Who is Sarah?

Hey. I'm Sarah, creator of the Girl In Space podcast. I write and produce every episode, and I'm also the voice of X.

As of writing this, I'm in my mid-30s (ignore my gray hair) and I've been a sci-fi & fantasy nerd all my life.

Why Girl In Space?

I started the Girl In Space podcast because I love sci-fi, podcasts, creative writing, and most of all, you

No, seriously. I think you're terrific!

I also wanted to show you that it's possible to start your own audio drama without the help of a big studio.

For instance, I record every episode of Girl In Space from my cramped little home office in South Dakota (!), using a Blue Yeti microphone, my laptop, a piece of audio foam some dude tore off of the wall of a Guitar Center for me, headphones, and a bunch of towels. Also one of my cats. Here's a picture of my recording setup: 

I also use Audacity, which is a free program, for all of my recording and editing.

What do you do all day?

I live in the middle of nowhere with my husband Tim and two rescue cats, Midori and Momo. When I'm not making new episodes of Girl In Space, I'm a freelance writer and editor, and sometimes I build websites and ghostwrite books for people. 

I'm also the creator of another (nonfiction) podcast, Write Now. It gives aspiring writers the time, energy, and courage you need to pursue your passion and write every day.

Things I love

I believe that the things we love influence the things we create. Here are some of the things that may have influenced Girl In Space, in no particular order:

It's good to be grateful.

I am grateful to all of those sources for inspiring me. I'm grateful to my family and my friends (which includes those of you who listen to Girl In Space), and to the amazing people at FateCrafters Studios, who helped me find my footing.
