About Sarah Tormey

After several years on the other side of the publishing industry, Sarah Pucillo Tormey bid goodbye to her career as a mass merchandise sales representative to pursue her dream—writing romance novels.  Armed with a firm belief that dreams do come true and a passion for historical and contemporary romances, Sarah sat down at her keyboard to write a sexy, fun story like the ones she loved to read.

When she is not typing away, Sarah is usually found reading or recommending romance novels to others. She has been known to lure friends into her home with the promise of a delicious meal and send them home with a stack of mass market paperbacks.

Sarah currently resides in Brooklyn, New York with her faithful writing companion – her Burmese cat, Puma – and her very supportive real-life hero and her son. When it is Puma’s turn to write, Sarah enjoys cooking, listening to country music, and planning her next horseback riding adventure. To date, Sarah and her husband have conquered Costa Rica and the French Pyrenees mountain region on horseback and hope to add Ireland and Mongolia to their list—and perhaps a ride through Hyde Park. She is a member of Romance Writers of America, her local New York City RWA chapter and a frequent attendee at Lady Jane’s Salon, New York City’s only romance reading series.

Sarah’s experience on the other side of publishing taught her that as an author she must be ready and able to market and sell her work. Some of her unique experiences include:

• Co-hosting an author breakfast at the RWA annual conference for the mass market buyers from Levy Home Entertainment.

• Working with RWA to create an author breakfast on Librarian’s Day at the annual conference featuring bestselling romance authors.

• Positioning and selling debut mass market romance titles to Target.

• Organizing author events and signings at regional grocery store chains by working with the chain’s distributor and the store managers.

• Attending and organizing the Annual American Library Association conference in Chicago in 2005, where she helped plan and run an author event featuring Barack Obama (she now wishes she had her picture taken with him.)
