Sara Saedi is the author of Americanized: Rebel Without a Green Card, Never Ever, and the upcoming The Lost Kids. She was born in Tehran, Iran smack-dab in the middle of a war and an Islamic Revolution. As the story goes, she entered the world to the sounds of bombs exploding near the hospital. Though her memory of the day is a little fuzzy, the life and death stakes surrounding her birth helped prepare her for a writing career. Sara received a B.A. in Film and Mass Communications from the University of California, Berkeley and began her career as a creative executive for ABC Daytime. In 2010, she left the company to pursue her dream of being a writer. She’s since penned three TV movies for ABC Family, won a Daytime Emmy for “What If…,” a web series she wrote for ABC, and wrote for the FOX series The Goodwin Games. Her first YA novel, Never Ever, was published by Viking in 2016. The sequel, The Lost Kids, will be out in April 2018. She currently writes for The CW show, iZombie, and resides in Los Angeles with her husband, son, and pug.
