Sara Fujimura

FUJIMURA Sara Headshot.jpeg

Sara Fujimura (Foo-gee-moo-rah) is the American half of her bicultural Japanese-American
family and spends about a month each summer in Japan with her now-adult children. She started
as a journalist, so it is no surprise that Sara’s young adult books contain a lot of facts to go along
with the fiction. Whether you want to know about Japan (TANABATA WISH), the Spanish Flu
pandemic of 1918 (BREATHE), what it’s like to be an Olympic-caliber skater (EVERY
REASON WE SHOULDN’T), or how unscripted television works (FAKING REALITY), Sara
takes readers on swoony journeys to unusual places. She is a creative writing teacher and literacy
advocate who is excited to support the next generation of authors. If you go to anime cons in
Arizona, you may also see Sara as her alter ego, The Obento Lady. She is an active member of

EVERY REASON WE SHOULDN’T was named an NPR Best Book of 2020.

Sara is represented by Ann Rose of the Prospect Agency.
