"New Territories Were Never Charted By People Who Were Afraid To Go Beyond The Edge Of The Map." ~ Sandi Bird 2007 ~


Background Information

When it comes to non-fiction, the Bible is my Number 1 book! It's my Roadmap for Success. After that, I love to read anything by the following authors: Dr. A.E.Crabtree, John Maxwell, Max Lucado, Jim Collins, Robert Kiyosaki, Og Mandino, Patrick M. Lencioni, and a whole ton more. Most current favorite is: The Four Hour Work Week by Timothy Ferris.

My major fictional literary influences have been J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and Frank Peretti. I grew up reading the first two, and raised my kids on all three. I can attribute that as a strong basis for their current aspirations to write fiction and poetry. My two sons have works posted on this site: Troy Bird and Jedidiah Bird.

As to background, I am a mom of three grown children and five young grandchildren. I became a single parent when my kids were in the early to mid teenage years, and it is the grace of God that any of us made it through that time period!

I am also a born-again Christian, and my personal, daily relationship with God is a powerful influence in all of my writings as well. God has brought me through some very painful life circumstances, and has helped me to decide to become a VICTOR, instead of a VICTIM over those events. I use those things in both my writing and ministry opportunities to help other people to walk victoriously and successfully in their lives.

I am an entrepreneur with several business ventures currently in progress, and was able to retire from being an employee this past December 31, 2007 to pursue the things that actually support my life goals, which basically are: Ministry, Freedom (to spend time with my family and pursue the things I enjoy doing), and Prosperity on all levels.

Birth Place

Accomplishments

Raising and homeschooling 3 fantastic kids, completing over 700 miles of the Appalachian Trail, helping to lead a medical mission team in Uganda, and successfully launching my own business,to name a few.

For those of you who measure achievement by academic standards, I've earned a B.A. in Theology (I'm slowly working on a Master's Degree), certification as a Licensed Practical Nurse, and completed three years towards a computer programming degree in the late 80's...oh, yeah, I was on the National Dean's List a couple times as well.

I'm active as an officer in our local Roanoke Valley Republican Women's Club. My hobbies include: CouchSurfing (http://www.couchsurfing.com/people/mouses_motor), traveling, backpacking, hiking, reading, long naps, and much more!
