Cedar Sanderson was born a military brat in Nebraska and spent her childhood enroute to new duty stations. Her formative years after her father left the Air Force were spent being home-schooled on the Alaskan frontier. She removed to the "more urban" climes of New Hampshire at the beginning of high school. She has had the usual eclectic range of jobs for Fantasy/ SF authors, ranging from balloon twister and body artist to apprentice shepherdess. She counts the latter as more useful in keeping track of her four children and First Reader. Her fascination with science dates to her early childhood, spent with her grandmother on the Oregon coast studying the flora and fauna and learning to prepare a meal from what she could glean from a tidal pool and the Pacific Rainforest. This led to a lifelong interest in science, cooking, and becoming a tough old lady.
Having finished college in Ohio to secure a BS in Forensic Science and Investigation, she is now kickstarting a new career while running a household, an art and design business, and writing multiple novels on the side with occasional forays into coloring books and children’s stories. This has the result of leaving those watching her indefatigable efforts panting in exhaustion.
