Introduction As a little girl, S.A. Larsen believed her closet held secret passageways to magical worlds brimming with all sorts of creepy creatures – her favorite kind. Sheri never did find a ghoul or a goblin in her closet, only a half-eaten fluffernutter that her brother repurposed as a hockey puck. Her debut award-winning middle grade novel MOTLEY EDUCATION (Leap Books, 2016) is the first book in this fantasy-adventure series. It was named the New England Book Festival Best Children's Novel of 2016 and received a Bronze Award for Best Juvenile/YA Fiction, 2017 Feathered Quill Book Awards. She’s written young adult stories, community interest newspaper pieces, youth athlete magazine articles, and MARKED BEAUTY her debut YA novel, releasing Fall 2017. She's also a @MixedUpFiles contributor, #MGLitchat co-host, @TheSweet16s member, and writing mentor for First Five Pages under Adventures in YA Publishing. When she’s not chasing her characters around a cemetery or antagonizing them with the wonders of young love, she can be found in the land of lobsters and snowy winters with her husband and four children (yes, they all play hockey), a playful pooch, and three kittens.
