Sara Walsh is British, but happily lives in Annapolis, Maryland. She graduated college with a degree in psychology, but soon decided that telling stories was much more fun. When not writing, Sara is usually reading, drowning in tea, or frolicking around town with the world’s cutest St. Bernard. The Dark Light is her first novel.

My best friend, Delane, jokes that I’m brooding and intense. It just takes time for me to trust people. My life is complicated and there’s much I can’t talk about. My world is at war, and our rebellion depends on secrecy to succeed. So, when I’m quiet, I’m quiet for a reason. But I do have a light side. Not many people know this, but I once lost a bet, and as a result, have a tattoo of a poppy somewhere on my body. I’m not going to tell you where.
As a fighter, there’s no way of knowing when I might encounter danger on the road, so I have to stay in shape. The tattoo on my back protects me from demons, but there are other enemies in my world, and I have to be ready to fight or die. I wouldn’t have things any other way. I have chosen this life. There isn’t anything I wouldn’t give up to protect my world.
It’s hard for me to find a girl, because I spend so much time on the road, and there are few who could accept my way of life. Delane says that girls want to tame me, but I have no interest in those kinds of games. So, though there have been girls in my past, I keep my distance. It’s safer that way. Less complicated. If I could find a girl who accepted me for who I am–and not who she wants me to be–I would give her everything. I have yet to meet her…
Fill in the Blank:
NOBODY KNOWS I AM: In Crownsville as part of our efforts to stop the war.
I WISH I COULD STOP: The Suzerain’s war against the Other Side. I’ll do everything I can to achieve that.
I’M A SUCKER FOR: An underdog. Nothing is so hopeless that it can’t be overcome. Never give up.
A GOOD TIME FOR ME IS: Being with my closest friends in a place where nobody knows me and where I can be myself.
NOBODY WOULD BELIEVE ME IF THEY SAW ME: Mixing with the students at Crownsville High. It’s a far cry from my life back home.
I’D REALLY RATHER: Be climbing in the mountains on a clear, crisp day with no one around me for miles.
THE FIRST THING I DO IN THE MORNING IS: Continue to fight. Every day. Until the war is over.

About this Book:
Mysterious lights have flickered above Crownsville for as long as Mia can remember. And as far as she’s concerned, that’s about the only interesting thing to happen in her small town.
That is, until Sol arrives. Mia’s not one to fall for just any guy, but she can’t get Sol–or the brilliant tattoo on his back–out of her mind.
Then Mia’s brother goes missing, and Mia’s convinced that Sol knows more than he’s sharing. But getting closer to Sol means reevaluating everything Mia once believed to be true. Because Sol’s not who Mia thought he was–and neither is she.
