My name is Sarah Walker Caron and I am a freelance writer, editor and recipe developer. I also shoot photos for some of my assignments and am active on major social networking sites including Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram.
In the beginning ...
I started my career as a newspaper reporter, first covering the police and weekend beat and later covering courts, cops, local governments and schools. I once argued an FOIA case in Hartford against a school district’s lawyer and won. Through my work at the paper, I developed a tenacity and addiction to deadlines that’s served me well in all my journalistic endeavors.
What I’m up to
These days, I am the senior features editor for the Bangor Daily News in Bangor, Maine. We are a statewide paper, and I oversee our food, culture, arts, outdoors and family coverage.
As a writer, I specialize in food, travel and parenting — and the intersection of these things. You can find my recipes on sites like Betty Crocker and Pillsbury. I also write about food for Momtastic, iVillage and occasionally contribute to Yum for Kids Magazine, Connecticut Magazine and BELLA Magazine. Be sure to also check out my blogs: Sarah’s Cucina Bella, a food blog about home cooking and raising a healthy family; Sarah by the Sea, a lifestyle blog; Sarah’s Seafood Shack, a food blog about all things seafood; and The Lunch Box Ladies, a food blog about packing delicious lunches for school and work.
When I am not busy in the kitchen or at the computer, I am a voracious reader, shoe addict and absolute beach lover. I am also mom to two wonderful kids who also love food and the beach (and reading too!), wife to a supportive guy and designated feeder and petter to two beagles.
As a full time freelance writer, I am always on the hunt for great assignments and new gigs. Want to work with me?
