My motto in life is I'll try anything once!
To check out excerpts from my novels, books I've read, writing tips and other interesting info, visit my website.
I'm married, have two sons and a Hungarian Vizsla dog. My hobbies include motorcycle riding, corresponding with penpals, cooking, growing my own veggies, and reading profusely. At work I'm an auditor and manage quality systems, but what I really like to do is create fictional stories.
As a teenager, I planned to become a journalist, but life got in the way (marriage, kids, work) and I didn’t do much writing or reading for more than 13-years. Now I enjoy reading a variety of genres and especially love discovering new authors.
I have a curious mind and, in line with my motto, rarely say no to a new experience. They are all fodder for my books of course! I'm always on the lookout for an interesting character, a story that is begging to be told or a powerful internal conflict.
My writing journey
In 2009 I started to write my first novel; an Urban Fantasy called Golden Halo, which is the first in a trilogy. It took me 22-months and involved a very steep learning curve, and I thought I'd developed the tools needed. What a surprise to find that the next 2 books were still learning curves.
Now I've come to realise that I will never stop learning or refining my craft, but all you have to do to make your literary dreams come true is to believe in yourself and PERSIST.

Sandy in action...
Will Mya trust her heart, or face danger alone?
Chef Mya Jensen's plate is already full. She has her job, motorbike, kickboxing, and is the guardian of her disabled mother. She doesn't need a man in her life, especially her cocky new neighbor, Detective Luca Patterson, linking her to his latest investigation.
Luca has never crossed a professional line - until he meets Mya. She is sexy, feisty and so many kinds of wrong, but he can't stop thinking about her. Maybe because every time he's onto a lead in his latest jewellery counterfeit case, her name pops up. But is she a victim or a suspect?
While being targeted by an old foe who is hell-bent on revenge, an unexpectedly sizzling interlude with Luca puts Mya's desires and needs at odds. Will this independent woman try to fight her way out of this one, or finally open her heart?
How far would you go to save a child that wasn’t yours?
Mild-mannered kindergarten teacher, Neve Botticelli, leads a double life. At home with her paranoid father, she is a combat trained survivalist who lives off-the-grid.
When self-made billionaire, Micah Kincaid, storms into town in search of his four-year-old son, Rowan, he’s pushy, entitled, and stands for everything Neve despises.
But something far more sinister than a cheating estranged wife, is lurking in rural Turners Gully, and it has its sights set on little Rowan’s inheritance. It turns out there is one thing Micah and Neve can agree on, and that’s keeping Rowan safe.
As they work together to free Rowan, they glimpse beneath one another’s guises. Falling in love could be even more dangerous than hunting deadly criminals.
