The Stormy Winters Mystery Novels--Where the ideas come from.
Born in Arizona, author S A Slack, has lived in many of the western United States which has led to her love of nature, Native American jewelry, mountains, and citrus fruits. She can't imagine living here and not appreciating such things. Plus there’s nothing like biting into a slice of a freshly peeled navel orange!
Her parents taught she and her siblings the value of hard work, honesty, importance of family, and aspiring to whatever they wanted to accomplish in life. S A Slack tries to live up to these ideals in everything she does, including her writing as an author.
Writing has always been a big part of my life. I began writing stories and poems ever since I learned how to form letters with one of those big, fat yellow pencils on the large-lined paper in grade school. In Junior High, I pounded away on my Dad’s old typewriter to make the stories more ‘official looking’…more like the books I loved to read. And in High School, I took creative writing and journalism classes and flourished in them, with my teachers urging me to pursue a career in writing. And though I continued to write, my love of nature and animals led me to major in forestry in college, with a minor in writing.
Marrying the love of my life, and with children coming along, I never stopped writing: newsletters for my church groups, brochures for small businesses, news stories for local papers, magazine articles, bringing my family’s history to life, and stories to entertain my children.
It wasn't until my children were teenagers, that I decided to take the leap and write full-length books. My first was a children's book, "Pictures in the Paint." The illustrations were provided by two of my children and it was fun to see it in print! This paved the way for my mystery and fantasy novels.
Besides writing, I love to read, paint landscapes, be out in nature, hike with my husband and dog, travel, garden, geocache, go camping, work jigsaw puzzles, and get together with family and friends.
