Sarah Bee didn't really choose to write The Yes — "The idea bounced into my head," she says, "and made it clear that it needed to be made into a book." And so, one Sunday night between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m., Sarah Bee suddenly and surprisingly became a children's book author.

The Yes, published in February in the U.S., is Bee's first book. It tells the story of "a great big orange thing called the Yes" that trundles out into a world of Nos and learns to overcome. With winsome and witty language throughout, it's sure to engage and delight both children and their grown ups. It's a book born out of the author's sense of "the unstoppable yesness and simplicity of existence and the momentum of a good idea."

In addition to (now) writing children's books, Bee writes for various British publications and websites, and she also ran the official Twitter account for Glee in the UK. She currently lives in London with her big dog (which you can see here on her website).

To learn more about Sarah, read her inspiring Eerdlings guest post, follow her on Twitter and Facebook, and, of course, check out her new book, available now in the U.S. from EBYR.
