About the author:
She is anything but ordinary. Although she has only been writing for the last several years, Sandra has already won several contests for her poems, has had one of her short stories chosen to be performed at The Pensacola Little Theater after Hurricane Ivan, was once invited to read at a poet’s convention in Washington, D.C., and is a graduate of The Institute of Children’s Literature. Sandra believes that she inherited her writing skills from her grandmother and father, who were also published writers.

Writing started out as a means of relaxation, a way to temporarily escape the difficult times. Soon, however, her talent became recognized, and her star began to rise.

She says it was her determination to finish what she starts, and her husband Bo’s instigation that got her poetry published in a book at a very early stage in her writing.

Riveting, sizzling, action packed; On Call by Sandra Hoynacki is a thriller you will not want to put down. The book is written as the recollections of a young nurse who gets herself involved in a sinister plan that takes on epic proportions. What started out as a dare between Jenny, the heroine, and her sidekick, Kathy who were just trying to make some extra money, turns out to be the beginning of their demise. These two young nurses from a sleepy little town in CaliMore ...
|As former administrative assistant to the |
manager of Siegfried & Roy and Muhammad Ali,
among others, I have learned to recognize true
talent. You are definitely a talented
storyteller and writer. On Call is
suspenseful, shocking, funny at times, and a
work that you want to keep reading and never
put down. I urge you to continue using your
talent. The world loves a good story, and On
Call delivers that in a big way.More ...
