The Vagabond Circus was different than all the rest in many ways and the first was it had no clowns. Not a single red, round nose in the whole troupe. Maybe that was the reason that Dave had decided he’d be the silliest ringmaster in all of history. His job was to lead and move the events of the show along but he was less a Master of Ceremony and more a buffer between the jaw dropping acts.
Sarah Noffke (Suspended (The Vagabond Circus, #1))

Sarah Noffke (Rebels (The Reverians, #2))
She giggled when it was funny and when it wasn’t and when she was about to kick ass. It was just who she was. She didn’t laugh to cover nervousness. It was because she found most things in life to be strangely awesome and absurd at the same time.
Sarah Noffke (The Uncommon Rider (The Exceptional S. Beaufont, #1))
Most people aren’t happy. They sing songs like they are. Make up cute little stories. Post pics of the rare times when life wasn’t dreadful. Most people are stomaching this whole affair called life. Are these people complainers? Probably. Most are. But they’re also just blokes who’re too afraid to take a risk. So they live lives in a redundant cycle of complacent apathy. Then these people wallow around day after day in their unhappiness. The more you do that, the more you lose sight of the chances you could take to make things better.
Sarah Noffke (Revived (The Lucidites, #3))
Right now in this space, I feel a brand new pull to him. I’ve always been drawn to his features, his brilliance, his laughter, his passion. But right now I’m attracted to his pain. It makes him human. It makes him real. It makes him something he hardly ever is to me: accessible.
Sarah Noffke (Stunned (The Lucidites, #2))
You know, most wake up constructing their world from what they experienced the day before. When we look out expecting what we’ve always gotten, then that’s exactly what we get. But if we want something new, then we have to regard life with fresh eyes, ears and a mind open to possibilities.
Sarah Noffke (The Uncommon Rider (The Exceptional S. Beaufont, #1))
When we aren’t obligated to each other then we are more valuable. The couple who celebrates a marriage anniversary are only saying they have chosen appearances over choices.

Sarah Noffke (Ren: The Monster's Adventure)
I owe you my life,” he told her simply. She shook her head. “No, you owe me nothing. Friends save each other. I only did the same thing you’d do for me.

Point to one person in the world who sees their parents objectively,” Liv demanded, thrusting the screwdriver into the screw’s slot with a bit more force than she intended. “From the beginning, they keep us alive. Through acts of selflessness and sacrifice, they teach us about love, and from our earliest
Sarah Noffke (The Uncooperative Warrior (Unstoppable Liv Beaufont, #2))
And to expand on what you were saying about books, I think they are very much alive. They have the power to spark ideas, breathe life into the nonexistent, and transport us to another realm. The books in this library happen to be a bit more outwardly cunning than those found in mortals’ libraries, although even those volumes are full of power. These books just happen to know that they contain greatness and guard it from us, maybe waiting to decide if we’re ready and worthy for the wisdom they offer.” Liv let out a
Sarah Noffke (The Uncooperative Warrior (Unstoppable Liv Beaufont, #2))

Sarah Noffke (The Uncooperative Warrior (Unstoppable Liv Beaufont, #2))

Sarah Noffke (The Rebellious Sister (Unstoppable Liv Beaufont, #1))
Right. I sort of don’t know what to say to the blatant prejudice, so I’ll just bid you both farewell,
Sarah Noffke (The Defiant Magician (Unstoppable Liv Beaufont, #3))

Sarah Noffke (The Rebellious Sister (Unstoppable Liv Beaufont, #1))

His gaze appeared to try and pull her apart at the seams so he could make her anew.

Sarah Noffke (Paralyzed (The Vagabond Circus, #2))
The ringmaster’s presence was the sun to Vagabond Circus. His round happy face started each day for most. And his presence marked hope and growth and light.
Sarah Noffke (Paralyzed (The Vagabond Circus, #2))
The ringmaster wasn’t the sneaking type. He bounded out into open spaces welcoming a new experience and all the magic that a new day brought. When he entered a space, people knew it. Felt it. Things shifted. Usually people’s demeanors shifted too.
Sarah Noffke (Paralyzed (The Vagabond Circus, #2))
He didn’t have a companion, but he had the circus. He was alive with creativity. Long gone were the headaches and bouts of depression. He was in love with the creative process and that kept him warm at night.

I know there’s no way that I deserve you,” he said, cutting her off, his voice a half whisper. “We make no sense together. We are so different that our involvement should be illegal, but that doesn’t change my instinct on this. I sense we’re connected, and for a reason.
Sarah Noffke (Paralyzed (The Vagabond Circus, #2))

You want to be left alone. I get it. And against everything I want I’m going to give you space. I’ll keep giving you space. I’ll keep not talking to you. Forever and ever I’ll allow you to burn the bridges between us if that’s what you want.
Sarah Noffke (Released (The Vagabond Circus, #3))
It’s something that someone gives you. A present of sorts. But not in the physical sense. Something that comes from the presence of someone simply existing. It happens in a single moment. And then it’s gone, whooshed away with the wind, only to be stored in the memory of the heart.

But he was the wolf and the wolf was him and there was no way of pulling them apart. If he lived then he’d have to accept the beast inside of him. He’d have to come to terms with who he’d become. He’d have to tame the wolf or allow it make him wild. But one thing was certain, a werewolf and a man couldn’t exist successfully without becoming one at some point. The divide would make a man go crazy. It would turn the wolf into a rabid beast.

One day they’d find the bones of a man, not realizing that the beast inside of his body was actually what killed him.
Sarah Noffke (Alpha Wolf (Olento Research, #1))
A howl, one so guttural and deep echoed out of his throat. Then again the beast let out its plea to the dying night. His last howl was more of a croak of loss as the sunlight sparkled through the window and across the lab floor.
Sarah Noffke (Alpha Wolf (Olento Research, #1))
He almost felt a tinge of sadness for the wolf inside him. The one that wanted to run free. To hunt. To be alive.
Sarah Noffke (Alpha Wolf (Olento Research, #1))
that thought. Anyway, she mentions her cat and ALL the issues she has with it, and I believe has tried to sell or give away said cat multiple times. She has a dysfunctional relationship with her cat. Then again, most (but not all) cat owners have a master-slave relationship with their cat.

I know you all think I’m an evil author who thirsts for your tears. I, in fact do, and I am an evil author. I’m the first to admit it, but I still have feelings. Okay, just the one actually. I have a feeling.

He had always looked lost, but now he looked uninterested in being found.
Sarah Noffke (Rabid Wolf (Olento Research #3))
If he had ever tried anything, then he no doubt would have succeeded, paved a road that few could follow. But effort is the true genius.
Sarah Noffke (Rabid Wolf (Olento Research #3))
Yes, he never wanted to be a werewolf, but now that he was, it felt like he was losing a part of himself by getting rid of it. Inside of him he still felt the wolf, barking its desires, growling its disappointment.
Sarah Noffke (Rabid Wolf (Olento Research #3))
But he didn’t know how many times she’d tried. Or maybe he did, and also knew how many times she’d quit.

It was strange that what had been forced on him, was now something he didn’t want to let go of.

He was the real problem here anyway. How dare he use his intellect and wit to make her tolerate him?
Sarah Noffke (Rabid Wolf (Olento Research #3))
