Meet Grim Reaper #2497. Behind

About the AuthorSarah McKnight has been writing stories since she could pick up a pencil, and it often got her in trouble during math class. After a brief stint teaching English to unruly middle schoolers in Japan, she decided she wasn’t going to put off her dream of becoming a writer any longer and set to work.
With several novels in the
making, she hopes to tackle issues such as anxiety, depression, and letting go
of the past - with a little humor sprinkled in, too. A St. Louis native, she
currently lives in Pennsylvania with her wonderful husband and three cats.
