About the Author
Sara Saedi was born in Tehran, Iran, smack-dab in the middle of a war and an Islamic Revolution. As the story goes, she entered the world to the sounds of bombs exploding near the hospital. Though her memory of the day is a little fuzzy, the life and death stakes surrounding her birth helped prepare her for a writing career. Sara received a BA in Film and Mass Communications from the University of California, Berkeley, and began her career as a creative executive for ABC Daytime. In 2010, she left the company to pursue her dream of being a writer. She’s since penned three TV movies for ABC Family, won a Daytime Emmy for What If…, a web series she wrote for ABC, and worked as a staff writer on the FOX sitcom The Goodwin Games. Most recently, she wrote a pilot for the Disney Channel. She currently resides in Los Angeles with her husband and her pug, Mabel.
