About

Hello!

I’m Sarah Wynde (or at least I call myself that sometimes) and this is my home on the web. One of them, anyway.

On this blog, I write about my life, my travels, my camper van/home, my dogs (often!), my kid (occasionally), the food I cook, and the writing I do. If you were hoping to learn more about the books I’ve written, that Book Info link up in the corner will take you to my business site, which I update with exclusively book info so that casual readers can skip all this other stuff.

Still here?

What would you like to know?

This is the moment when authors come up with amusing tales of their former identities, world travels, taste in food/beverages, and hobbies, right? Somehow being both humble and interesting, entertaining and inoffensive? Oi, that sounds like a lot of work. And awfully hard when it comes right down to it. But here goes…

Once upon a time, my son (terrific, wonderful, charming, sweet) said to me, “You have become a liberal stereotype, Mom.”

I said, “Is it the yoga?”

He said, “The yoga, the health food, the Jack Russell terrier…”

I said, “But I have 11 maxed-out characters in World of Warcraft and read almost exclusively genre fiction. Don’t my geek credentials save me?”

He said, “Not since you took up knitting.”

I said, “But I’m really bad at knitting and really good at WoW.”

He said, “Point to you.”

That was before I got dog #2 (a long-haired chihuahua) and moved into a camper van so I don’t know whether I am more or less of a stereotype now. If I am, it’s probably more like hippie aunt than soccer mom.

Other random facts: I like to pretend that my chihuahua is part corgi so I don’t have to worry that he’s getting fat — it’s those sturdy corgi bones. My van is named Serenity after the spaceship, although peace of mind is lovely, too. My secret superpower is the ability to protect other people from mosquitoes, which I assume means my blood is particularly delicious. I am therefore grateful that vampires aren’t real.

  1. I hope you are doing well. I just wanted to let you know that I am rereading all your books and enjoy them so much! I was going to leave a review (I rarely do that) but apparently I already wrote one! Thank you for your Gift of stories!

    • Thank you! I’m glad you’re enjoying them a second time around — I’m very big on re-reading books, myself, so it always delights me to know that they can be rereads for someone else!

  2. Just read you story ‘GIFT OF GHOST” .Ioved it , enjoyed it so much that I can put it down and from now I m going to read all you books. Thank you for you writing and ..

  3. Binge read “Gift of ‘ books (found first for free on bookbub, see it does work). At end of book three in the package set, it says to get a free copy of the story of how Maggie came to Tassamara to click onto your site and sign up for your newsletter. I can’t find anywhere to do that. Love the characters and stories. Please, how do I sign up? Thanks.

    • Hi, I wish I could email you! I bet you’re looking at the mobile version of the site. The sign-up widget drops way to the very, very bottom, after all the blog posts. On the wider screen version of the site, the sign-up widget is at the top left, under the words “Subscribe to my mailing list”. But if you can’t find either of those, email me at sarah at sarahwynde-dot-com (use the real period for the dot, of course, and omit the dashes) and I can send you the story. I’m glad you enjoyed the books!
