Sara Webley is the author of the middle grade nature-fantasy series Zo the Crow, and coauthor of Somewhere Besides Denver, a young adult historical fiction novel. Sara is also an editor, poet, and photographer.
When Sara Webley was ten years old, her grandmother’s monthly magazine published Sara’s poem about a lobster . . . minus the final stanza. Not too happy with Grandma’s editing, Sara became an editor and writer herself. She has helped others do their best work through her editorial company, JAS Group Writing & Editing. Sara’s poetry has appeared in Flyway, Cold Mountain Review, and Appalachia.
Also trained as a veterinary health technician, Sara worked at Boston’s Franklin Park Zoo and New England Aquarium caring for seals, otters, porcupines, coyotes, snakes, monkeys, turtles, and other animals. Currently, she volunteers handling hawks and owls at a nature center, where she met one very special American Crow. As an author, Sara combines her love of animals with her love of books for young readers. She enjoys photographing crows and watching them gather at dusk in their roosting tree near her home.
