Posted by bloggingauthorsadmin
Topics of conversation:
- The spiritual experience that led to Sandy’s writing career.
- Sandy’s life as a successful business woman living in Silicon Valley, and how it influenced the core messages in Numenon.
- Characters, themes, American Southwest, Native American culture, and more.
- Thoughts on the genre of “visionary fiction,” and writing as a spiritual mandate.
- How to overcome the struggles of being a professional career writer.
Sandy Nathan grew up in the hard-driving, competitive culture of the early Silicon Valley. “I’ve known people like those in my books since I was a child,” she says. Sandy holds master’s degrees in economics and counseling and was a student in the doctoral program at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business. She has been an economist, negotiation coach, and businesswoman. The visionary part of her writing flows from her meditation practice and spiritual experience. A lifelong horsewoman, Sandy is a wife and mother of three grown children. She lives on their California horse ranch.
