Sarah R. Yoffa is also known as “Sarah, The Webbiegrrl Writer” as well as writing under pen names. Ms. Yoffa has been writing since she was nine years old, with a vivid imagination and independent thinking. She went straight from Dr. Seuss to Nathaniel Hawthorne scoffing at all the hobbits and sandworms in between.
Sarah has been writing Science Fiction Action/Adventure aka "technothrillers" since she was 9 but in 2006 (for Nano2006!), she attempted her first Romantic Suspense novel (she finished Nano2006 on Nov 12th and began editing instead of writing more!) That book was set aside for financial reasons (read: had to go back to work) but in 2010, the Lacey / Rainey Story was revived (read trashed the 95,000 words I had and started all over again from scratch) and moved to about 70% completion--then set aside again. It seems destined for incompletion, eh? Well, that's Lacey & Rainey's story - coitus interruptus (LOL) Sarah plans to complete the Lacey / Rainey Story (at long last) and release it sometime over the summer of 2012. Only six years after its inception! Such is the life of a one-day-a-week writer.
For nano2010, Ms. Yoffa began the project of editing one chapter a week for 20 weeks, working on a Romantic Comedy / Jewish Inspirational she'd written while in Israel (1999-2003). Coming Home (Dicky's Story) was published via Smashwords in March of 2011 (see: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/29309)
In June of 2011, Ms. Yoffa reopened the Webbiegrrl blog and now publishes that via KindleBlogs (http://amzn.to/WebbiegrrlBlog) or get it free on the web (http://webbiegrrl.blogspot.com/) 4 days a week. In late July, 2011, Ms. Yoffa began editing the Phoenician Series, a Science Fiction Thriller series with a few sexy twists & turns (which is why someone mistakenly called it a romance back in 2006--it's definitely NOT a romance novel when the Hero dies a horrific death--at the hands of the heroine!) The first release is scheduled for December of 2011; hence why Sarah's NOT doing Nano2011.
Sarah is more prone to writing series but would like to learn how to master short stories, each of which will be cherished for the tiny little unique and special snowflake it is.
