About Sandy Reay

Sandy Reay was the first woman full-service gas station attendant in Colorado. She raced cars, ran rivers in rubber rafts, worked as an engineering draftsman, lived on a horse ranch in the mountains, took photographs professionally, went pony-trekking along the banks of Loch Ness, played bass in bar and bluegrass bands and at Renaissance festivals and Victorian dances, adopted more than a dozen adult dogs (and five cats), and learned to make silver jewelry.

An English/Education major in college, she spent over forty years writing in cryptic languages to communicate with alien beings known as computers. In the mid-1990s, she started writing songs and poems. Two of her poems were accepted by anthologies and two more were published on a now-defunct web site. She spent fifteen years writing monthly columns on web sites, amd a few of those columns were reproduced in real magazines with shiny pages. Other people performed and recorded a number of her songs, and DJs played almost a dozen of those recordings.

Spurred on by her lukewarm success with poetry, non-fiction and songs, she starting writing novels, novellas, and short stories because the voices in her head told her to. She's currently working on at least half a dozen novels & novellas, a few short stories, and a heart-wrenching memoir (which may be completed in her lifetime). Her flash fiction, Damn the Dream, was accepted in the 2022 Pikes Peak Writers anthology, Dream.

Her critique partners Roberta and Jim, her alpha readers Tom and Nadia, and her editor Ed, encouraged the voices. But, she still hasn't decided what she wants to be when she grows up.
