Meet the Authors

Welcome Author Sarah Johnson to the Read to Lead/Write to Enlight Book Festival. Sarah is a new author from Indianapolis who has written a multi-genre book about finding strength in difficult times. She is a Christian author with a passion for sharing the Word of Christ. In her memoir “The Devil Inside Me: Finding Jesus in a Life of Struggle” she describes in detail her grueling 24-year battle with a medical condition called Superior Mesenteric Artery Syndrome (SMAS), which she believes could’ve claimed her life had it not been for her relationship with God.

Sarah, who oversees accounts payable at an engineering firm, has a master’s degree in Business Management from Indiana Wesleyan University and received her undergraduate degree in Telecommunications from Ball State University. She and her husband Jeff reside in the Indianapolis area with their three sons, Nathan, Charlie, and Will, and beloved dog Lucy. In addition to writing, Sarah volunteers as a seamstress for a local nonprofit and she enjoys gardening, hiking, baking and raising butterflies. Her interest in weather has led to becoming a professional storm chaser and photographer for Extreme Weather Videos (EWV) and SVL Media, LLC. Her video footage has earned recognition from the ABC television show Good Morning America (2017). Follow on Facebook at and Instagram
