I'm Sara Eatherton-Goff.

And I'm a writer, visual artist, and mom of three living with one foot in a story and the other in "real life," or whatever that's supposed to mean.

I've officially been a storyteller since childhood, coming up with elaborate tales, even before I knew how to write them down. Yes, some might call those tall tales, but let's just pretend that I was a perfect child who blossomed into a relatively sane adult who holds writing right up there with breathing on the Scale of Importance.

I wrote professionally (business stuff) for just shy of 6 years before deciding to hop onto the creative wagon. Finally, I would do what I’ve always wanted to do but kept choosing what others thought I should do with my career.

But not anymore.

I’ve put “the business to bed” and now focus my time on living and working creatively.

A few little known facts about me:

  • Former opera singer. I still sing, when I'm really happy and prepared to hear my middle child tell me I'm too loud.

  • College dropout. I saw an opportunity for gainful employment in the arena of my major sans degree and I jumped on it. No regrets.

  • I met my husband when I was pregnant with my first daughter. I fought tooth and nail to show him that we were great for each other. Two years later we were married, then came Daughter Number Two, and Number Three shortly after that... Needless to say, I convinced him well. *Insert sunglasses emoji here*

  • I have a hard time staying focused while reading fantasy novels. I can't connect with the content, and boy have I tried... But watching fantasy-like movies can be fun and enjoyable.

  • My family and I moved to Seattle to escape the Florida sun and heat (and the lack of Celiac-friendly options) in 2018. And we love everything about this gorgeous, vibrant city!

  • I have a Kindle Reader in my bathroom… That's the only way I'm able to read 1-2 books a week. (Hey, I never said I was “appropriate.”)

  • I write to live. Writing is my therapy, my connection to the world, and the only way I should communicate (since I tend to ramble and say socially inappropriate things when speaking to strangers).

Think you'd enjoy hearing from me once a week?

What am I working on now?

I'm glad you asked.

Presently I'm writing short fiction pieces for literary and online publications, and for a novel collection of stories. Be sure to…
