About Sandy Reay
Sandy Reay was the first woman full-service gas station attendant in Colorado. She raced cars, ran rivers in rubber rafts, lived on a horse ranch in the mountains, went pony-trekking along the banks of Loch Ness, played bass in bar and bluegrass bands, and adopted more than a dozen adult dogs.
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. Other people performed and recorded some of her songs, and DJs played almost a dozen of those songs.
After fifteen years writing monthly columns on web sites (some of which were reproduced in real magazines with shiny pages), she starting writing prose because the voices in her head told her to.
Her flash fiction, Damn the Dream, was accepted in the 2022 Pikes Peak Writers anthology, Dream.
She's currently working on two novels, including the The Sinister Umbrella, and a heart-wrenching memoir, You Are the Road, which she hopes to complete while she finishes fifteen songs in progress.
