Meet The Team
Sarah MacElroy has a passion for literacy, arts and the great outdoors. She grew up in Dallas, Texas and as an adult has lived all over the world and enjoys experiencing new cultures and countries. Her parents instilled in her a love of theatre, music, art, and dance when she was very young. She remembers the magic of seeing The Nutcracker Ballet for the first time and attending children’s events at The Dallas Symphony fondly. Sarah seeks to share these experiences with children through the pages of her books, and open up new worlds for them. Sarah is married to Disabled Combat Veteran, Andrew. Together they have four children, and giant Newfoundland dog. They travel the United States in an RV some of the year, but call Texas home when they are not exploring this big, beautiful world. ‘Leaping Lumberjacks’ is her debut children’s book, and her fourth published work. She has also written about motherhood in the bestselling ‘You’ve Got This, Mama’ franchise as well as the book ‘Being Mama.’

"As children, we learn to accept the stigma that identifies dance as a feminine and delicate art form. Author, wife, and mother Sarah MacElroy published her first children’s book to defy gender norms and racial stereotypes because anyone can dance."
