Sarah J. Sover

Sarah J. Sover uses her degree in Biology to thoroughly gross out readers of off-kilter fantasy novels. With a background in veterinary science and wildlife rehabilitation, she loves bringing creatures to life on the page, whether they be monsters or fae. Her debut novel, the comedic fantasy Double-Crossing the Bridge (2019), and its sequel, Trolled (TBD) follows a group of grog-chugging trolls intent on pulling off suicidal heists. Her Urban Fantasy Fractured Fae Series, which includes Fairy Godmurder (2022), Faed to Black (2023), and Pixie Dusted (TBD), utilizes Sarah’s science background in the creation of magical serial killers and the ex-fairy godmother who hunts them down.

Sarah also writes short fiction for anthologies, usually with a dark or humorous beat, as well as non-fiction articles for Writer’s Digest Magazine and for Dan Koboldt’s Science in Sci-fi, Fact in Fantasy blog series. Her article "Organic Worldbuilding Through Ecology" appears in his collection Putting the Fact in Fantasy.

Sarah raises two little forces of nature with her husband Alex in John’s Creek, Georgia. She can frequently be found battling through Hyrule or Hades while sipping a good IPA. She also enjoys painting and drawing, beating the yard into submission, and appearing at regional conventions.
