Sandra Phinney is a Canadian-based professional writer and photographer. She lives on the edge of the Tusket River in Nova Scotia. She and her husband, Barrie MacGregor, built their home and are powered up with solar. (In case you are wondering, the roof is still standing and their marriage survived.)
Sandra’s had a few former lives including teaching and social work. Then she farmed for 18 years, growing organic vegetables. After losing money for 17 of those 18 years, she sold the farm and started over. Now, instead of driving a tractor and growing vegetables, Sandra wields a camera and harvests stories.
To satisfy her craving to teach, Sandra gives writing workshops on various topics including narrative, writing memoir, how to start a freelance business and travel writing.
Sandra is a member of the Professional Writers Association of Canada, the Travel Media Association of Canada, the Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia, the Canadian Association of Journalists and the Canadian Freelance Union. In her spare time she practices Tai Chi and does wilderness canoeing.
