Sarah Darer Littman, writer, mother, and unpaid chauffeur, is a living example of the cliche, "Life Begins at 40." After spending much of her adult life doing things she didn't really plan to, including such diverse occupations as financial analyst and farmer's wife, she has at long last found her true calling as a writer. Her first novel, CONFESSIONS OF A CLOSET CATHOLIC won the 2006 Sydney Taylor Book Award. She is also the author of PURGE, LIFE, AFTER (coming July 2010) and WANT TO GO PRIVATE? (coming JULY 2011) from Scholastic Press.
