Sara DiVello (she/her/hers) is an author. Her latest book, Broadway Butterfly: A Thriller, was an Entertainment Weekly Most Anticipated Book, CBS New York Book Club Pick, and earned starred reviews from Booklist and Library Journal.

In her prior corporate career, she spent 15 years building and running PR and marketing programs for large, international companies. She now speaks and teaches nationally on the topics of branding, social media, and publicity for authors, and is the creator/host of Mystery and Thriller Mavens, a popular author interview series and interactive Facebook group. In that role, she has interviewed over 350 authors, ranging from the bestselling and world-renowned to the buzziest debuts.

Sara joined the staff of the International Thriller Writers association in 2022, where she is the director of social media strategy.

She also serves on the board of the Friends of the South End Library, a thriving city branch of the Boston Public Library. In her spare time, Sara loves to teach yoga, cook (and eat!), garden, and go for leisurely walks with her husband and their beloved rescue mutt, Pelu.
