Sandra Valencia has lived her entire life in the state of Ohio.
Growing up in a simple home with two brothers and two sisters, she always loved books. When classmates groaned over writing assignments, she relished new chances to put pencil to paper.
Also captivated by studies of foreign languages, she has studied several and enjoys added zest in her life from traveling abroad to meet new people and personally experience the wealth of different ideas and cultures.
From early childhood, she encountered a dramatic range of experiences commonly thought of as paranormal activity. Dreams, visions, precognition, and telekinesis are among only a few of the things that have sometimes frightened her, sometimes inspired her, and always fascinated her.
Those experiences provide a treasure chest of ideas and concepts that are included in her writing. Ms. Valencia consolidated two decades of dreams into the series, Legends from Turand. She has been both surprised and gratified to be contacted by readers from around the world, including Colombia, England, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, and Portugal.
