Whatever I haven’t yet written about! No seriously, I love to write about rugged places in the past, especially ones I have a personal connection to. Frontier stories, sweeping Medieval adventures, ocean voyages—these are my favorites. I like to think of the setting as a character so vital to the story that it can’t be set anywhere else. That said, I truly enjoy writing scenes that take place in castle chambers, caves and the woods. Anywhere that will cause the hero and heroine to get close and cozy!
Chivalrous. He can be wicked and a true scoundrel, but at the core, he must be good-hearted. I like a man who treats his lady love like a queen! My husband is like that—a little roguish, but with such a big heart.
I collect old books. I love to discover antique ones at auctions or flea markets. I have WAY too many. Also, I collect Toby mugs. They’re whimsical little jugs that look like literary characters. The Dickens ones are my favorites.
I’d love to travel to Wales since that’s my motherland! I’ve never been to Europe, but I’m determined to tour a castle someday. I’d also like to sail around the world in a yacht—but with a good captain, please!
How do you describe yourself? How would your family and friends describe you?
I’m an introvert. We own a cabin on a river. It’s very remote. There’s no other place I’d rather be. I love talking to my readers and chatting with my writing friends, but I’m more comfortable doing so on my computer.
What’s an interesting fact about Sandra?
During the Prohibition, my grandfather used to smuggle whiskey across the state line on the back of his Harley Davidson. He may have been an outlaw, but he did what it took to take care of my mother and the rest of the family. He helped inspire my gambling hero, Rory.
