About Sandra Smith

Sandra Smith grew up on a farm with a tremendously large garden. She maintains that if you can't taste the soil on a carrot, it's not fresh enough. Although she now lives with her husband and two elderly cats in the city, she still manages to grow fruit and vegetables on their lot, as well as tend to a couple of egg-laying and friendly hens.

Smith has been writing since she could hold a pencil, although the lettering she left on her grandmother's books sometimes contained a reverse capital R. In high school, she won awards for her poetry and short stories, and later was an editor on her college newspaper. Upon graduating with a degree in Communication Arts, Smith accepted a job at a small newspaper in eastern Oregon. She later declined the offer, choosing instead to teach English in China. Though she had an idea for a novel or memoir back then, the only writing produced were the many letters home detailing her exploits to friends and relatives.

After China, Smith spent many years teaching in private and public schools, filling hoards of notebooks with her writing--though mostly lesson plans. Along the way, she has written essays, newspaper articles, children's books, and poetry, very little of which she bothered to publish.

Smith is the author of the Seed Savers series, a middle grade/YA series set in a future where gardening is illegal and real food unknown. She gardens and writes at her home in the beautiful and green Pacific Northwest.

Reviews of Seed Savers-Treasure by Sandra Smith

H S reviewed on July 30, 2019

I loved this book! Don't be put off if you find it described as "dystopian". I mean, it is - the government has banned growing your own food and is arresting anybody found doing it - but it's not horrific or violent like you'd usually get wtih dystopian fiction. I loved that the Bible was used as a basis for teaching the children about seeds and growing food, and my heart was in my mouth during their adventure after they fled their home. It'd be a great book for children... and as I said above, I loved it. I just bought the next three books in the series on the strength of this one, so that ought to tell you something.
