I am a poet, essayist, foodie and children’s book author who explores her world through words, which are my tools for digging into my Iraqi-Jewish roots. Words are what I love to conjure over a pot, mixed with garlic, onion and ginger, to feed my husband, four boys (and dog). Words are my bridge from my kitchen to the world.


Sarah’s work has appeared in the Michigan Quarterly Review, Ruminate, Lilith, The Ilanot Review, Consequence Forum and elsewhere. Her first micro-chapbook, This is Why We Don’t Look Back is forthcoming online with Harbor Review.

Shoham’s Bangle is Sarah’s debut children’s picture book. Her second children’s picture book, This is Not a Cholent is forthcoming with Kar-Ben Publishing in 2024.
