JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — Sarah Sover is set to make her authorial debut Aug. 13 with an adult fantasy caper inspired by the fairytale the “Three Billy Goats Gruff.”
Sover, a Johns Creek resident, said her novel, “Double-Crossing the Bridge,” combines the heist action of “Ocean’s 11” with the dark, irreverent humor of “Deadpool.”
“It’s an atypical fantasy about a group of trolls that go on a suicidal heist,” she said. “It’s weird.”
Sover said her journey to becoming a published author, a goal she’s held since middle school, was about “embracing her weird side.”
“I’m hoping I get a lot of reactions like ‘what the hell did I just read?’” she said. “Hopefully, it will brighten somebody’s day and maybe confuse a few family members.”
When she’s not writing Sover is a stay-at-home mom who enjoys swing dancing, painting, creating jewelry, gardening and death metal music.
A short story by Stover was featured in the anthology for JordanCon 2019, but “Double-Crossing the Bridge” is her first novel.
“It’s overwhelming and wonderful and scary,” she said. “It’s a pretty cool feeling to have validation after working for something for so long.
Sover has already caught the attention of the national magazine Writer’s Digest and will be featured in its September issue as a breakout novelist.
Sover will also make an appearance at the Decatur Book Festival from Aug. 13 to Sept. 1.
