S.A. Youngman has been a storyteller since grammar school. Her first published work was "The Good Kid," a short story featured in 1983’s The Raconteur, her high school's literary magazine. Her second was a semi-autobiographical essay entitled "Fluffernutter Sandwiches and Millionaires" published in Trenton State College's Lion's Eye in 1985. Since then, she has written radio ads for a New York non-profit organization (for which she received the AAF Crystal Prism Award in 1988) and—while her novels were gestating—she wrote several plays, two of which have been published and performed throughout the United States and in Australia.
A native Jersey Girl, Ms. Youngman spent her formative years working, living and playing in Manhattan, which influenced much of her writing. After earning a B.A. in Commercial Design, she opted instead to fashion a career out of being a cog in the corporate America wheelhouse. She has also been active in community and regional theater in NJ as a director, producer and stage manager since the turn of the century.
