About Sarina

Sarina Langer | Fantasy Author, Fiction Editor, & Self-Publishing Mentor

Sarina Langer is an epic fantasy author. Her debut novel, Rise of the Sparrows, was released in late May 2016. Its conclusion, Blood of the Dragon, is currently with her critique partners as she’s working on Books 2 and 3 in the Blood Wisp novella trilogy.

She’s as obsessed with books and stationery now as she was as a child, when she drowned her box of colour pencils in water so they wouldn’t die and scribbled her first stories on corridor walls.

(‘A first sign of things to come’, according to her mother. ‘Normal toddler behaviour’, according to Sarina.)

In her free time she reads whatever her tbr jar coughs up next, plays video games, and researches the darker side of humanity and the end of the universe.

She has a weakness for books on writing and pretty words. (Specificity, anyone? Or perhaps nebulous?)

Sarina lives with her partner and daughter (read: their cat) in the south of England.

When she’s not helping you achieve your own indie author dreams, she’s self-publishing her books on her author website.
