Welcome! I'm Sandra R Neeley and I write Paranormal, SciFi, and Fantasy Romances. Why? Because normal is highly overrated. I’m 58, I have two kids, one 36 and one 16 (yes, God does have a sense of humor), two grandchildren, one husband, and a menagerie of animals. Literally, too damn many things that eat wandering around our property. I love to cook, and I was once a voracious reader, though since I started writing I don’t get as much time to read as I once did. I am a homebody and prefer my writing/reading time to a crowd. I have had stories and fictional characters wandering around in my head for as long as I can remember. I started letting them out into the real world and surprisingly, people have loved them. I am a Self-Published Author, and I like it that way because I can decide what and when to write. I am by no means a formal, polished, properly structured individual and neither are my stories. But people seem to love the easy emotion and passion that naturally flow from them. A bit of a warning though, there are some “triggers” in them that certain people should avoid. I’m a firm believer that you cannot have light without the dark. You cannot fully embrace the joy and elation that my people eventually find if you do not bear witness to their darkest hours as well. So please be sure to read the warnings supplied with each of the synopses about my books, before you buy them.
I've got several series published at this time; Avaleigh's Boys, Riley's Pride, and Roar - PNR, Whispers From the Bayou - Fantasy PNR, Haven - SciFi Romance, and Variant - A Dark Genetic Manipulation Romance that focuses on survival and romance with a military overtone. I've got several more standalones, co-writes, collections, and shorts out there in multiple genre's, too, with even more rattling around in the back of my head. You never know what I'll offer my readers next.
I've recently added two pen names to my repertoire - one for children's books - Beatrice Butters, and one for clean closed-door Paranormal, SciFi, and Fantasy Romances - Ava Leigh Marchande. Be sure to check out my alter egos tab for links to those works, and stop by the updates tab to see what snippet I've offered up this week. I'm thinking of adding other intriguing things to this page in the coming weeks, so check back soon. I’m always glad to hear from readers, so feel free to look me up and say hello, or just follow along - either way, I’m glad you're here.
