About Sarah Dass

Sarah Dass is a young adult fiction author from Tobago that is best known for her debut work of fiction “Where the Rhythm Takes You.”

While she was born in Trinidad, her family moved to Tobago when she was two years old. Dass has been telling stories since she was a young child. At the age of eight years old, when she ran out of “Nancy Drew” novels to read, she tried to pen her own. She would later go on to attend the University of the West Indies and University College London.

Sarah grew up in a seaside resort in Tobago and her debut novel draws inspiration from her experience living there. She has described “Where the Rhythm Takes You” as the book she would have wanted to read when she was growing up – a romantic, contemporary YA story set in her home country. She hopes readers like her, who love Trinidad and Tobagonian or Caribbean-set fiction enjoy and connect with her characters.

Sarah’s most recent YA novels “When the Vibe is Right” will be published by Balzer + Bray / HarperCollins on May 30th, 2023, and “It Waits in the Forest” will be published by Disney / Rick Riordan Presents in 2024.
