About the Author                                               

Sandy Hill was bitten by the writing bug after winning first place in her school's writing competition. After a career as a data analyst and mission controller on the NASA Pioneer space shot to Jupiter, and a programmer and a software saleswoman, Sandy took on a second career. She married Gene and became an instant mom to a daughter and a son. In retirement, she launched into a third career as a children’s writer. Challenged by the plight of trafficked children, Sandy and Gene created a nonprofit organization,, and Sandy became a speaker against child trafficking. Sandy and her husband create award-winning photographs, and they donate profits from the sale of their photographs and Sandy’s books to help the children. Today, she delights in sharing time with four grandchildren. They enjoy sailing Puget Sound near their home in Washington. Over 40 years ago Sandy accepted Jesus Christ as her Savior and Lord of her life.
