Sandra Hurst – Author

meHi, my name is Sandra Hurst and I’m the author of the Sky Road fantasy series.

As a child in England, stories and legends surrounded me, I learned how important imagination was. When I was eight, we moved to northern Canada and the legends changed. Stories of the Fae and the little people were replaced by legends of the Thunderbird and stories of the woodlands.yketa4

I never stood a chance.

What could I be but a writer?

Growing up in Northern Alberta gave me a great love and respect for the wildlands and indigenous cultures which made its way into the worlds I create. A mythmaker at heart, I started writing poetry in middle school and graduated to epic fantasy.

Loosely based on North American legend, with colours reminiscent of the works of Guy Gavriel Kay or J. R. R. Tolkien, my first book, Y’keta,  is an epic fantasy set in an ancient world,  where legends walk and the Sky Road offers a way to the stars.

I now live in Calgary, Alberta with my husband and son, both of whom I love dearly, and have put up for sale on e-bay when their behaviour demanded it.  My day to day life is a balance between my outside life as a paralegal counsellor and my inner life as an author/poet. In between, I work on improving my writing, studying the history and languages, writing book reviews, and blogging on my website.
