Sally W. Trew was born and raised in Texas. In 1985 she married British photographer, Mark Trew. She and her family now live in East Texas. Sally made her first batch of soap in 2002 for her grandson but it was not a good experience. Since then she has become a master soap maker and owns and operated an online soap maker's supply business. For several years she has been teaching classes on soap making and other bath and body products. Remembering her first experience with making soap is why she decided to write these 2 books; CIG to Making Natural Soap and CIG to Making Natural Beauty Products. You can find Sally on facebook or on her soap maker's yahoo list, ApplesNBerries@yahoo.com. She is always glad to answer questions about making soap or bath and body products.
