An Interview with Sara Ella & Nadine Brandes, two YA authors committed to writing clean fiction

This week, Sara had the great privilege of interviewing Nadine Brandes and Sara Ella, two authors who, like her, are committed to writing and finding clean books for teens, tweens, or anyone. They both have books coming out this year and have several already in print. Check them out here…

Quote from author Sara Ella: ”…you won’t find profanity or sexual content in our stories…We truly want other parents to feel safe giving our books to their teens. If we wouldn’t want our kids reading it as a young adult, we don’t include it in our books.”

Other Books by Nadine Brandes and Sara Ella


Within these Lines by Stephanie Morrill

Within These Lines is both a heartfelt YA romance and a hard look into the degrading treatment of Japanese-Americans and immigrants during World War II. I highly recommend this YA historical romance. Readers will enjoy the perseverance of love in the face of adversity and will mourn with a people who were unjustly treated—many by their own country. Read the full review…
