Sara Farizan is the daughter of Iranian immigrants, and grew up feeling different in her private high school; not only because of her ethnicity but also because of liking girls romantically, her lack of excitement in science and math, and her love of writing plays and short stories. So she came out of the closet in college, realized math and science weren’t so bad (but not for her), and decided she wanted to be a writer. She is an MFA graduate of Lesley University and holds a BA in film and media studies from American University. Sara has been a Hollywood intern, a waitress, a comic book/record store employee, an art magazine blogger, a marketing temp, and an after-school teacher, but above all else she has always been a writer. Sara lives in San Francisco, California, but Boston, Massachusetts, will always be home. She has a cool sister, loves Kurosawa films, eighties R&B, and graphic novels, and thinks all kids are awesome.
