Once upon a time, Sara Ella dreamed she would marry a prince and live in a Disney-style castle. Today, she is a winner of the ECPA Christian Book Award for her debut novel Unblemished, which released to magical applause: “a stunning journey into a fascinating new world of reflections” (RT Book Reviews). Sara spends her days throwing living room dance parties for her two princesses and conquering realms of her own imaginings.
When she’s not on deadline, Sara Ella can most often be found fangirling on Twitter, Instagram, or her YouTube channel. She may or may not be obsessed with a certain pirate from Once Upon a Time, and she has a serious condition known as “Coffee Snob-itis.” She believes “Happily Ever After is Never Far Away” for those who put their faith in the King of kings.
Sara is represented by Jim Hart of Hartline Literary.

Unblemished may have set the stage, but Unraveling will forever bind you to this story like a Kiss of Accord. Sara Ella’s exquisite writing left me gasping at new revelations and re-reading whole chapters just because. Unraveling is a sequel that outshines its already brilliant predecessor. Read it. Now. Then come fangirl with me. ~ Nadine Brandes, award winning author of the Out of Time series
A breathtaking fantasy set in an extraordinary fairytale world, with deceptive twists and an addictively adorable cast who are illusory to the end. Just when I thought I’d figured each out, Sara Ella sent me for another ride. A wholly original story, Unblemished begins as a sweet melody and quickly becomes an anthem of the heart. And I’m singing my soul out. Fans of OUAT and Julie Kagawa, brace yourselves.” ~ Mary Weber, author of the Storm Siren trilogy
Lyrically-written and achingly romantic—Unblemished will tug your heartstrings!” ~ Melissa Landers, author of Alienated and Starflight
Unblemished had me from the first chapter – mystery, romance, and mind-blowing twists and turns that I SO did not see coming! The worlds Sara Ella builds are complex and seamless; the characters she creates are beautifully flawed. Readers are sure to love this book and finish it, as I did, begging for more!” ~ Krista McGee, author of the Anomaly trilogy.
Unblemished is an enchanting, beautifully written adventure with a pitch-perfect blend of fantasy, realism, and romance. Move this one to the top of your TBR pile and clear your schedule, you won’t want to put it down!” ~Lorie Langdon, author of the Amazon bestselling Doon series.
Self-worth and destiny collide in this twisty-turny fantasy full of surprise and heart. Propelled into a world she knows nothing about, Eliyana learns that the birthmark she despises is not quite the superficial curse she thought it was—it’s worse, and the mark comes with a heavy responsibility. Can she face her reflection long enough to be the hero her new friends need? With charm and wit, author Sara Ella delivers Unblemished, a magical story with a compelling message and a unique take on the perils of Central Park.” ~ Shannon Dittemore, author of the Angel Eyes trilogy
