In her career, Sandra Ardoin has been blessed to have published various forms of inspirational writing.
She will never forget her first writing sale over twenty years ago—an inspirational poster quote. She’s sold numerous others, most for educational purposes, including one that appeared on a tee shirt and another in a movie. At one time, you may have sent someone a greeting card with one of her sentiments.
She’s written devotions for adults and children. And her light verse has appeared in The Saturday Evening Post, Cappers, and shows up occasionally on the Cracker Barrel page of Mature Living.
But fiction has always been the heart of Sandra’s writing. Her short stories have appeared in both adult and juvenile denominational publications. In 2000, Keys for Kids used four of her children’s devotions for The One Year Book of Devotions for Girls and The One Year Book of Devotions for Boys (published by Tyndale House).
Pauline Books and Media chose her short story, “Get A Clue,” as part of their Family Ties short story collection released in the spring of 2010.
She joined American Christian Fiction Writers to keep up with vital information regarding the craft and business of her profession, along with enjoying the fellowship of other inspirational writers. The resource group, 19th Century Writers, helps her keep the details in her historicals accurate.
She’s a Hoosier by birth and a southerner through God’s plan. Sandra and her family live in the southeast in a town whose role in Civil War history just might end up as the framework for a future novel. She is represented by Diana Flegal at Hartline Literary Agency.
