The Same Moon — published in 2020 by Camphor Press — is my memoir of running far, far away — to Japan — to find my way home. You also can find some of my essays here and blog here.

The image from the cover of my memoir offers a quiet message of unity:

The same moon shines over us all.

Now available on shirts, bags, greeting cards and more.


As I seek wholeness in middle age, back in my Minnesota hometown, I share thoughts on:

  • faith
  • parenting
  • writing
  • yoga / running / skijoring
  • food and recipes

What people are saying

Sarah is not only a brilliant, thoughtful writer, but she’s an inspiring teacher and coach for others who want to write their life stories.

As a gift to myself in 2021 I signed up for Memoir Moments with Sarah. With her winsome, encouraging and expert way, Sarah helped unlock my inner storyteller through these 4 short weeks. Now my children get to know me in fresh and unique ways through these moments. Double blessing!

Sharon, Camas, Washington

Join me at “Loon Landing,” a monthly (sometimes bimonthly) e-newsletter, where I share writing prompts and encouragement to women writing and living fully in the middle of life and beyond.


  • writing tips & prompts
  • recommended reads
  • links to my blog posts about life in Minnesota, memories of Japan, family, food and recipes, faith and the quest for wellness.

Formerly called “The Same Loon” — feel free to check out the archive.


Sarah brings a quarter century of writing/communication experience to every project, drawing on a background in public relations, journalism, creative writing and science writing — plus degrees in biology (BA), mass communication (MA) and creative writing/nonfiction (MFA), and yoga instructor certification.
