Episode #14- Author Sarah Doran: Children’s Literature with an Appreciation for Military Life and Culture

Author Sarah Doran is on a quest to put well-written and beautifully illustrated children’s books depicting the military family lifestyle into the hands of military children and the community around them.Looking for quality children’s literature that shares an appreciation for the military culture and family life? Author Sarah Doran is on a quest to put well-written and beautifully illustrated children’s books depicting the military family lifestyle into the hands of military children and the community around them.

Her first military children’s book is called The Peppered Sky, which is based on Sarah’s memories of watching her father perform in airborne training operations at Fort Bragg. The book follows military siblings, Haley and Mason, as they go out to the drop zone with their mom and puppy to watch dad jump out of the sky.

Sarah Doran lives in Temple, Texas with her husband, two boys, and cat named “Autumn.” Growing up as a military child, Sarah has fond memories with her mother, two brothers, and sister, watching her father jump out of airplanes as an Army Airborne paratrooper. Serving in the Army herself as a Blackhawk helicopter mechanic/crew-chief from 2007-2013, Sarah supported Operation Iraqi Freedom (2009-2010) and Operation Enduring Freedom (2011-2012). When she married her husband in 2010, also a Blackhawk Crew Chief, the “military spouse” title was added to her record. Today, Sarah enjoys homeschooling her boys, writing stories, and being involved in her local community and church.
