About Sally Brandle

Sally and her horse

In a Nutshell

Dodging male offspring and her functionally adept engineer husband, Sally steals away to her office to free non-princess types residing in her brain. Her trusty German Shepherd rescue pup, Maggie, gives her input as the adventures unfold.

Childhood in rural Michigan, family, friends, critters and travel stateside and abroad feed the speed of her fingers to the keys. When stalling occurs, she heads to Lance, her trusty steed stabled close to miles of wooded trails. Off they go for a head-clearing ride in fresh air, or a note session while the big gelding grazes.

Sally is a member of Eastside Romance Writers and She Writes.

She invites you to sit back, get comfy and prepare to drop into her stories.
