Get a sneak peak at what a typical day looks like for a writer with Sarah Sundin! Keep reading to get the scoop, and be sure to check out her latest release, Anchor in the Storm.


7:00—tall cup of coffee and a bagel. My alarm goes off at 6:00, but I’ll spare you the “before” pictures. I’m so not a morning person.

7:15—hit the internet. First thing in the morning, I take care of emails, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. From my blog, I post my daily “Today in World War II History” tidbit—plus today I’m featuring my friend Lisa Bogart’s gorgeous coloring book devotional, Drawn from the Heart.

8:00—my desk buddy, Janie, checks out the rose bushes for little birdies.

10:00—off to the post office to mail bookmarks to readers. This is my apologetic face to the people behind me in line.

11:00—updating a Powerpoint for a speaking event on Wednesday at the local… read more »

The Story Behind ‘Dawn at Emberwilde’

June 15th, 2016

Dawn at Emberwilde

Maya Angelou once said, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” Where does a writer find inspiration? What does a typical writing day look like? We asked Sarah Ladd to tell us the story behind Dawn at Emberwilde Plus, listen to her regency-inspired playlist here!


Tell us a bit about the story behind your latest novel. Where did you find inspiration?
