Sarah J. Smolen has been bottling her own brand of sass since 1987. The youngest of four children and the only girl, she aspired to be a pony in the style of My Little Pony. When the harsh realities of life set in, her aspirations refocused on writing and teaching. Today, she is a teacher on hiatus, rookie mom, aspiring craftitian, and wannabe pastry chef. She and her husband, Christopher, have been married since October 2012 and have one son, Solomon. Her father still calls her “Princess”.
