Listen to interview

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.
