Sarah Hepola is the author of the bestselling Blackout and whatever she happens to write next. Her essays have appeared in the New York Times magazine, Elle, Bloomberg Businessweek, The Guardian,  Salon, and Texas Monthly, where she is a writer-at-large.

She lives in East Dallas, where she enjoys listening to the Xanadu soundtrack and playing her guitar poorly. She contributes short personal essays to NPR’s Fresh Air when she drums up the courage and is hoping to give birth to a healthy eight-hour podcast this fall. (Check back for more details.) She never knew she was a cat person until she got a cat. What might happen if she got a dragon?
