... AND THE LONG BIO
Sarah Enni writes young adult books, and is the creator and host of the First Draft podcast. She was born in Seattle, and has lived all over the continental U.S., eventually landing in Los Angeles, where she lives now with her cat, Hammer.
Sarah has been writing--zines, fake newspapers, yearbook copy, English essays, original astrology signs--since forever. Her first job out of college was reporting on radioactive waste for a trade publication.
The First Draft podcast came along because she was tired of listening to endless interviews with comedians (though she still loves listening to those), and figured her friends were just as interesting. Armed with a mic and a destination, Sarah hit the road on an epic, 6,600-mile cross-country road trip in 2014, gathering more than 60 interviews. She eventually arrived in Los Angeles but decided the project was far from done. The podcast now has more than 200 episodes, and has been downloaded more than 200,000 times. And she hopes it's just the beginning.
