Sara Lynn Burnett has been chasing the sunshine ever since spending a year in Moscow for her Russian literature degree. Post-graduation from Rice University she found herself in Hawaii teaching high school by day and giving tours of the Honolulu Academy of Arts by night. Her marketing skills promoting artistic literacy at the museum were noticed and she was soon poached by Hawaii’s Tourist Board where she spearheaded a new romance travel campaign.

Following that she worked for various resorts in the Caribbean developing websites, producing video and photo shoots, and leading digital marketing efforts. When the 24-hour commute from Honolulu got to be too much Sara chose Saint Lucia in the West Indies as her new home. When not there, she lives and works in hotels up and down the Caribbean.

Sara Lynn Burnett is an avid reader and an active member of the #bookstagram community on Instagram. She is hard at work on her debut novel and her short fiction pieces have appeared in The Caribbean Writer, Disfunkshion magazine, and Plainsongs. She was the winner of Wikimedia Foundation’s 2019 Global Short Fiction Contest and was a Key West Literary Seminar 2020 Workshop Writer.
