I began my self-publishing career in 2010 and have sold over three-quarters of a million book. I write mostly magical, contemporary fantasy novels with both teen and college-aged characters (and lots of twists you’ll never see coming). The exception is my Fairhope series, my only new adult contemporary romance series. I pull a lot of my inspiration for most of my books from my own love of Tarot, crystals, manifestation and all things witchy. Needless to say, I love Halloween!
I grew up in the small town of Hawkinsville, Georgia in a log house that my dad built out in the middle of over 10 acres of dense woods. We didn’t have any air conditioning, and in the heat of summer in Georgia, it was often cooler to be in the woods than in the house. I have no doubt growing up here and roaming the forest as a child is what caused me to have such a vivid imagination.
I dabbled in a couple of careers that, in the end, didn’t fit the vision I had for myself; it wasn’t until I decided to follow a life-long dream of writing that I truly found where I belonged in the world. Suddenly, I was transported back to those days when I was allowed to make up entire worlds in the woods behind my house. Deciding to become a writer at thirty years old was like finding myself after being lost for so many years. I never looked back.
It took me years to learn how to actually write a novel, but all that work was worth it. Now, I indulge in my passion for planner supplies, Post-It notes, and stories as I plot each novel and immerse myself in the worlds I’ve created. Here’s a quick behind-the-scenes peek at one of my plotting walls! If you’ve not read any of my books and are interested, you can find tons of information on my Sarra Cannon website here.
Something else I hope you know about me by now is that I’m passionate about helping writers like you create and achieve your dream life. As a result, Heart Breathings was born. Since 2018, I’ve developed two courses, Publish & Thrive and HB90 Bootcamp, in hopes to give back to the community that had been supporting me for almost a decade.
