She spent her single years in San Francisco and considers that city one of America's treasures, comparable to no other city in the world. Her California Series, starting out with Winter Interlude, are all set in the Bay Area. Her series consists of fun, heartwarming stories about crazy friends who, like single people everywhere, are seeking that someone special to share their lives with among thousands of eligible candidates.

Sandy recently published her first Romantic Suspense novel, The Sin Factor, set in another wonderful US city, Washington, DC. She has since published two more, both set in fictional towns in Kentucky to give a reader a feel for small town living. Running Out Of Fear's setting showcases the state's caves and lakes. All have heart-stopping suspense and are full of the twists and turns she loves. Sandy also doesn't skimp on the romance.
