Sarah Ratliff grew up in New York City. After 20 years in the corporate world, in 2008 Sarah and her husband bought an organic farm on the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico. It was here that Sarah Ratliff began writing professionally in 2009.
Most of Sarah's writing has been as a ghost—taking on the personas of her clients. However, with the reception of her co-authored book, Being Biracial: Where Our Secret Worlds Collide, in 2015, Sarah started writing for bylines.
In general, Sarah's writing focuses on advocacy: of the environment, the plight faced by Black and Brown people as well as women, geopolitics—especially if it relates to Puerto Rico—and plant medicine. For a few of Sarah Ratliff's bylined articles, please see her portfolio.
