“History, Aristotle says, represents things only as they are, while fiction represents them as they might be and ought to be.”
— Albert J. Nock, Memoirs of a Superfluous Man
Sarah A. Hoyt

Sarah Hoyt was born in Portugal and lives in Colorado. In between, she’s worked at jobs ranging from dishwasher in a hotel in Germany to multilingual scientific translator for a company in South Carolina. She denies that she has a writing problem and insists she can give it up as soon as she wants to, but the longest she ever managed to go without writing was two weeks, and then a novel attacked her.

Sarah has published around 23 novels (she hasn’t counted lately) and 100 short stories with publishers like Berkley, Bantam, and Baen, and magazines such as Asimov’s and Analog, as well as a variety of anthologies. Lately, she’s decided to work only for Baen, the publisher that doesn’t drive her nuts, and as the other works revert, she’s republishing them herself.

She’s also independently publishing novels that aren’t appropriate for Baen. Her novel Darkship Thieves won the 2011 Prometheus Award for Best Libertarian Novel. The first book of her Musketeer’s Mysteries series was an alternate book club selection. Her first indie fantasy novel, Witchfinder, just came out.

She also writes as Sarah D’Almeida and Elise Hyatt. She’s married, has an adult son and a teenager, and she has a tendency to adopt stray cats and humans. Oh, and she intends to keep writing.
