S.A. Larsen is a writer, reader, and Maine-iac ice hockey fan, who has watched more hockey games than she could ever count. She loves books that unlock secret passageways and hidden worlds to inspire and challenge the heart. Her debut novel in her series for middle grade readers, Motley Education, was released October 10, 2016 by Leap Books Seek and her debut young adult novel, Marked Beauty, will be released March 28, 2017 by Ellysian Press. She’s also the author of numerous short stories, community interest pieces found in local publications, and articles on young athletes written for Martial Arts Magazine. Her young adult steampunk story, "Time Spun Souls," can be found in Gears of Brass released by Curiosity Quills, 2014. Look for her story sequel, "Ethereal Coil," in Under A Brass Moon, released by Curiosity Quills, 2016. She's also a member of The Sweet Sixteens (@TheSweet16s), writing mentor for 1st Five Pages under Adventures in YA Publishing, and a co-host for the Thursday Twitter chat #mglitchat. When she’s not chasing her characters with a fire giant or dragging them through the angst of young love, she can be found in the land of lobsters and snowy winters with her husband and four children (yes, they all play hockey), a playful pooch, and two kittens.
