Sarah Rubin

Sarah Rubin grew up on an island off the coast of Maine, spending most of her childhood dressing up, reading and trying to get lost in the woods.

Sarah earned her BA in Creative Writing and History from Skidmore College, New York, and after teaching dance and drama for a year, she moved to Winchester in England. Her first novel, Dreamer Ballerina, published in 2011, while the two books in her Alice Jones mystery series, Alice Jones: the Impossible Clue and Alice Jones: the Ghost Light, are both out now.

Dreamer Ballerina

Looking at her skinny chicken legs poking up from the ground, you'd never think that Casey Quinn could ever be a ballerina.

But just because Casey can't do ballet in high-tops doesn't mean she can't dance. She has more grace in her pinkie toe than the local rich girls put together. And Casey has a dream to dance in New York and no one is going to stop her.
