Sandra Woffington was a member of Sol Stein’s Chapter One writing and critique group, which inspired her ambition to write. She attended the University of California at Irvine, where she was among sixteen students selected from all Humanities majors, accepted into the distinguished Humanities Honors Program. Ms. Woffington’s honors thesis won distinction as “The Most Outstanding” at an awards ceremony in 2000.  Ms. Woffington graduated Cum Laude with a bachelors degree in English.  She then attended Chapman University  and obtained two masters degrees: MFA in Creative Writing and MA in English.  While at Chapman, she had a poem and a short story published in Caliope, Chapman’s literary journal.  Her debut novel Unveiling received Honorable Mention from Writer’s Digest SP e-book awards in 2013. The screenplay she co-authored with her sister, Lisa Oster, was a Semi-Finalist in the CWA (Creative World Awards) in 2013. Ms. Woffington lives in southern California.  She works as a teacher and a free-lance developmental editor, and she is working on a 7-book MG (Middle Grade) series. In her youth, she lived abroad: Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; London, England; Rome, Italy.  These early opportunities gave her a thirst for adventure, a desire to understand cultures other than her own, and a quest to paint page after page with words that capture it all.

Her hobbies include reading, traveling, and hoola hooping (the latter of which she says is great exercise and a lot of fun).  She also enjoys visits with her daughters, usually spent in unique restaurants or in and around the kitchen, where they collectively test new recipes and prepare gourmet feasts, followed by curling up with blankets to watch (and critique) movies.
