SARAH E. DANIELS
Narrative Director | Lead Writer | Creative Producer
Humans are hard-wired for narrative.
In design, it comes first; it rules every pixel, tap, and turn.
Professionally, I'm often required to mimic real life.
In my personal work, I tend toward the surreal.
Welcome to my world.
In my career, I enjoy publishing as much as creating. The games below represent released titles with writing and/or narrative direction credits, my ludography is infinitely longer.

My first picture book, "I Love You More Than Spiders," celebrates the precocious unflinching malice of small children.

Professionally, it is all about the written word, but stories come to me in a rush of images. My quiet moments are often occupied with a sketchpad. Here are some samples of my work. Taken as a collective, it appears I like bees, bats and bunny suits.

"Yes, and...". Magical words.
Creative partnerships are the core of my career, and my great joy is leading fellow creatives. Since 2012, I've specialized in NARRATIVE DESIGN directing, writing and editing more than a dozen scripts for long-format, story-driven games. My games have been downloaded hundreds of millions of times worldwide and translated into several languages.
My background is in CREATIVE PRODUCTION for both the commercial photography and video game industries. In most instances, I'm hired as a catalyst, recruited to recharge teams and revitalize story worlds.
For over 20 years, I've partnered with international, creative talent as a publishing liaison for companies like Corbis, RealNetworks, Scripps Media, Gamehouse, Oberon, iWin and Electronic Arts. Among my list of clients are Reuters, NatGeo, Lifetime Television, the ATF, GSN, JamCity, and countless, independent photography and game studios.
My early career is best described as kindness-driven. My professional, non-profit experience includes the Missionaries of Charity, St. Joseph's Foodbank, Shorebank Advisory Services, Pediatric Home Care, and the Earthjustice Legal Defense Fund. Additionally, I've professionally test-driven cars for General Motors and built case files for the Exxon Valdez litigation.
Due to an insatiable curiosity, I've couch-surfed around the globe, from Kenya to Japan, from England to Maui and all points in between. I've sailed the Inside Passage, soloed multiple mountains from the Cascades to the Sangre de Cristos to Haleakala. For four years, I lived on a sailboat in the Puget Sound before single-handedly converting a school bus into an RV which I then drove around the US collecting stories. My goal is to learn something new every day and bring more "yes" into the world for the good of all.
I currently reside in Camden, Maine where I'm working on my first book.
I'm available for writing and illustration work.
Let's make something beautiful together.
