I'm a American writer currently researching and rewriting
my first novel, half of which takes place in ancient Canaan, 4,000 years ago, in the Middle East. Some of my DNA is from the Druze Tribe, who currently live in this area. You can find excerpts from my novel and my short stories in
"Woven Tale Press," "Blue Lake Review," "So It Goes," "Ilanot Review,""Beloit Fiction Journal" and in other litmags. If you're in the mood for satire or sci fi, check out my work in "The Satirist" and "Daily Frier." I've also published poetry in litmags (reprinted in anthologies), my creative non-fiction is in"The New York Times, "Times of Israel," "Huffpo Canada," "San Francisco Chronicle" etc. and I've sold two screenplays. In the past I've published as "Sari Friedman" or "Sarita Azul." I'm now publishing as Sari Ellen. Ask me about my vodka research and how it helps me deal with my idealism and hope for humanity.
