About Sandra Thompson

Sandra grew up in Sydney, Australia as a black-haired girl with two blonde sisters. She was not adopted, despite what they told her. She first discovered her passion for writing in primary school when she was forced to write a short story for a school assignment. She was surprised to discover that she really enjoyed it and began to read and write avidly.

After graduating from university in Sydney, Sandra began working as a full-time statistician. Her days were filled with number crunching, whilst her evenings were filled with Fiona’s exciting supernatural adventures as she wrote the first book of the Dusk Duo series, The Ghostly Grammar Boy.

Sandra now lives in Tokyo, Japan where she is continuing to work as a daytime statistician and a nighttime author. She is currently working on book two of the Dusk Duo series, The Deadly School Camp.

‘Hai!’ Sandra also speaks some Japanese and is learning a lot about Japanese culture by making lots of mistakes. She writes about her experiences on her blog and is also working on a romantic suspense novel set in Tokyo called The Sakura Vacancy.

Sandra really appreciates the support of her readers. You can find her online at

I really enjoyed reading it!
The further I read, the more puzzled I get to figure out how the story ends. It was such a good read!
This book has the high girl's school life, supernatural power, romance, action, suspense and more!
I tried to read it slowly to give me more time to enjoy the reading, but as it went towards to the last several chapters, I couldn't resist turning pages to find out what would happen next.
I'm really looking forward to your future books!

I heard about The Ghostly Grammar Boy through the Sandra Thompson's hilarious blog and downloaded it on a whim. I ended up reading it over the weekend and was very impressed. Towards the end there is quite a lot of action and I couldn’t put the book down! The characters are realistic and their high school dramas are very amusing. The supernatural element is interesting too and well executed without being cheesy. 5 stars from me, I will definitely continue following this author and look forward to future books.

It's a fun read!
Effectively aided me in some procrastination and kept me up past my bed time.
I learned a few new Aussie spellings (e.g. "kerb", "maths") but my favorite part was when something was described as being as difficult as finding a clean pair of socks in her brother's rugby bag. Haha!

A nice little supernatural melodrama for teen readers. The plots ticks along well with just the right number of twists and turns, but what makes the book so enjoyable is the way that the author brings together the different spheres of her protagonists experience. Familiar teen gripes with family, friends, crushes and the high school pecking order bring light and shade to the supernatural dramas that punctuate the hapless Fiona's life.

Review by: Aedephon Delat on Sep. 16, 2013 :
Good book! The author has a natural and funny style. It starts slowly as the characters are introduced and the suspense builds, but then really pics up the pace. The characters are well written and their emotions seemed very real.

The quality of the writing and editing was very good, especially compared to most books in this price category.

I would definitely recommend it!
