About the Author

SARA READ is co-founder of #momswritersclub. Originally from Washington, DC, she tried the nine-to-five life for about a nanosecond before moving to rural Virginia to become a flute-maker's apprentice. A cancer survivor herself, Sara now has the distinct privilege of caring for cancer patients as a nurse. She lives in Charlottesville, Virginia, with her husband, two teens, a terrier, and three snarky cats.


"Debut novelist Read has created a thoroughly sympathetic character in this witty, quick, and emotionally turbulent tale that will have readers cheering for Johanna well after the last page."

"Laugh out loud funny and poignant, this gem of a debut novel has it all, a messy soccer mom on the run, an art heist, dubious choices, and a heartwarming love story. I loved it! Sara Read is a writer to watch."
--LORI FOSTER, New York Times bestselling author

"Johanna Porter Is Not Sorry is...a fast read with a strong message about women learning to stand on their own, and powerful men who do as they please."
--Star Tribune

"I could gush about so many things in this book. I do want to point out the writing--it is brilliant! The plot is clever, mixing an art heist with payback, art, addiction, self-discovery, and even romance. I loved Johanna for her spunk and spirit."
--Susan Ballard, Subakka Bookstuff

"Johanna Porter is Not Sorry is a story of one woman's excavation of identity, and the inevitable mess before the beauty happens. Debut author Sara Read's prose is agile and evocative in this nuanced exploration of human imperfection, reminding us how sometimes the transformation we seek can only happen when we get out of our own way. Vivid, visceral, and sexy--I loved it."
--JEN DEVON, author of Bend Toward the Sun
