I was born and grew up in Missouri, surrounded by a family who loved stories, whether from a book or told on the front porch. I’ve lived in various cities in different parts of the country and can honestly say I’ve loved them all. I’m currently living in a picture-perfect small town just north of Philadelphia. Wherever I’ve gone, books have been the bridge to my new community and new friends. I’m the author of the Jennie Connors mystery series: Left at Oz, Put Out the Light, Consider the Lilly, By Whose Hand, and the recently released, Lethal Journal.  These stories explore the challenges facing a single mother as she learns to balance independence with family and career responsibities – all while solving the occasional murder.

Love and Not Destroy introduces Peace Morrow and examines the ways in which destiny is shaped by family secrets. It is set in a museum of antique tools and folk art in a small town near Philadelphia. The protagonist is Peace Morrow, print versiona young woman who was found in a basket as an infant. Twenty-two years later, when a homeless man is murdered in exactly the same spot. Peace can’t believe it’s a coincidence and thus begins a search for identity that explores the nature of family, of loyalty and responsibility.

I’ve also written a number of short stories which are available as ebooks. These stories as well as my novels are described in more detail on my webpage.

    Hi Sandy,
    I’ve read two books so far from your series and loved them! I’ll soon be reading the remaining two…it’s great that you’ve lived in many different places. Such good fodder for your stories!

    You’re an amazing author, who writes with soul, Sandy. I’ve enjoyed many of your books and look forward to future books.

      Thanks, Carolyn. That’s high praise, especially coming from another author. Believe me, the admiration is mutual.

      Thanks so much, Loretta. Right back atcha about the books, especially loved The Witching Moon, with its combination of Irish mysticism and the heroics of the Old West – two proud traditions.

    That upbringing obviously led to a good imagination and much empathy. Both show in your writing. I’ve read two of your books and some of your short stories and thoroughly enjoyed them. I need to move another up on my TBR list. Keep up the good work, Sandy.
