Sandra attended school in Victoria, B.C. and later graduated from the University of British Columbia with a B.A. in English Literature. After her daughter came along, she chose to work close to home and indulge her love of animals by working for an amiable, if thrifty, veterinarian. She believes in promoting the right of all creatures to live the existence that Nature intended. This value is strongly evoked in her novel.
Sandra’s always lived at the edges of ocean and forest, so it came naturally to have a sentient forest as a major character in Elanraigh: The Vow. She loves kayaking the scenic Island coastline, swimming and walking. She has a ready sense of humor and an optimistic outlook (a good thing when you’re a writer).
Her publications include Dark Fantasy short stories in pro magazines and she is currently working on a sequel to Elanraigh: The Vow.
Only Thera of Allenholme hears the voice of forest-mind…and heeds its warning.
As the black ships of an ancient enemy approach Allenholme’s shores, a sentient forest strives to awaken in a young girl the almost extinct ability to commune with Forest-mind, knowing that all the lives of her people depend on the fulfillment of her destiny. Will the Elanraigh forest-mind have time to train her in what she must learn in order to survive what comes and save her land and people?
