Sarah R. Yoffa is a Mechanical Engineer and has been an actual Rocket Scientist but her first love is writing fiction. Sarah currently lives and works south of Raleigh, NC but her dream is to retire to Arad, Israel, where she can get up at sunrise to have a cup of coffee with G*d in the Wadi of the Negev Desert.

Sarah writes Romantic Suspense under her real name and expects the first book of The Banbha Series to be released in early 2013. Sarah’s Romantic Suspense will always carry a subplot entailing some aspect of human trafficking, in an effort to shine a light on the injustices of modern-day slavery. Because Sarah is a stalwart animal-lover, most of her books have a dog, cat or other animal “with a personality” of their own (not just a fluffy prop).

Sarah also blogs non-fiction marketing and Indie Publishing tips as Webbiegrrl Writer and Sarah has written one (and only one) Jewish Inspirational / Romantic Comedy called Coming Home (Dicky’s Story). That book released in March of 2011 but Dicky’s Story is due for re-release in late 2012, with new cover art and a hardcover edition. Although Dicky’s Story is light-hearted and uplifting in the end, the opening of the book deliberately shines a light on the injustices against women in ultra-right-wing, fundamentalist religious communities—and all religions have them.

They say when God closes a door, He opens a window, so what happens when the ceiling comes crashing down on top of you? This inspirational story of a secular man’s faith walk is improved by the fact it’s wrapped around a heart-warmingly sweet and side-splittingly hilarious love story. The Romantic Comedy outshines the faith walk at times, but isn’t our love for each other a gift from the Almighty?

Sarah will donate 5% of all profits from this book, calculated and paid quarterly, to each of her causes (i.e., 5% to Abolish Child Trafficking/Covenant House and 5% to U.S. War Dogs Assn.)

 
 
 

 
Sarah’s Causes:

Abolish Child Trafficking (A.C.T.) is a campaign by Covenant House, a non-profit organization to assist and advocate for homeless children in the Americas (North and Latin America). In addition to providing shelter, food and immediate crisis assistance for trafficked and/or homeless children, Covenant House helped move both International Megan’s Law and the Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking Deterrence & Victims Support Act of 2010 through legislation.
 

The United States War Dogs Association, Inc. is a nonprofit organization of Former and Current US Military Dog Handlers and supporting members committed to promoting the long history of the Military Working Dogs (MWDs), establishing permanent War Dog Memorials, and educating the public about the invaluable service of these canines to our country.

Our background in military War Dog service and our dedication to honoring the memory of the service and sacrifice of the US Military Working

Dogs gives us a unique perspective that we can use to educate the public on the history of Military War Dogs.

Funding to the U.S. War Dogs Assn. is distributed in the following seven ways:

(1) Education through the use of a Traveling U. S. War Dog Exhibit;
(2) fundraising to establish War Dog Memorials;
(3) K-9 Corps Commemorative Stamp Drive to have the U. S. Postal Service issue a commemorative stamp for all MWDs;
(4) helping to establish a National War Dog Memorial in Washington, D.C.;
(5) fund-raising to assist service dog organizations such as MWDs, Police K-9 units, and various Search and Rescue units;
(6) assisting in K-9 Adoption to give retiring Military and Police Canines loving forever homes where they can live out their golden years with dignity and comfort; and
(7) post-deployment outreach for returning troops. At the current time, MWDs are not even guaranteed a return flight to the U.S. after their deployment has been served. Bringing War Dogs home is just as important as bringin home our human warriors.
