Sara Nickerson lived in several different areas of the Pacific Northwest until 4th grade, when her family settled in Olympia, Washington. There, on an eight-acre parcel of land, she and her four brothers built rafts, dug holes, explored the surrounding forest, and helped maintain the small family farm.
She studied journalism and creative writing at Washington State University. After graduation she moved to Seattle and began her writing career, working in television and film. She wrote a screenplay that would become her first middle-grade novel: How To Disappear Completely and Never Be Found (HarperCollins, 2002). She is also the author of The Secrets of Blueberries, Brothers, Moose & Me (Dutton, 2015) and Last Meeting of the Gorilla Club (Dutton, 2019).
