Introducing Sarah Stevenson, Deputy Editor

Today we meet Sarah Stevenson, Deputy Editor for the Cybils blog:

I’m a freelance writer and artist, as well as co-founder (with writer Tanita S. Davis)
of the YA literature blogs Finding Wonderland: The WritingYA Weblog and ReadingYA: Readers’ Rants, both founded in 2005. I also help out with the group blog Guys Lit Wire and participate in online literary events such as the Blog Blast Tours. I usually blog as aquafortis or a. fortis, so you might have seen me here and there around the kidlitosphere.

I was a member of the Graphic Novels Nominating Committee for the 2006 Cybil Awards and Organizer for the Graphic Novels category of the 2007 Cybils, both of which I enjoyed very much. I look forward to taking part again this year as deputy editor of the Cybils blog! I’ll also be at the upcoming kidlitosphere conference in Portland, helping with the Cybils session.

My writing has appeared in web sites and print publications including the Mills Quarterly, San Joaquin Woman,, the BBC Wales website, and I write my own young adult novels as well as blogging about YA literature, and I do a variety of freelance work in editing and desktop publishing as well. As far as artwork goes, I enjoy drawing, painting, printmaking, and artists’ books. My life is busy, but not boring!

I also enjoy travel, food (cooking and eating), music, video games, and blogging on my personal blog. My website is The Deckled Edge.
