Sandra grew up in the mid-west in a small farming community where she belonged to 4-H. When she was thirteen, her family moved to, Lawrence, Kansas, the town where the University of Kansas thrived. After high school, she traveled to California to live with a friend and to find a job. She became very homesick and returned home.
She worked for a major airline for thirty-six years and during this period she furthered her education. It was a lovely time in her life working for a wonderful company. She traveled to many countries such as Ireland, Germany, Switzerland, Portugal, Spain, Australia, Egypt and Hong Kong just to name a few.
While at the airline, she started writing due to her husband's influence, and in 1999 she retired to write full time and worked seriously toward publication. In 2008, she had her first book published, and then her second one in 2009. Shortly after her publisher closed their doors, and she immediately moved to a new publisher. She is still with Eirelander Publishing and has had three books and two short stories published with them.
