About the Author


My name is Sarah Richards, and I am a lifelong Southern belle who will never put sugar in her grits.

I have been published in Bella Grace magazine, Writer’s Digest (https://www.writersdigest.com/whats-new/why-i-write-poetry-sarah-richards), and my story, “The Ghoul of Whitmire Cemetery” (https://sarahleastories.com/2017/07/01/saturday-evening-post-honorable-mention/), set in my hometown of Pensacola, Florida, was recognized as an Honorable Mention and published in The Saturday Evening Post’s “Great American Short Stories” anthology in 2016.

“The Post-It Poet,” set at my alma mater of Pensacola State College, placed as an Honorable Mention in the 2019 contest.

I am now an administrative assistant for a non-profit foundation and a freelance reporter for The Pensacola News Journal.  

My latest hobbies are making personalized bookmarks and Shutterfly gift books which incorporate that graphic design element.

  1. I just read your “About” and your post about non-paleo dieting. I like your writing – it flows and feels organic, not processed. I am struggling to get onto the stationary bike called Writing. I look at it — waiting in the corner — accusing.

    • Thanks! I need to get on the literal stationary bike–too much time spent on the computer. I like your pun (the use of the words processed and organic). 🙂
