sandramoran “I write because . . . I can’t not write. Stories are everywhere and I find myself fascinated with why people do the things they do. Heck, I’m fascinated by why I do the things I do.” — Sandra Moran


Sandra Moran was an author and assistant adjunct professor of anthropology at Johnson County Community College in Overland Park, Kansas. A native Kansan, she had worked professionally as a newspaper journalist, a political speech writer, and an archaeological tour manager. In her novels, she strove to create flawed characters struggling to find themselves within the cultural constructs of gender, religion, and sexuality. Despite being an avid marathon/ultra marathon runner, gym rat, and living healthy, she lost her battle to an aggressive cancer in November 2015, just weeks shy of her forty-seventh birthday.
