Featured Author Stories

One of my greatest joys is guiding authors in a variety of genres as well as their own definitions of success. From time to time, I feature them here.

Sandra Fernandez Rhoads, SciFi/Fantasy Author

Sandra Fernandez Rhoads is an YA author, born in Queens, New York to Cuban-Colombian parents. She grew up in Texas with a love for classical art and literature, particularly Renaissance artists and Late Romantic poets. After attending the University of Texas at Austin, she went on to earn an MA in her seventeenth century crush, John Milton. Sandra also has a background in acting, directing, as well as previous script writing experience for stage and short film. Every story she writes is linked to classical works, whether woven through the story or a modern retelling.

Sandra has a deep love for the artist community and is an active member of Art House Dallas. She dreams of one day learning to play the theme to Jurassic Park on her cello named Lysander. When she’s not dreaming up fantastical worlds or challenging her characters to over come impossible obstacles, she loves seeking new adventures to fuel her imagination and occasionally swings a tennis racquet without injuring herself or others.

MORTAL SIGHT was Sandra’s award-winning debut novel in the Colliding Lines Series. Its sequel, REALMS OF LIGHT is also recognized with literary awards. You can see the book trailer here.
