Hi, my name is Sandra Hurst and I write both Fantasy and Romance Novels
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.
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.
A young exile finds a place to belong, only to find his new home threatened by secrets from his past. If Y’keta reveals what he knows to the villagers, it will tear their history and traditions apart, but sharing his secrets may be their only hope for survival.
Y’keta is an epic fantasy set in an ancient world, where legends walk and the Sky Road offers a way to the stars.
A coming of age story with colours reminiscent of the early works of Guy Gavriel Kay or Piers Anthony.
Brent Harrington is gone and Cyn Redman really couldn’t give a rat’s ass. While the whole town celebrates or mourns the end of the Harrington dynasty, Cyn’s life is falling apart. Her mother has recently been diagnosed with cancer, throwing Cyn’s heart, as well as her future plans into turmoil.
The last thing Cyn is looking for is Jericho, the quiet, soft-spoken ranch hand from the McBride place. Between the clinic closing, her mom’s health, and Cyn’s long-delayed college plans, there are already too many uncertainties. Could Jericho be the anchor she needs so desperately as her world falls apart? Or is he just another excuse not to let go of Peace and move on.
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.
Thank you for walking the Sky Road with me.
I look forward to seeing you for the next adventure.
