Sandra Nickel grew up being fascinated by words and their meanings, with the dictionary being her most likely choice of bed-time reading. As she grew older, she discovered—and fell in love with—the Gothic novels of the 19th Century. Her continued love of the genre led to the writing of her first work, a YA Gothic ghost story set in a French chateau. Sandra is currently working on a middle grade novel that is part mystery-part boarding school story-part girls saving the day!
Sandra holds bachelor degrees in Theology and Social Work, a juris doctorate in Law, a Diplôme de Langue from the Alliance Française, a certificate in film production from NYU, and an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts. Born in Kansas, she later lived in New York City, Moscow and Paris, before settling in a village above Lake Geneva, Switzerland, where she currently lives with her husband and daughter.
