Sarah publishes her chapbook: Windows and Mirrors.

Windows and Mirrors, Sarah’s book of poetry, is now available on Amazon! Sarah describes it as: “This is a poetry book includes 25 poems split into two sections: windows and mirrors. Window poems are about others while mirror poems are about my own life. The first poem of each collection has a QR code in the corner. When scanned, the QR code will pull up a video of me performing the piece. I hope it brings it to life and shows all the emotions that went into this portfolio. This book is perfect for anyone who enjoys poetry: both happy, sad, and every emotion in between. I hope it is a window into the world and mirror of mine.”

One ruby-red, spiral-bound notebook. One vivid imagination.

In the hands of a fifth grader, these seem like perfect tools for idle time. And for Sarah Frank, they proved to be just that — a creative outlet. While squirreled away in her bedroom, she embarked on writing a “story” about orphans and magic, escalating adventures and time travel, never intending to share her writings with anyone.

Then she added a, “purple Sharpie” to the mix. And everything changed.

“Somewhere in the middle — maybe just after I ended a chapter with a character saying, ‘We only have one chance’ — I realized I liked the sound of those last two words and I decided to make One Chance the title,” said Sarah, now a rising sophomore at Blake High School. “Once I wrote the title in this thick purple Sharpie (which definitely didn’t match the ruby red) on the cover, it started to feel real.

“It was at that point that I knew I wanted to take it to the next level and publish it — to share my story and my characters with the world.”

More than four years after that epiphany, Sarah peddles her first novel, One Chance, published last November by BeaLu Books.

While working on a 10-book series — the next installment will be Two Secrets — Sarah is accepting accolades. [Read more…]
