“After twenty-five exhausting years as a film and television actress (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Legend, Time Cop, A Stranger Among Us, Jack and The Beanstalk: The Real Story), I took up writing as a way to survive night shoots,” says Mia Sara. “It sort of worked. Now it’s words that keep me up all night. I live in Los Angeles, but I miss my hometown, New York City, every single day.”

Mia Sara’s writing has appeared or is forthcoming in PANK, Animal, Helix, Superstition Review, The South Hampton Review, poemmemoirstory, The Write Room, Smartish Pace, and The Cossack Review, among many others. Her chapbook Mid-life with Gorilla was published in 2014 by the Dusie Press, and her column “Wrought and Found” ran for two years on the PANK blog. Now she is contributing a oolumn, “Not Your High School Girlfriend,” to Barrelhouse. Her own website can be found at miasara.nyc.
