For more than a decade, Sandra D. Bricker lived in Los Angeles. While honing her chosen craft of screenwriting in every spare moment, she worked as a personal assistant and publicist to some of daytime television’s hottest stars. When her mother became ill in Florida, she walked away from that segment of her life and moved across the country to take on a new role as Caregiver. “I guess most people would see my career as a publicist for the soaps as a sort of dream job, but giving it up turned out to be the best thing that could have happened to me!” she declares. That’s when she combined her love of books with her passion for writing, and a reader favorite was born! She has written three novels for middle-grade readers and several romance novels, including Wish I Weren’t Here, Love Finds You in Snowball, Arkansas, The Big 5-0H!, and the Emma Rae Creations series.
Sandie’s real-life role as cancer survivor has parlayed into her steadfast commitment to raising awareness and funds for ovarian cancer research. Spearheading a series of devotionals for Summerside Press (such as the popular His Grace is Sufficient…Decaf is Not), the author has stipulated that a portion of each contributor’s proceeds will go to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.
