As a Screenwriter, Sara writes "Faith-based" with an edgy, R-rated angle that does not shy away from the truth behind our brokenness and the depths to which we can fall when we have been tested to our breaking point... For it is here where the best stories of faith, transformation and resilience truly begin.

Through her unique lens of rich experience and hard won insight, combined with her passion for story and a razor sharp intuition; her raw, real and redemptive stories emphasize the beauty and complexity of human vulnerability, delve deep into the heart of trauma and pain and echo the truth that life's greatest challenges often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny.
