Sarah Schmidt is the author of See What I Have Done (Grove Atlantic, August 2017). She currently works as a reading & literacy coordinator (read: a fancy librarian) at a regional public library. She was inspired to write her first novel, See What I Have Done, after stumbling across the case of Lizzie Borden by chance in a second-hand bookshop. Her research for the novel has included spending several nights in the infamous Borden house.
