Sarah Penner is the New York Times and internationally bestselling author of The Lost Apothecary which will be translated into forty languages worldwide and is set to be turned into a drama series by Fox. With crackling suspense, unforgettable characters and searing insight, The Lost Apothecary is a subversive and intoxicating debut novel of secrets, vengeance and the remarkable ways women can save each other despite the barrier of time.
Sarah’s second book, The London Séance Society, is forthcoming in early 2023 and is a spellbinding gothic whodunit in two enigmatic women who set out to solve a most unusual mystery. Written with alluring suspense and sultry prose, it is an entrancing tale that explores the blurred lines between truth and illusion and reveals the grave risks women will take to avenge the ones they love.
A graduate of the University of Kansas, Sarah spent thirteen years in corporate finance and now writes full-time. She and her husband live in Florida.

Miko Marks made her way to Music City in 2003 playing CMA Fest year after year and fully immersing herself in the country music community. While Marks received well-deserved accolades as “Nashville’s Hottest New Country Star” by People Magazine and “Best New Country Artist” by New Music Weekly, her efforts to be fully embraced by the industry in return proved to be elusive. Back with a new album in 2021, Our Country refuses to be put squarely into one box. Rooted in country, blues, soul and roots, and woven together by her distinctive vocals, Marks’s powerful sound is blazing an unprecedented trail in the music industry.
