I was born and raised in New Hampshire, where I still reside, so I’m a true New Englander through and through.
I knew at a young age that writing was my passion. I started writing poetry when I was only 8. During summer vacations from school, I’d sit on the front steps of my tenement building and write books. Each day, the other kids in the neighborhood would gather and I’d read the next installment to them. I also started keeping a journal when I was 12, and have continued to do so every day since. My journals are like having my own time machine. I can tell you what I ate for breakfast back on Nov. 2, 1963!
For over 20 years, I worked as a newspaper correspondent and photographer for the Hooksett Banner. Since 1984, I have been interpreting dreams in my weekly newspaper column, "Dreams...with Sally Breslin," and since 1994, have been writing a weekly humor column, "My Life," both of which are published in four New England Newspapers. In 1996, I was named the New Hampshire Press Association’s columnist of the year. I also have taught humor-writing classes for Concord Community Education.
My stories have been published in the bestsellers, A SECOND CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE WOMAN'S SOUL, CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE SOUL AT CHRISTMAS, and BELLY LAUGHS AND BABIES.
Although I was raised as a devout city slicker, I currently live way out in the country with my husband and two Rottweilers, who are my faithful hiking companions. I love the country – but I can do without the mosquitoes and ticks!

When you’re a 12-year-old city slicker whose hobbies are chasing the ice-cream truck, developing movie-star crushes and anticipating your first kiss, the last place you want to spend your summer vacation is with your parents in a rustic cabin in the New Hampshire wilderness. Journey back to 1962, when I, along with my city friend, Janet, learned all about nature...and country boys.
