About the Author

Sarah Sparks is the author of the Monsters on Mill Street book series.

She’s a born storyteller who's been crafting tales as long as she's been chasing adventures. As a teen, she took a leap of faith, hopping on a plane to Edinburgh with dreams of becoming a journalist and barely enough cash in her pocket for bus fare and a coffee. But that leap led to more than just memories; it kickstarted a flourishing career with Sarah's knack for narrative evolving into a booming communications business.

Outside of work, she's the mom of three vibrant kiddos, who've grown up on a steady diet of adventure tales and whimsy. Now, Sarah's sharing her stories with young readers everywhere, hoping to spark imagination and bring the wonder of childhood to life on the page.
