I’m a lover of all things romance – novels, poetry, flowers and chocolate (Snickers and chocolate covered peanuts are my favorite). I also love visiting romantic destinations – the sunny beaches of the Caribbean and romantic European cities including London and Paris. My idea of heaven – a comfy lawn chair on the beach in the shade of a palm tree, with a sizzling romance novel and a pina colada. When I’m not writing I’m studying Psychology. I find the field of study fascinating. My book shelves are loaded with the stuff (right next to tons of romance novels). Reading is my life!

Sandra is the USA Today Bestselling Author of sexy, award-winning romances. Her heroes are Alphas and her stories will touch your heart.
I live in New England now but I was born in New York City and lived in or near the city most of my life. It’s where I met my husband–I was fifteen and a senior in high school! He was at both my high school and college graduations. We have a lot of shared, wonderful history.
After we married, I taught elementary school for a while. Then I settled into being a wife and mother but the desire to write was always there. I’d written short stories when I was little–the first, which I illustrated myself, I wrote when I was seven! I never really stopped writing and one day I looked in the mirror and said, “Okay, Sandra, you’ve always wanted to be a published writer. Maybe it’s time you did something about it.”
I’d always been interested in the complex ways in which men and women relate to each so it seemed natural to start writing romance fiction. I wrote short stories and sold several of them. Finally, I took a deep breath, sat down and wrote my very first novel. To my amazement and joy, Harlequin Presents bought it.
