About

Well, I guess I’ll start with my official bio:

Sara Davison holds a degree in English Literature from Queen’s University. She has written a monthly column for a major newspaper in her city, and is a copy-editor for an on-line publishing company. Her first novel, The Watcher, was the winner in the Word Alive Publishing contest in 2010, and will be released in April 2011. Davison has been a finalist for two national writing awards through The Word Guild; in 2008, for The Best New Canadian Christian Author, and in 2010, for Best Column – Single.

Davison lives in Orillia, Ontario, with her husband Michael and their three children.

Since that’s a little dry and formal, I’ll also add a few “favourite things” just to liven things up a bit:

Favourite books – The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley, Redeeming Love and The Scarlet Thread by Francine Rivers, The Novelist by Angela Hunt, and Horton Hatches an Egg by Dr. Seuss (yes, really – have you read that book??? It gets me every time!)

Favourite Authors – Oddly enough, Susanna Kearsley, Francine Rivers, Angela Hunt, amd Kristen Heitzmann

Favourite Movies – Anything with Jimmy Stewart, the greatest actor of all time, but especially Harvey and It’s a Wonderful Life. Oh and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and Made for Each Other, and The Shop Around the Corner, and …  I also love Roman Holiday, An Affair to Remember, Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium (which one of these is not like the other ones …), Nanny McPhee, Enchanted, Tangled (yep, three young kids – can you tell?) Shakespeare in Love, Pride and Prejudice of course, short and long version, although the long is better, Sense and Sensibility … and lots more, I’m a bit of a movie-phile (is that a thing?)

Favourite Pastimes: Reading (of course), Writing, (naturally), playing games, especially euchre (a bit over-competitive though, so have to watch myself), playing baseball, watching hockey and baseball (Go Leafs and Jays!!), doing anything with my family, immediate and extended.  

Favourite Foods: Greek anything, especially chicken souvlaki with tzaztki!!! Chocolate, Smartfood, lasagna, pizza, and more chocolate.

    I absolutely enjoy Redeeming Love and The Scarlet Thread too! I need to get them off my shelf and read them again. I am going to have to try Susanna Kearsley and the others you mentioned- more to add to my “To Read” list. :)

      I know. I used to worry about running out of books to read someday, but the older I get and the closer to the ceiling the pile of books on my bedside table gets, the more I realize I am never even going to make a dent in all the good ones! Great problem to have though.
