About Sal Sawler

My Story

In addition to writing (and promoting) their own books, Sal markets other people’s books as the publicist for Conundrum Press, a literary graphic novel publisher based in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. They’re also a former bookseller; years of experience at Woozles Children’s Bookstore in Halifax (Canada’s oldest children’s bookstore!) provided them with valuable publishing insight into everything from cover design to merchandising, and cemented their love of children’s literature. 

Sal is also a freelance writer with bylines in Atlantic Books TodayQuill & Quire, ParentsCanada, The Loop, Halifax Magazine, and more.  They have also worked as an online technical writing instructor for Dalhousie University’s Continuing Education Department, spoken to elementary school classes, facilitated professional development courses, presented at conferences and festivals, signed piles of books, and once created a fictional biography for a rooster.

They live in Halifax with their partner, two kids, two cats, and one dog. 


Growing up is highly overrated. Just be an author.

– Neil Gaiman
