As a little girl, S.A. Larsen believed her closet held secret passageways to magical worlds brimming with all sorts of creepy creatures – her favorite kind.
Sheri never did find a ghoul or a goblin in her closet, only a half-eaten fluffernutter that her brother repurposed as a hockey puck. Her debut middle grade novel Motley Education (Leap Books, 2016) is the first book in a fantasy-adventure series. It was named the New England Book Festival Best Children’s vel of 2016 and received a Bronze Award for Best Juvenile/YA Fiction, 2017 Feathered Quill Book Awards.
She’s written young adult stories, community interest newspaper pieces, and youth athlete magazine articles. Marked Beauty is her debut YA novel, releasing by Ellysian Press; Summer/Fall 2017. She’s also a @MixedUpFiles contributor, #MGLitchat co-host, @TheSweet16s member, and writing mentor for First Five Pages under Adventures in YA Publishing.
When she’s not chasing her characters around a cemetery or antagonizing them with the wonders of young love, she can be found in the land of lobsters and snowy winters with her husband and four children (yes, they all play hockey), a playful pooch, and three kittens.
