Sarah L. Covert
Sarah L. Covert is a writer, editor, and publisher living in Charlotte, North Carolina with her adorable cats Selina and Kal-el and her wonderful husband, Henry. She grew up in a small town outside of Pittsburgh, where her love for reading and writing science-fiction, strange tales and horror began. She was only 10 years old when she wrote her first scary story. She lived in Portland, Oregon for a decade, where her love for the strange and unusual was fostered.
Sarah's interest in the unusual has landed her many fascinating opportunities. In addition to several published poems and articles for online publications, she also created an expansive mythos for an alien culture featured in a sci-fi board game entitled "You'n'IT". Sarah has even worked in film and television. She was Second Assistant Director for a zombie feature film called "Flesh Of My Flesh". Later, she worked as the Associate Producer of the local public access program "Northwest Artist Spotlight", and has contributed her talents to a smattering of short films. For several years she collaborated with Lurker Films, coordinating the "H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival" and "Zompire: The Undead Film Festival". Now she is here to bring you the latest in Science-Fiction, Strange Tales and Horror at She Never Slept: News and Reviews. She also has an exciting new project - Double Feature Press! And as if that wasn't enough, Sarah added more to her plate recently and joined the staff of ConCarolinas as Film Festival Manager.With all of that on her plate, it is no wonder she never sleeps!
“Someone once asked what it was that first drew me to horror, science-fiction and strange tales. That's easy - Drive-In Theater Double Features. As a child my family and I would regularly go to the drive-in (back when they were far more prevalent). Usually they would play a "kid friendly" movie as the opener and a more adult movie later in the evening when the kids should have been sleeping. I never slept.” – Sarah L. Covert
