them and equally loves to write about them. She and her husband did a lot of four-wheeling in the back country of Colorado. Sandy wrote a community news column in a small newspaper for twelve years, a few magazine articles and two novels with adventure, mystery, romance, but most importantly sharing God’s love. She is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers and has two books out. Married for 40 years, she and her husband love life as grandparents to three after the big move to Texas.

Welcome, Sandy. If you could have dinner with one person from today or history (except Jesus) who would it be? Why?
This is always a challenging question, because there’s so many. I’ll be a little different. At this point in life, and with the bombardment of news, I would choose Mike Rowe. I think he is one of the funniest guys out there and highly intelligent. Not to mention an amazing singer. It would be a hoot and certainly a diversion from all the bad going on in the world, to sit down and have dinner with that guy.

Where is your favorite vacation spot?
We were blessed to spend 10 days on the Grand Cayman several years ago. It was my first experience with snorkeling. Being a land-loving, chicken in water, this was a big step for me in my list of adventures. My hubby and brother-in-law were there with me. I had a death grip on my hubby’s arm and threatened him if he swam away from my side, but once they got me in that crystal clear water and I put my masked face under the surface, I didn’t need anyone. To see an entirely different world filled with vibrant colored fish, coral of every shape and size, creatures I never could have imagined, and so many exciting things, it was the most magical time of my life. During that week, we experienced the adventure of our lives daily. Even having a nurse shark swim below us (that was a little too exciting, since I didn’t understand that was a harmless one at the time), and Moray Eels, lobsters, Eagle Rays and then one day we swam with Stingrays. It was so exhilarating.

Do you have a dedicated place to write, or a nook or corner of a room, or the kitchen table?
These days, I have a few. I have an office. A really nice one. I also write in the recliner with my lap top most often. But I look forward to writing on our back porch now that the weather has cooled off in Texas. We moved here from Colorado last January. From March through June it was fabulous out back. On the right is a picture of the view I have. It’s very relaxing.

What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?
Tell ALL their friends and please write a review on Amazon or any other ordering site. Give them as books. Say something on your Facebook page. Tweet about it. Just spread the word! I would appreciate that so much! In fact, do this for any author. It helps a writer’s career.

Please tell us a little about your novel, Rescue Me.
First Responder Ronnie Spencer has a no-dating- firefighters rule. She lost her father to a fire, and
won't risk the heartbreak of losing someone else. But when Steve McNeal returns, Ronnie's heart is tested. How can she swear off dating a firefighter when she has to work with the one man she used to love?

When the unthinkable happens, Ronnie has doubts. How can a loving God allow tragedy to stalk her life again? As her faith wavers, Ronnie must decide. Will their blossoming relationship be quickly extinguished by the very thing she feared, or will Ronnie trust God and allow her heart to be rescued—even if that means giving it to a firefighter?

  3. My most exciting adventure was going to Colombia, South America when we adopted our son. Being in the big city of Bogotá was an eye opener for us. So much poverty all around us.

  4. My most exciting adventure was when I spent 2 weeks in China. I visited friends who were teaching in schools over there. I'm glad I went when I did because the following year they both retired and moved back to the States. I am a follower.
