Sarah A. Younger, is a native Floridian whose ancestors settled in Florida in the post-Civil War period. In researching family history, a discovery led to the fact that she is a seventh generation Floridian on her grandfather's side of the family. The stories Sarah has passed on in the novel, "A Bend in the Straight and Narrow," and the sequel, "Ye Who Are Weary, Come Home," were told to her by her grandmother, Granny O'Steen. It is Granny O'Steen who appears on the cover of the novel, "Ye Who Are Weary". The picture dates back to 1896, standing on the steps of LaCrosse Baptist Church in Lacrosse, Florida.
Mrs. Younger has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Baylor University and an Education degree from the University of Southern Colorado. She has an avid interest in history and quilting. She lives in Merritt Island, Florida, with her husband and Charlie, the beagle dog.
