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 found something to love in each of them. 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.
                 After a lifetime of reading, how could I not try my hand at writing? It took me a while though. I was a real late bloomer, a grandmother before a published writer. Why so long? I honestly don’t know. I think I had to reach a certain age before I had the confidence to put myself out there. I am so glad I finally took the plunge. Few things have given me as much pleasure as writing. As for what I write, read on …
                  Jennie Connors is the Activities Directors in a retirement community where the residents are lively, alert, and not adverse to helping Jennie solve the occasional murder. These fun-filled stories explore the challenges facing a single mother as she learns to balance independence with family and career responsibilities – all while dealing with some very sassy seniors and two young sons.

Jennie Connors Mysteries-fill

              Love and Not Destroy 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, a 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.  An Uncertain Path continues Peace’s journey to self-discovery and pits her against a different kind of adversary.

               I’ve also written a number of short stories that 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.

    Hi Sandy–
    Your Jennie Connors Mysteries sound like a hoot. I’ll have to add them to my reading list. I’m glad you starting writing and sharing your stories. Keep at it.

    In response to your question, What are you reading now, I’m reading to books, Brit Marie was Here and Fifty Years on the Old Frontier by James H. Cook. The book is excellent for a western historical writer like me, but I think most readers would find it interesting.

      Thanks, Mary, for stopping by. I agree that most readers would find the frontier tale interesting. There’s something universal in those stories of the mythical old west.
