Sandra Rose Simmons' debut novel "Moon Glow" was published in 2016. Her short story "The Hobo Shack" won the 2017 Tempe Writers' Contest for Adult Fiction and is featured in the Tempe Writers Forum, Volume 3. A former teacher, social worker, administrator and consultant, she is inspired by people and their struggles to not only survive, but thrive and find meaning in life.
My stories reflect my interests in nature, travel, hiking, dancing and spirituality. Family and friendships have played a major role in my life and helped me maintain balance and perspective as I navigated the difficulties of being a working single mother and caregiver to my elderly parents and life partner.
