Sandy Wickersham-McWhorter


A native of Muncie, Indiana, Sandy has lived in north-central Ohio since 1973 and has been an LPN since 1980. She has her husband of 34 years, two sons, a daughter-in-law, two granddaughters, two dogs, and an odd number of goldfish in her outdoor pond all living with her in an 1890s home that was a general store\post office. Fortunately, only her dog has commandeered her writer’s cave so far. Sandy became a writer in third grade, when she started turning her dreams and nightmares into short stories (she still has that notebook). Science fiction classics and comic books were her reading mainstay; as an adult, she added historical fiction then romances in the ‘80s. The adult writing bug bit her in 1990 after a comment by her oldest son, so when she realized she needed cheap nursing CEUs, and the degree most writers seem to have, Ohio State University beckoned. While earning a bachelor’s in English, she wrote for three newspapers and was a feature writer for Choice, a Christian magazine. While writing romance, science fiction, inspirational, women’s fiction and a mix of them all, Sandy substitutes in local schools, teaches college English 101 in local prisons, gardens, and does many types of artwork when there’s time.
