About the Author
Appreciating the wonders of God's creation has always been a favorite pastime for Sandy Dengler
. She remembers spending a great deal of time as a child exploring the wood lots around her parent's home in Sidney, Ohio.
Sandy's interest in nature greatly influenced her life as she grew older, as well. After receiving her undergraduate degree at Bowling Degree State University in 1961, she went on to receive a Master's in desert ecology at Arizona State University. One of her courses required that she do a detailed study on one of the major deserts of the world; she chose Australia. As time went by she learned to love this rugged country&a love that is captured quite vividly in her AUSTRALIAN DESTINY series. This is a continuation of THE CODE OF HONOR, a romantic tale of life in the Australian outback and set in the early 1900's.
"elements were somehow more elemental in the past and people lived closer to them. Our todays are so tied to the past," notes Sandy. And, by using the medium of historical fiction, she enjoys the best of both worlds: teaching truths from God's Word, touching lives as she does so, and being able to absorb herself in her writing as she "prowls the starkly beautiful woods and deserts of yesterday."
Sandy and her husband, a park service naturalist, make their home in Washington State, where she continues to write.
