Max and Sarah

Sarah Elkins is a freelance writer and poet, but she is mostly a reader. (Here's what she's been reading lately.) Sarah earned a BA with majors in English & Philosophy from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and an MFA in Poetry from Pacific University. 

She and her husband, Max, run Hammer Cycles bike shop in White Sulphur Springs, WV. 


Since 2019, Sarah has served as a member of Lewisburg, WV City Council, and chair of the Parks Commission. Sarah is an avid mountain biker and works to promote trail development throughout the Greenbrier Valley. She, Max, and a handful of other volunteers founded the Greenbrier Valley Youth Mountain Bike Team in 2019. She currently serves as team director. Additionally, Sarah chairs the local IMBA (International Mountain Bicycling Association) chapter GVORBA (Greenbrier Valley Off-road Bicycling Association).

Sarah lives in Lewisburg, WV with Max; their son, Tad; dog, Messick; and one last goldfish, unnamed, who survived the roaming cat massacre of 2021.
