Salt & Sage Books

We are a creative community of devoted readers, writers, and editors, and we’ve brought together our diverse skills and experiences in a single welcoming place, to help writers like you.



Carling Mars Carling likes writing dark, spooky, bloody fiction. They’ve published one book (a memoir on mental illness), several short stories, and lots of reviews. They help run the Writers with Mental Illness book club. They volunteer with a community writing center and work with English language learners.

Welcome to the Salt and Sage Books Spotlight series! We welcome you into our creative community by inviting you to meet our editors and expert readers, and to hear a little of their own story, in their own words. We believe that by honoring each other’s voices, we’re able to turn creativity into community and change the world through story.
