In 2019 Sara was named the Author of the Year by the Danish book chain Plusbog. Originally from Denmark, Sara has lived in New York, but now spends the majority of her time in Copenhagen.

The daughter of renowned Danish journalist Leif Blaedel and Annegrethe Nissen, an actress whose career include roles in theater, radio, TV and movies, Sara was surrounded by a constant flow of professional writers and performers visiting the Blaedel home.
