Sarah Towle – Children’s Book Author & Editor, Historian & Digital Storyteller, Voice Actor and Founder of Time Traveler Tours & Tales
Sarah is a career educator who left the classroom several years ago to turn her attention full time to developing interactive story-based experiences that #TurnHistoryOn for children and youth. Under the auspices of Time Traveler Tours, Sarah creates immersive story-based treasure hunts to historic places enhanced with gamification and augmented reality features that enable the curious to unlock the secrets hiding beneath the surface of a place. A mash-up of Horrible Histories and Pokémon Go, they deliver fun, unforgettable adventures into the past. Sarah’s mission is to ensure that no young person says, “History is boring!” ever again.
Sarah also writes, edits and fact-checks works of historical fiction. She publishes a twice-weekly blog called the #HistoryHero BLAST – fun, factual fables of (mostly) ordinary figures doing extraordinary things – that is en route to becoming a podcast. She harnesses her vocation as a vocalist to record books for authors and publishers, among others. And to keep her teaching chops honed, she's a creative writing coach and workshop facilitator.
