On a personal note...

Sandra's Grandbabies
Grandma's Christmas Angels

"I was born on St.

Patrick's Day and once
found a four-leaf clover. 
I'm inspired by blue-
birds, thunderstorms,
the Big Dipper and sun-
shine on new-fallen
snow.  Popcorn is my
ideal snack.  I
married my high-school
sweetheart and thank
God that our love has
endured.  I savor the
aroma of a new box of
tea bags. I’ve written
more than three-dozen
novels and raised four
sons who are my
heroes. I’m a morning
person who’s fascinated
by the phases of the
moon. I choose my
friends, shoes and
dessert carefully.  I love
my daughters-in-law,
and am head-over-heels
over my grandbabies.   
Grey’s Anatomy is my
favorite TV show. I
love that I don’t have to
leave the house to go to
work. Hearing from
readers makes my day."
