Hi there!

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. I now make my home among the endless cornfields of Indiana with my husband where I raise children and turkeys. I write books in the genres of: dystopia (BLACK TIGER trilogy), science fiction (THE VANISHING SPARK OF DUSK), and am just now dipping my toes into fantasy. When not elbow deep in a story world, I can be found gardening, photographing nature, or drinking some variation of lavender tea.

The Vanishing Spark of Dusk

TVSoD_Final CoverStand up.
When Lark is stolen from Earth to be a slave on the planet Tavdora, she’s determined to find her way back home to her family, no matter the cost. Placed in the household of a notorious slave trader, Lark quickly learns her best assets are her eyes and ears. And if she’s brave enough, her voice.

Be heard.

Kalen is the Tavdorian son of a slave trader and in line to inherit his father’s business. But his growing feelings for Lark, the new house slave who dares to speak of freedom, compel him to reveal his new plan for the slave ships returning to Earth—escape. Together, they just might spark a change that flares across the universe.

Fight back.
