About Me

Hello and welcome to my profile. 🙂

I was born in Southern California in the 1960’s – yes, I’m a California Girl!  Though I have lived in Arizona and Florida and now reside in Maryland, I still carry my linguistic roots and occasionally drag out my inner Valley Girl.  With a bit of “y’all” and “hon” additions for good measure.

Married for more than twenty years to an amazing guy, I have two sons. My elder is officially an adult and my younger is a teenager. I have one degree in English and one in Ministry, and I claim Theology’s crimson Master’s collar, too. My employment has spanned a vast spectrum, but now I prefer to work at home.

I spend my days writing books and short stories, and even some fanfiction from time to time, deriving inspiration from Pride and Prejudice, True Grit and The Last of the Mohicans. If I’m not writing, I’m probably editing something or catching up with my favorite shows on Netflix or Amazon Prime Video. Reading is a given. I think I’m on my third fourth Kindle, now, and I still have hundreds of paperbacks and numerous bookshelves.

I received a Liebster Award and finally got around to claiming it in June of 2013.


Thank you. 🙂

Online, I can be found on Goodreadstwitter, and Facebook.

May your life be blessed with all that is best for you!

    Hiya Sandy!

    I just followed you on twitter… I know you’re incredibly excited.

    I did my first tweet today, and felt like a raving idiot. At this rate, world domination will never be mine. I am totally paralyzed by the small things. Also, I am pretty sure composing a tweet should not be nerve-wracking.

    p.s.—“I enjoy helping writers look their best on paper.” Kind of made me cringe… My random comma use and my tendency to hyphenate-at-will must make you kind of crazy.

      Yes, I’m incredibly excited. lol I was just thinking about you (which sends you over the boughs, I know). Welcome to twitter. It IS nervewracking for a first-timer to compose a tweet and have it go out to the world.

      Your hyphens are fun to read and I enjoy the random commas. Truly. Now I’m going to go and follow you back.

    Great bio, Sandy. I enjoyed reading that you have degrees in English and Theology. I think that’s super! Good luck with all your future ventures!

    • Sandi · January 29, 2013

      Why, thank you, sir. 🙂 Writing a bio stresses me out something awful. lol

      Best wishes in all you do, too!
