Sarah Jane Marsh is a writer of children's narrative nonfiction and author of the forthcoming THOMAS PAINE AND THE DANGEROUS WORD (Disney Hyperion, May 2018).

Sarah has taught American Revolution history in elementary and middle school. Like Thomas Paine, Sarah attempted several adventurous careers (zookeeping, dolphin training, firefighting), before earning an MBA from the University of Vermont where she studied organizational change. 

Also like Paine, Sarah believes in the importance of lifelong learning and speaking out for social change.  She works at the grassroots level with youth suicide prevention, Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) education, and meeting basic student needs in her community.

Sarah lives with her family outside of Seattle. THOMAS PAINE AND THE DANGEROUS WORD is her first book.
