Sarah Hepola is the author of the bestselling Blackout and the upcoming Unattached. Her essays have appeared in the New York Times magazine, Texas Monthly, Elle, Bloomberg Businessweek, The Guardian, Slate, and Salon, where she was a longtime editor.
She lives in East Dallas, where she enjoys playing her guitar poorly and listening to orchestral pop that lends itself to multiple harmonies. She contributes short personal essays to NPR’s Fresh Air whenever she drums up the courage and hopes one day to give birth to a healthy eight-hour podcast. She never knew she was a cat person until she got a cat.
