Get to Know the Author: Sarah Lampkin

Happy Wednesday, Writing Desk Readers!

In preparation for this Friday's (02/01/2019) author interview, I thought we'd take the opportunity to get to know Sarah Lampkin a little better.

Sarah's debut novel, To Dream is to Die, was released by The Parliament House Press on January 8, 2019. Has anyone read, or started reading, this one yet? If so, let me know what you think!


Author Bio:

A native of Richmond, Virginia, Sarah Lampkin is a 2015 graduate from Lynchburg College [University of Lynchburg] with a master’s degree in English. Since graduation, Sarah moved to Northern Virginia to work in the IT field as a Technical Writer while continuing her research for her graduate school thesis. When she isn’t working, Sarah continues her Celtic mythology research and Gaelic studies, while working on the Dead Dreamer series.Although she currently lives in Northern Virginia, Sarah frequently travels back home to Richmond to visit family, friends, and her godchildren. During the winter months, she is in Richmond more frequently to spend time in the woods hunting and contemplating the meaning of life. She doesn’t always succeed in both endeavors, but the music of nature is worth it for peace of mind.In her free time, she likes to play RPG video games, and preparing for hunting season. To make sure she can make the most out of her day, she wakes up at 3:45am every morning to work on her fitness, so in the evening she has time to continue writing. Her passion for writing has been around since high school where she wrote her first short story. It continued as she worked towards her bachelor’s degree, and that is where the Dead Dreamer series began. Her work mainly focuses on Celtic themes, mixed with elements from the spiritual world. And her characters always have a flair of attitude and sarcasm because writing damsels in distress is something she just can’t do.
