Hi there!

My name is Sara Baysinger (They/Them). I was born as a missionary kid in the heart of Ecuador where I spent my early life exploring our corner of the Andes Mountains on horseback. I now make my home among the endless cornfields of Indiana with my husband and two kids, two dogs, two cats, and two turkeys. I write YA books in the genres of: dystopia, science fiction, and fantasy. When not elbow deep in a story world, I can be found creating art that explores the intersection of nature and the queer experience, photographing nature, or drinking some variation of lavender tea while admiring the sunset.

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.

When the fire goes out, supposedly dead, the embers still remain, tiny specks of deadwood and ash that have the capacity to start a fire large enough to burn down an entire city. 

Ember Carter is a 16-year-old farmer’s daughter who wants nothing more than to stay close to her family in the Community Garden when Career Day approaches. Unfortunately, all farming careers are given to boys, and besides, as of the past two years, all students have been drafted to the Line of Defenders to fight in a war no one seems to know about. When Ember meets Forest, the mysterious stranger who seems to know a bit too much about city life and the way the government is run, she’s even less eager to leave the safe haven of the Garden. 

On Career Day, the future couldn’t look brighter when Ember is the only student assigned the career of a farmer. But all hopes come to end when she attacks a Defender to save her best friend. Suspected a rebel and sentenced to death, she’s transferred to Frankfort Prison where she will carry out her sentence. But Frankfort is full of surprises and snotty Patricians. While in prison, Ember learns a dark secret about Forest that makes her question what little she knew about him. And then there’s Rain, the carelessly handsome boy who enjoys instigating her just a bit too much. If that’s not enough, the world learns something about Ember even she doesn’t know. A secret that brings her character into question, enlightens her on her mother’s true identity, and ultimately, gives her the power to affect the rise or fall of Ky. 

With the handsome Forest tugging at her heart, and the rogue Rain whispering treasons into her ear, can Ember make the right decision that will redeem the corrupt government of Ky?
