My name is Sara Baysinger and I write books. I was born in the heart of the Andes Mountains in Ecuador where I spent my early life exploring uncharted lands on horseback and raising chickens. I now make my home among the endless cornfields of Indiana with my husband where I raise children instead of chickens. I write YA books in the genres of: dystopia (BLACK TIGER trilogy), science fiction (THE VANISHING SPARK OF DUSK), and am just now dipping my toes into epic fantasy. When not elbow deep in a story world, I can be found gardening, photographing nature, or drinking some variation of lavender tea.
