Sandra Carrington-Smith is an Italian-born author who relocated to the United States in the late 1980’s. In order to become fully integrated, Sandra tapped into her love for reading, and over time her vocabulary grew extensively. After giving birth to three wonderful children and devoting most of her time to raising a family, Sandra decided to revisit her deepest passion since childhood — writing. Her first novel is The Book of Obeah, an extraordinary literary work of paranormal suspense, and winner of a 2010 International Book Award. Sandra went on to write Housekeeping for the Soul: A Practical Guide to Restoring Your Inner Sanctuary, which was shortlisted for the International Book Award in spiritual nonficiton. She has written the sequel to The Book of Obeah, titled The Rosaries, and another novel of paranormal suspense titled Killer In Sight.
Sandra Carrington-Smith always brings an elevated spiritual empathy and emotional touch to the books she writes. Her newest novel, Shadows of a Tuscan Moon, is based loosely on the true stories of four Italian women who went missing, some later being found dead, all who suffered in abusive relationships. It tells the story of a young woman, Rosa, who wakes up in a strange hospital with no memory of her life. As she meets the other patients and learns their stories, she begins to uncover the truth of the life she had been living in fear and abuse, and she must find the courage to face her reality and save herself and her son. Shadows of a Tuscan Moon blends paranormal thriller and inspirational fiction to give hope, and a voice, to women of the world who suffer from abuse and violence in relationships.
