Sandy 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, children, and three cats in the city, she still manages to grow fruit and vegetables on their lot, as well as tend to three egg-laying and friendly hens. Someday, she hopes to add bees to the collection.

Ms. Smith is a member of ALLi (The Alliance of Independent Authors) and of her local seed bank. She gardens and writes at her home in the beautiful and green Pacific Northwest.

A licensed ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher, Ms. Smith has enjoyed teaching students from around the world.
