My name is Sandra Madera, and I am a recent college grad, obtaining my bachelor's degree in science. However, my true passion has always been writing. Growing up watching soap operas and playing with doll houses, I dreamed up hundreds of stories in my head everyday. I began writing in the second grade when I was honored with a prize after writing a fun short story about animals playing baseball.
I have penned several short stories, including the beloved "Weeping Willow" and "Shattered". I have also authored full-length novels, having written both the Restraint Trilogy and the Weeping Willow Series.

In loving memory of my best friend, my dearest companion, my baby boy, Brownie. You will forever be missed... Sleep with the angels, baby. I love you.

I am happy to report that I have roughly eight chapters to write for Malcontent. The projected word count exceeded my expectations. The final book might end up 5,000-10,000 more words than I originally thought. This book will mark the end of the Restraint Trilogy and conclude a journey that began for me when I dreamed with these characters a little more than 16 years ago. It is both a sad and happy event.
I know that many people are interested in knowing details of Wicked Love. Wicked Love will pick up exactly where Wicked Magic left off. In Wicked Magic, Willow was the main protagonist, but Nalin will take the lead in Wicked Love since he must first remember his lost love and then rescue her like all good heroes do. I want to have it out by mid-2014, but if I can have it done sooner, then I will release it earlier.
As soon as I am done with Malcontent, I will begin work on Wicked Love without delay. In fact, I am pretty eager to get started. There are a lot of great ideas I have that I can't wait to get started on.
I have written a yearly novelette for 2014 entitled The Collector. Look for it in January 2014 in Smashwords first and then in other online bookstores.
To all those who left reviews and recommended by books to friends, thank you for helping me reach those who wouldn't have otherwise come to know my work.
