Growing up in rural America, Sarah Bull loved spending her time outdoors dreaming up fictional worlds and characters. It wasn’t until she took a writing course at her undergraduate institution that she realized she had two dreams: writing her own stories and helping others tell theirs. She began writing articles for a regional magazine and after a short time teaching in K-12 schools, decided to pursue her writing dream more fervently. She attended Binghamton University where she wrote her first YA novel and got her MA and PhD in English with a creative writing emphasis. After graduation, Sarah moved outside of Los Angeles to teach first-year college writing. While living in California, Sarah developed a passion for screenwriting and began writing her own scripts. In addition to teaching, she started working for a production company in Los Angeles, gaining producer credits for shows aired on Discovery and Science Channel. Sarah now teaches first-year writing as well as courses on YA literature, screenwriting, and podcast production.
