About Heidi Sands

Bloggers Photo

I am a freelance writer and artist living in New England.  I have non fiction guidance articles published in Woman's Own Magazine, ParentGuide News, Franklin Publishing Company, London Press and Our Journey.  I have poetry published in Our Journey and Womankind Anthology. I also have had numerous clips and letters to the editor published in Citizens Newspaper and Conway Daily Sun in NH.

I also enjoy doing Landscape and wildlife Oil Paintings.  I usually have an art gallery set up at home to the public in the summer season.

A basic site I have to view some of the paintings and writing is http://creativecallings.jigsy.com  If you click on the blog section at the top of the site, it takes a few minutes to load to see the photos and topics.

I now have 2 poetry books available for purchase at the Amazon Kindle Store.  One is called One With Nature in New Hampshire and the other is called HOPE, poetry/positive affirmations.

I have completed a true crime manuscript ready for publication titled, 'It's Never Too Late To Tell'. 

I fully enjoy participating at this great poetry soup site so I chose to became a premium member.    Thank you to everyone running this site and to everyone who has offered such kind support.
