Sarah Hookey

Sarah Hookey is a two-time published fiction author with a Niagara Falls background but a New York City heart and a love for all things theatre and pop culture. 

With a Diploma in Journalism (2019) and a Graduate Certificate in Public Relations (2020), both from Niagara College in Ontario, Canada, Sarah channels her inner theatre nerd into her writing in the form of reviews, feature stories and opinion pieces.  

In her spare time, you can probably find her binge-listening to cast albums, obsessing over all things Broadway and parenting her accident-prone Shih Tzu.
