A Writer of Blogs, Poetry, and Middle Grade Fiction
"Why Faeries Bite"
My First Poetry Collection
Do faerie tales apply to motherhood? Sandra Hughes explores themes of risk and redemption through a lens of literature in language that mothers can especially relate to.
Recognizing that the gift of words is meant to be shared as part of a great feast of creativity, Hughes beautifully applies literary Truth to her personal experience in order to show the rest of us how it can be done.

Why Faeries Bite, Poems and stories from RockRiver Hill is a collection of vibrant poems that journey through the mysteries of life and beyond. Hughes draws us into her world as she brings the common into such great detail it becomes new again. Her words transport us to where she is, seeing what she sees, feeling what she feels. Why Faeries Bite is a gift from the heart of a daughter, sister, mother, wife and child of the most high God.

Middle Grade Fantasy Fiction
Twins. Megaliths. Selkies. Talking Otters.
I am a poet and fiction writer in the wild and scenic Kern River Valley.
Creative writing is the way I emulate my maker, and I pray that my writing can bless its readers and reveal timeless Truths in a new way.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts in English from California Baptist University, and spent the first 6 years of my working life as a High School English/Drama/Yearbook teacher.
In 2012, I retired from teaching to focus on my next great challenge: raising my four beautiful children. While I raise these beautiful masterpieces, I am preparing for my third career as an author.
I write poetry, creative nonfiction, and middlegrade fantasy fiction.
