Sarah Rubio is an editor of children’s books at Tyndale House Publishers and the author of the picture book Far from Home: A Story of Loss, Refuge, and Hope. She grew up as a missionary kid in Ecuador and graduated from Wheaton College in 2006. She has been an avid reader ever since she convinced her mom to teach her to read before her kindergarten teacher got around to it. She joined Tyndale’s editorial team in 2007, working mainly on Spanish books until transitioning to English nonfiction and children’s in 2014. One of the first Tyndale products she encountered was a One Year Bible that her father read with her every year from the age of eight to eighteen. Sarah loves challenging authors to be better writers while they’re challenging her with the ideas in their books. Her favorite books are the ones that give readers a window into a new world—a different culture, a magical universe, an obscure branch of science, a new idea, or an old idea presented in a new way. Sarah is married to her high school sweetheart and is the proud mom of two handsome boys.
