Before Sarah Styf turned eighteen, she was moved across the country four times, living in five states in four different time zones before she left her parents’ home in Michigan for four years of college in Nebraska. As an adult, she and her husband started their family in Indiana, then chose to spend six years in Southeast Texas, before a significant life-changing event sent them back to the Midwest.
After nearly a decade of blogging, Sarah noticed a common theme throughout her writing: life is a series of unexpected events, a blind journey through the challenges of being a human, raising children, maintaining a career, and getting older. In her first book, she processes her own journey of leaning into the unexpected and learning how to build a home when everything blows up in your face.
Sarah Styf lives just outside of Indianapolis with her husband, two children, two dogs, and, now, two axolotls. When she isn’t teaching high school English, she enjoys camping with her family, running and biking for recreation, reading, and writing.
