Sandra grew up in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, the second of four sisters, and was raised to believe it was possible to fulfill her dream of having a successful career, a happy marriage, and to raise a loving family. While that dream lasted for a long time, it didn’t last forever. That’s when she decided to write Unliving the Dream. Sandra wanted a main character who would find her way through the challenges of divorce with humor and a spirit of resiliency to bounce back better than ever! Her hope is to inspire women to realize that divorce is not the end - that if you let it, it can be the greatest new beginning! Unliving the Dream was published in 2016. When she’s not out promoting her book, she’s a blogger for the Huffington Post, a family woman, and a better than average gal pal to some very awesome women. Whether traveling the world with friends, binge watching reality TV, or writing her next article, Sandra’s a woman who is grateful for both the good and bad that life has brought her.
