About Sarah Manley

Sarah is as girly as they come, but has no time for fluffy books. With a degree in English literature, Sarah has a deep appreciation for a well-written good story. Sarah loves curling up under a blanket with a latte to read a good book, but as a busy mom, she's had to become a huge fan of audiobooks. Her favourite book (and musical!) is The Color Purple by Alice Walker. When she's not reading (or listening), she can usually be found at the dog park searching for bugs with her toddler.
