Sandy Nygaard is a part-time CPA, a part-time writer, and a full time mom. Possessing little patience for either the tax code or parenting guidebooks, she keeps a tenuous grip on her sanity by writing. Her short stories and humorous essays focus on the quirks of small town life and have been published in numerous magazines and newspapers. She’s a native of the Pacific Northwest, acquiring the bulk of her small town experience in Dallas, Oregon, supplemented by a stint in Omak, Washington.
Sandy has a BS from Oregon State University in Microbiology, which is mostly useless in either of her professions. She’s been a Camp Fire Girl, a 4-H member, a Job’s Daughter, an athlete (track) a church treasurer, and a PTA fundraiser, all of which provide immense fodder for her writing.
She currently lives with her husband and two kids in the suburban wastelands east of Seattle.
