About: Sarah Rose

Sarah Rose Sarah Rose is a writer living in New York. She thinks that’s the greatest sentence she ever wrote.

She’s a serious and important writer, extremely beautiful, single, has a smile that embarrasses the lights in Times Square, and is now The Saturday Evening Post’s dating columnist.
