Profile Information

Something About Me and My Book:
Sandra Carrington-Smith is an Italian-born author who relocated to the United States in the late 80’s after marrying a US soldier who was serving overseas. Although writing was Sandra’s deepest passion since childhood, her dream of becoming a published author had to be placed on hold for several years. Moving to a new country provided several challenges, the biggest one being the language barrier she encountered when she first arrived. In order to become fully integrated, Sandra tapped into her love for reading, and over time her vocabulary grew extensively. She gave birth to three children and devoted most of her time to raising a family. By the time she was in her late 30’s, Sandra decided to revisit her old passion for writing, and penned a novel of paranormal suspense, The Book of Obeah, followed by a self-improvement book, Housekeeping for the Soul: A Practical Guide to Restoring Your Inner Sanctuary. Both titles were sold to the same publisher and released in 2010, and The Book of Obeah went on to win an international book award. Currently, Sandra is working on two new novels: The Rosaries (the sequel of The Book of Obeah) and Shadows of a Tuscan Moon. Sandra Carrington-Smith lives in Raleigh, NC, with her husband, children and three cats. Her new southern novel, Killer in Sight (A Tom Lackey Mystery) was launched on June 16, 2012.

March 6-13 -- Read An E-Book Week!

I had no idea there was such a thing as a "Read an E-Book Week", but given that we have days to celebrate everything under the sun, it doesn't sound like a bad idea after all.

In fact, I think it is the perfect opportunity for new authors to get the proverbial foot in the door and introduce their books. Many people are scared to buy books from authors they haven't read before, and who can blame them?  We all agree that $10 to $20 are a lot of money to spend on a book you know nothing… Continue

Eye on New Orleans: Katrina's Other Orphans

As we continue our Hooked on the Book campaign, we would like to take the time to honor yet another category of Louisiana residents -- our four-legged friends. During Hurricane Katrina many animals were lost and separated from their families. Thanks to the effort of the Louisiana SPCA, many were able to be reunited with their original families, while others were placed in new loving homes.

As we approach the fifth anniversary of Katrina, I am… Continue

"The Dream House: Visions and Nightmares" by Victoria Roder - A Book Review

I ran into Victoria Roder’s novel, The Dream House: Visions and Nightmares, quite accidentally: While following a discussion on the Amazon forum which encouraged authors to pitch their books, I read a short synopsis of this story and immediately felt drawn to it.

The Dream House tells the story of Hope Graham, a woman who, night after night, is haunted by a recurring dream taking place in her childhood home. Concerned about her physical and mental wellness, she decides to visit the… Continue

I'll certainly look forward to reading it, Sandra. And I'm happy you found a place for it.

Also, if you don't mind reading crime fiction, some with a touch of paranormal(but not all and not strongly),you might, if you haven't already, try something by James Lee Burke, especially his Dave Robicheaux stories. They're set in south La. and feature a sheriff's detective with a colorful past.

Hi, Sandra,

     I didn't read the entire above synopsis, but what I did of it sounds good. I like most anything set in South Louisiana, anyway, long as it's not too far out.

     Have you tried any publishers with it?

I see your in North Carolina. The opening of the book takes place in Waynesville. We passed throught Cataloochie Mountain years ago and I fell in love. I always knew that if I ever wrote a book, I'd have to include it.

Thanks! The Light of Asteria is a young adult fantasy that I wrote for my daughter. She loved it and her friends wanted a copy, several revisions and a whole lot of prayer later and voila! Here I am talking to you fine people on a site I would have never found otherwise. I love the way life works :-)

My pleasure Sandra. Thanks for accepting and taking the time to scan. I appreciate it. Good to know I'm not the only one who lives on a different planet - lol! Pleasure meeting you as well. At your leisure, feel free to get a better view of things we probably have in common at my website @ and at HubPages!

Be well,
