Sarah Bullion is a 12th generation American related to Sarah Wildes, hung for witchcraft in Salem, Massachusetts in 1692; a Marine General, WWII hero; father and son Admirals; Lady Godiva; and Eugene Field, author of Wynken, Blynken, and Nod. She was born in Chicago (Go Cubs) but raised nestled between the feral Pacific Ocean and the verdant redwood forests of New-Agey Santa Cruz, CA in the ‘70s and ‘80s. (Vamos Gigantes.)
She was an obsessive comic book reader, three-sporter athlete who attended volleyball practices and, since she sees and talks to ghosts, psychic camps alike.
Sarah has walked on five continents from snorkeling in Australia to SCUBA diving in Egypt. Her first language was Spanish as her parents were in the Peace Corps, and she was a baby when they took her and her three older brothers to South America in 1971. She learned French in high school, and taught herself Italian before taking a trip there. She also speaks just enough Swedish to get into trouble. Not that that’s hard. She has a fascination for how words entwine to create language and expression.
Sarah’s undergraduate degree from historically women’s, Mills College, Oakland, CA focused on the Italian Renaissance and she completed her MFA in TV/Screenwriting at another historically women’s college, Stephen’s College, Columbia, MO.
Sarah is using her distracting fascination with History writing a pilot about pre-Gold Rush San Francisco; another pilot about the real life story of a 1970s Little League coach and drug smuggler’s wife; and developing her coming-of-age, semi-autobiographical ghost story FRIEND, a Quarterfinalist at the Page International Screenwriting Awards.
During their work together on the TV show, “Shark,” James Woods’ nickname for Sarah alternated between “Hey, Gorgeous” and “Hey, Fucker.”
