About Me…

8E3A3624I grew up in Northwest Louisiana, but have strong Cajun roots (Southern Louisiana) on both sides of my family. I  live in the Atlanta suburbs with my dentist husband and near-adult children, plus a few furry creatures.

I love to cook and I adore food. I play tennis, but don’t exercise nearly enough. I write Southern romantic women’s fiction. It’s a rare day when I run short of words. I’m a member of the Georgia Romance Writers and Romance Writers of America. I’m represented by Inkwell Management.

I would love to hear from my readers on Facebook, Twitter, or at snsands@gmail.com.

Thanks for stopping by!

Easy King Cake

Ingredients:

1 can Grands Cinnamon Rolls

1 container each of colored sugar in yellow, green and purple

Don’t separate when removing them from can. Form a ring from the dough. Bake as directed and ice cake immediately. Sprinkle sugars on before icing cools so it will stick!

Okay folks, how easy is that? Say thank you to my friend, Stacie!

Happy Mardi Gras!
