Joining Brunette Games this spring is Sara Hardin, writer | designer I. Sara wowed the whole team with her poise and persistence in the interview process, not to mention her promising writing chops. She managed to grab our interest and pull at our heartstrings with a one-page vignette she wrote just for the job application, as all of her other writing samples were inaccessible due to a tech issue! Let that be a lesson to those of you out on the job hunt...
Sara comes to the team with five years' professional experience in both journalism and publishing. As a writer for Our Town magazine and St. Louis County Community News, Sara won two awards from the Missouri Press Convention, for Best Education Story and Best Military Story. As a former journalist herself, BG owner Lisa Brunette feels captured by Sara's reporter voice and looks forward to seeing her translate that into great game character dialogue.
Sara's publishing experience comes from a three-year stint with major medical textbook publisher Elsevier. Meeting strict publishing deadlines and interfacing with a wide range of authors gives Sara the perfect background to work with Brunette Games clients, not to mention meet our own release deadlines.
While we don't get a lot of call for French dialogue outside of the character Coco in Redemption Games' title Sweet Escapes, we'll be sure to draw on Sara's expertise in French if we do.
In her free time, Sara loves to read, bake, play mobile games, and spend time with her fiancé and their two cats, Calcifer and Moose. Please join us in welcoming Sara to the team!
