Sabrina Jarema is an award-winning author of historical and fantasy romance. She is currently writing the Viking Lords series, a family saga set in Norway during the ninth century. Having always been fascinated by this intriguing, sophisticated people, she uses her love of research about this time to bring her stories to life.
Sabrina has a beautiful forty-acre Arabian horse farm just north of Ocala, Florida where a herd of fat, lazy Arabian horses graze under moss-covered oaks. One of them is the multi National Champion Arabian Sport Horse Mare, Ivory Shaddara ++++//, AKA Dumplin’, who is now retired and living the good life as a pasture potato. A pack of White German Shepherds, including several Grand Victrixes, guard the farm when they’re not sleeping all over the couches in the living room. A menagerie of tortoises, turtles, fish and cats round out the circus.
To avoid farm work as much as possible, she also loses herself in her art, music, dollhouses, needlework, and jewelry. She plays the harp, guitar, and keyboard, and has been a professional fantasy illustrator.
Sabrina is an active member of the Tampa Area Romance Authors chapter of the Romance Writers of America. She is represented by Nalini Akolekar at Spencerhill Associates.
I live just north of Ocala, Florida, the Horse Capitol of the World. I have a herd of fat, lazy Arabians (and the occasional Thoroughbred) on 40 beautiful acres. One of the Arabians actually works for a living— Ivory Shaddara ++++//, AKA “Dumpling”. We show at Arabian shows all over the eastern US at the Regional and National level. I also have a bunch of spoiled German Shepherds which I enjoy showing. We’re joined by a variety of turtles, tortoises and some very obnoxious cockatiels.
To avoid farm work as much as possible, I keep busy with other interests: writing Romance novels, illustrating, playing the harp, keyboard and guitar, creating jewelry, and building Victorian dollhouses. I studied Iaido, the art of Japanese swordsmanship, for many years and I also love beadwork, needlework, photography, cake decorating and amateur astronomy. There are too many possibilities in this world to do only one or two things in life.
I have been a professional fantasy illustrator and have won many awards for my work. I am the Secretary of the Ocala Arabian Horse Association, and am on the Board of Directors of the White German Shepherd Dog Club of America. I am a member of the Romance Writers of America and the Tampa Area Romance Authors.
But even with all this, at the end of the day I still find the time to just sit on my Victorian porch, surrounded by my dogs, watching the horses graze under the moss-covered oaks. And as I greet my beloved stars, I dream of the songs, stories and visions the coming night will bring…
Walk in starlight always, Sabrina
