am as a person, a friend, a mother, and a wife.

I have been writing ever since I learned how to hold a pencil.  As a child, I wrote a story about a family of gnomes, painstakingly handwriting each story in a blue covered journal.  When I was older, I learned how to type on an electric typewriter, spending my summers and weekends plucking at the keys until the early morning hours, much to my older sister’s chagrin.

Most of my stories focused around cultures, learning about different societies within our own.  I wrote about homeless people, gypsies, the circus, and the Amish.  It was natural that I focused on the Amish.  I was raised by a family with a rich history in Pennsylvania.  In the early 1700′s, my ancestors came over from Europe and settled in an area that grew into one of the largest Anabaptist communities in the nation. I loved diving into these cultures, studying the people and the environment in order to write about the people who lived among them.  I traveled a lot, a careful blend of Europe, South America, and the Caribbean.  When I traveled, I would escape the tourist track and immerse myself in local haunts, observing the people and writing in my journals.

Unfortunately, life happens and, during the struggles of my first marriage, the fiction writing tapered to a trickle.  But we learn from obstacles and difficulties, often finding new pieces of ourselves that we didn’t even know existed.  The good news is that once you are a writer, you are always a writer.

When I settled into my new life with my second husband, I dusted off the manuscripts and returned to the screen.  Luckily, my husband has been very supportive and helps with brainstorming, writing, and editing.  He had been crucial to the success of my publishing these works.

While publishing some of my older works such as Fields of Corn, I am also tackling new projects.  As the mother of two children, I’m publishing the short stories that I often told them during “tuck in” time.  During the day, I teach in Manhattan. I have advanced degrees in Marketing, Communication, and (soon) a PhD in Leadership. I use the name Sarah Price as an honor to my grandmother and my family, the Priess family, who came over to America in the very early 1700s aboard an old sailing vessel called the Patience.

In addition, I am beginning to speak out about my battle with breast cancer (http://www.pinkumbrellas.org) and my own experiences with being victimized and bullied, specifically with horrendous cyberbullying conducted against me and several of my friends and family by another author.

There will be many additions to my library in the upcoming months and years. I hope you enjoy the journey with me.

    Oh Pink…what a beautiful synopsis of your background. My Norweigan ancestors also migrated from Europe and settled in North Dakota and Iowa. Mom’s family migrated from Okinawa, Japan and put roots down in Hilo, Hawaii. My parents met during WWII and wed against their parents’ wishes. Then 5 daughters followed like clockwork, I being the youngest.
    I wed in 1989, after receiving my degrees and launching my career in teaching. A minor in English, it evolved into teaching writing skills and classes to grades K thru 8. I have 2 children, a boy and a girl. Though dyslexic, my daughter loves to write as well.
    Well, keep in touch Pink.

  5. Love the Plain trilogy. The spanish is misspelled quite often but absolutely love the books. I think I am one in a hundred latin girl that love amish fiction and this ones touched my heart. Can’t wait for the third one.

  6. That’s odd because I speak Spanish and also had two friends who are fluent in Spanish read it to check the Spanish…But, I’m glad you enjoyed it… <3

  8. Despite drs discovery of a lump the size of an egg yolk on her left breast………my wife is a tough cookie and we are having a church wedding on the or close date to the anniversary of our Las Vegas wedding one year ago. Fabulous reception maid of honor best man and flower girl after church vows at honolulu kahala mandarin hotel. She is in pain and could only sleep on one side especially after having surgey yesterday. It has been a battle for those who love her more than it is for her. Wish I could take her pain.

  9. Sarah, I have something special I make and would like to send you one. Do you have a P.O. Box that I can send it to? I also have a P.O. Box 1412 if you would like to just send me yours. I too have been bullied and ridiculed all my life and I have a low opinion of myself and my faith in Jesus Christ has carried me through the bad times. I am personal friends with Amanda Cabot, author where I live. She has been a bright spot in my life and a God send to me.

  10. I want to say Merry Christmas to you and yours. I was bullyed in school because I was abandoned at birth and kids teased me because I didn’t have a mom and dad. That hurt a lot at the time.
