About the Author
Sara Crocoll Smith (she/her) is the author of the ghostly gothic horror series Hopeful Horror, which includes her debut novel The Haunting of Orchard Hill. She’s also the award-winning editor of the Love Letters to Poe anthologies and creator of the Love Letters to Poe website, a haven to celebrate the works of Edgar Allan Poe.
Sara enjoys exploring the depths of the human psyche in her fiction. She’s drawn to horror that serves as a catharsis, facing and overcoming the Big Bad. She experiments with horror that is not confined to darkness, and you can often find sunlight and nature in her rich, atmospheric works.
When she writes, she’s often accompanied by her cranky, old Pomeranian curled at her feet. Sara spends her free time with her husband and son.
