    Sandra Orchard

    Sandra Orchard writes romantic suspense set along the northern shores of Lake Erie in the heart of Canada’s Niagara region, where she lives with her husband of almost 25 years, their college-age children, and their incorrigible pup. Sandra loves trying new things. Over the years she’s dabbled in a variety of arts and crafts and renovation projects from building a run-in for her daughter’s horse to re-siding their first house. Since a clean kitchen was only ever one meal away from being a mess again, she has always preferred doing something more substantial. Although she majored in math at university, and went on to teach high school math before starting a family, she admits to dreaming of becoming a writer from a young age. As a home educator, she wrote how-to articles and curriculum reviews, but she didn’t imagine herself capable of writing fiction. Then after her mother died, she discovered inspirational romance. Seeing characters overcome the same kind of emotions she was facing gave her inspiration and hope. So when her husband, frustrated by the growing book piles, suggested she write her own, little did he know what he’d started!

    She loves to connect with readers, and has created “extras” such as on location, deleted scenes, and character interviews to enhance their experience of her books. Check out these and other resources for both readers and writers at her website: .
