About Britney Farr
Author of the Search Series
What I love most about writing is transporting people into created worlds. I lead readers on a journey where they comes to an end feeling satisfied but also longing for more. There’s nothing more thrilling than getting lost in a great book, especially one with relatable people who have flaws just like the rest of us but do remarkable things despite their flaws and the impossible situations thrown at them. That’s what my books strive to do. They take flaw people and thrust them into hopeless situations so that I can expose the tenacity of someone who chooses hope and faith in God to help them overcome.
I’m a loving wife, mother to my puppy, Charlie, and follower of Jesus Christ. While I am a Southern California native and former middle school English & Theatre teacher, I now live in the Denver metropolitan area and work from home as the social communications manager for my church. When I’m not working, I enjoy reading, hiking, camping, traveling, singing, and spending time with family and friends.
What led mE to write
I first caught the writer’s bug in the eighth grade after reading The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton. Blown away at her young age, I determined that I, too, could be a best-selling author by sixteen. Boy, did God have other plans. I wrote many novellas throughout my school years, but nothing came from them. There wasn’t enough motivation for the intimidating publishing process.
Fast forward past college, a seven-year stint as a middle school English and Theatre teacher, getting married and moving to an entirely new state. I now have time, motivation, and resources to get a book published. At the beginning of 2019, I made it my new year’s resolution to have my first book publish. In August 2020, (yes, during the pandemic) I published my first post-apocalyptic novel Searching for Refuge, and I haven’t looked back since.
