Sarah T. Dubb

Writer, parent, librarian, activist

I've always loved writing, but for many years I wrote non-fiction, both for work and for fun. Like many people, the pandemic found me looking for new ways to find joy in my life. Enter romance novels! Reading romance gave me a break from anxiety spirals while making me laugh, cry, swoon, and just forget about the world for a while. After devouring every romance in sight (with a particular weakness for historical romance), I decided to try my hand at writing. Several months later, I thought my manuscript was complete. That's when the real learning started!

 

I am proud to work as a public librarian, where I get to do everything from helping patrons apply for jobs to telling anyone who will listen about the Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief musical (it is SO good). I discovered romance novels while in library graduate school, and my journey as a writer is directly linked to my journey as a librarian.

When I'm not writing, reading, watching birds in my yard, or helping folks find their next great romantasy to read (try A Taste of Gold and Iron!), I'm living life in southern Arizona with my family (a great spouse, three kids, and lots of critters). I am also heavily engaged in activism around issues of reproductive justice and abortion access.

You can read more of my musings on the Musings section of my website (aptly named!), find me posting and chatting on Instagram, and see some of my silliness on Tiktok

 

My debut novel, BIRDING WITH BENEFITS, will be published by Gallery Books in 2024. 

I am represented by Amy Giufridda at Belcastro Literary Agency. 

My work

I write contemporary romance with heart and heat focusing on people experiencing the fullness of mid-life (30s and 40s). My romances are sex positive and consent-driven, with happy endings designed to help all of my characters expand their notions of who they are and who they can be.

 

I use my fiction as a way to write love letters to places, people, and things that I love: the desert southwest, birdsong in blue skies, warm boulders, the sound of a baseball landing in a glove, a summer storm, a gooey cinnamon role, a devoted parent, a soaring bird, a snappy best friend, the softness of the page of a well-loved book, and much more.
