Lovestruck Literature, Sara Rosenthal’s latest endeavor is a true labor of love born out of the uncertainty of the pandemic and a passion for storytelling. The coronavirus hit while she was working through England and Europe, leaving her stuck in Greece over the recent months and forcing the artist to rely more on writing as an outlet and source of income. She recounts doing listicles, how-tos, and other content before getting tapped to ghostwrite historical romance novels. She says “the novelty and excitement of doing this kind of fiction writing was contagious; although the novellas were technically ghostwritten, I just had to share.” Soon after, Sara started a weekly zoom doing live readings of the stories.
Being a life-long writer and storyteller, Sara had always been inspired by her grandparents’ and parents’ tales of meeting and falling for one another. This feeling came full circle after being commissioned to write romance novels and eventually sparked the idea to create custom novels for anyone looking to preserve the memory of falling in love!
With the help of her childhood friend Claire McCracken on illustrations and Jacquelyn Marie Shannon on the audiobook recordings, the trio have begun working to provide high quality stories for lovers that love books.
