Sabra writes about exploitation, healthcare, food and agriculture, homelessness, human trafficking, prison, tech, and cults.
Sabra is currently seeking an agent for her memoir CAVEGIRL about testifying against her trafficker/dad. Born on the set of the Coen brothers movie Raising Arizona to criminal parents, she survived her child actor career and homelessness as a teenager.
Sabra is a writer, web developer, former healthcare administrator, child trafficking survivor, and “retired” child actor. Born on the set of the Coen brothers movie Raising Arizona, she now lives in Seattle with her kind husband who shares a love for tea, stormy weather, and writing pop songs about their dog. Her dream is to someday produce an opera about human trafficking written by and starring survivors. She also sleeps sometimes.


Projects in the works

Born a Coen Brothers Movie

Sabra is seeking an agent for her memoir about the tragicomic omen cast when she was born to a mafioso dad and a casting director stage mom on the set of the Coen Brothers movie Raising Arizona. A redemptive adventure about a former child actor who survives child trafficking and teen homelessness. When her mom kicks her out for being gay, she survives high school in a cave before joining a martial arts cult. A riches-to-rags, then back-to-riches coming of age true crime story set against the backdrop of the film and television industry of the 90s about cults, homelessness, child trafficking, and finding the place you belong.
