My Story

Sarah Natale is the author of debut book, The Kiss of Death, which was actually an assignment in her senior creative writing class. She has always had a fascination for the tragedy that devastated 1/3 of Europe’s population and was excited to craft a story around the historical event. Far from the short story requirement, The Kiss of Death demonstrated writing skills akin to a professional author and launched her writing career. The Kiss of Death was awarded the 2014 Helen Wright Scholarship in creative writing.

Sarah has been called an L.A. Gal (Language Arts Girl) due to her passion for words ever since she could hold a pencil. An entire shelf of notebooks populates her bookshelf, spilling into the second shelf. She loves reading, writing, figure skating, and playing classical piano. She can be found surrounded by books, open notebook, pen in hand. Sarah Natale, literally translated, means the Princess of Christmas.

Sarah is pursuing a double major in Creative Writing and Public Relations at Drake University. She is from the suburbs of Chicago where she is at work on her next book.
