Sandie Nygaard


Sandie Nygaard is a part-time C.P.A, a part-time writer and a full-time mom. Her writing focuses on the quirks and quibbles of small town life. She came by her experience honestly, living most of her childhood in rural towns with populations of less than 6,000. When she moved to Corvallis, Oregon (population 30,000) to attend college, she saw stop lights and buildings with elevators and thought she’d arrived in the big city.
Her heart still resides in the country, but life has deposited her into the suburban tangle east of Seattle. Writing, the proximity to hiking and skiing, and the discovery of Thai food have all worked to ease her transition to suburbia.
Her short stories and humorous essays have appeared in numerous publications. Her latest novel "How to Catch a Man" is available on Smashwords.
