Sandra Blair started writing years ago when her sister dared her to enter the National Novel Writing Month.  She wrote only a novella that month but gained a steadfast love of writing.

Sandra writes both children and adult short stories and flash fiction. Her adult short story, “Raw Chicken, placed 10th and her children’s story, “Sun, Rain, Snuggle Down”, placed Honorable Mention in the 2016 Atlantis Short Story Contest. Both winning stories were published on the Atlantis website. She also was a finalist in the 2016 Wow! Women on Writing Short Story contest.

Sandra has been drawing her whole life.  She has taken classes at the University of Texas at Austin and the Laguna Gloria Art School.

Sandra wrote, illustrated and published Alphabet Animals and I Spy the Texas State Symbols.  She also illustrated and published with her mother-in-law Compilation of West Texas Sayings.

Sandra lives in Austin with her husband, two teenage children and a couple of dogs.  She grew up in Houston and graduated from the University of Texas at Austin.  In Galveston, she obtained a medical degree at UTMB, but is now a fulltime illustrator and writer. When not writing or illustrating, she enjoys reading, gardening, acting and spending time with her family.
