Sandra (Thomas) Bolton grew up in northern California's Sacramento valley. She was born in Marysville, California and graduated from Marysville High School in 1959. Immediately after graduation she married her high school sweetheart,Tom Bolton, and left California on a Greyhound Bus bound for Memphis, Tennessee to join her husband. That was her first introduction to racial inequality and it made an enduring impression on her life. Sandra spent the next 25 years traveling from one coast or country to another while her husband completed a Navy career. During that time, she raised three children and completed a college education, receiving BA's in Elementary Education, Special Education and Science Education as well as a Master's Degree in Guidance Counseling. She has maintained an abiding interest in social causes and environmental issues for as long as she can remember, and served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Honduras from 1985-87. Sandra currently resides in Raton, New Mexico where she divides her time between reading, writing, hiking, gardening, photography, and gourmet cooking.
