Sara Rishforth grew up in South Carolina and spent eight years in Alaska, where she relied on lattes, nachos, and her circle of friends to survive the long winters. Having lucked out on the dating lottery, Sara retired from the scene and now lives in Bend, Oregon with her husband and their fuzzy cats, Cheddar and Poppyseed.

When not stealing quarters from her husband’s drawer to fund her latte habit, Sara tests recipes, watches Top Chef, plays ukulele and guitar, or gabs on the phone with her mother.


She is also a winner of the 2013 Central Oregon Writers Guild Literary Harvest for a memoir submission about her grandfather and their special bond.
