Author's Corner: Sariah Wilson


Welcome to our newest Book Blog Meme hosted by Bookworm NationKatie's Clean Book Collection and KJ's Book Nook! Once a month Author's Corner will feature either a favorite author or new to us author. We will share the author's bio, one of our favorite books of theirs and a review. Each of us will be featuring a different author each month so there will also be links to each of our posts.

We love finding and sharing amazing authors with others, we thought this would be the perfect way to share the love not only with other bookworms but with the authors that we absolutely adore! So... without further adieu...



"Sariah Wilson has never jumped out of an airplane, never climbed Mt. Everest, and is not a former CIA operative. She has, however, been madly, passionately in love with her soulmate and is a fervent believer in happily ever afters—which is why she writes romance. She grew up in southern California, graduated from Brigham Young University (go Cougars!) with a semi-useless degree in history, and is the oldest of nine (yes, nine) children. She currently lives with the aforementioned soulmate and their four children in Utah, along with three tiger barb fish, a cat named Tiger, and a recently departed hamster that is buried in the backyard (and has nothing at all to do with tigers). "

A few years ago a friend of mine recommend Sariah's YA Contemporary, The Ugly Stepsister Strikes Back to me and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it.  I enjoyed it so much I immediately added Sariah to my "authors to watch" list and was constantly checking to see when her next book was coming out. Fast forward a bit and Sariah had her book, Royal Date up on the Kindle Scout program. I of course voted for it and then eagerly awaited its release. I adored the book! Sariah was immediately moved from the Authors to Watch shelf to my Favorite Authors shelf. After just two books I realized I just clicked with her writing style, characters, plots and knew I was a fan for life. Since then, she has released a few more books and I've loved each of those as well. Sariah also writes historical fiction under Sariah S Wilson.
 
I've been lucky to get to know Sariah when we worked on a project together awhile back and she is an amazing person. Really down to earth, kind, smart and a great example. I've really enjoyed getting to know her and maybe one day I can meet her in person!
 
So, if you've never read anything by Sariah before I would recommend starting with...
 
Royal Date is the first book in the Royals of Monterra series
 (each book can technically standalone).
