A number of her novels and short stories are available in the audio format.

Before beginning her career in the field of novel writing, Sally obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree from Notre Dame University in English. She passed out with a first-class result. Sally is a dropout of the Cornell Law School. She had an interest in law studies, but could not continue her studies due to other commitments. Author Sally is also a former writer of federal regulation, parent volunteer, champion swimmer, and the mother of 4 grown-up children. She has a great interest in traveling and loves to visit England a lot, especially for researching the historic sites of the country and hiking through the English countryside. Author Sally is a native resident of Washington, DC. Currently, she resides in the Maryland suburbs along with her supportive husband and sons. Her home is located close to her childhood home.

Sally took the decision of becoming a writer when she was in grade school. Eventually, she majored in English, dropped out of law school, returned to her hometown in Washington, DC, and sat down to write her first book. However, she did not actually start writing stories. In fact, her initial works were regulations for the nutrition programs of the US government’s schools. While continuing with writing the regulations, Sally married her sweetheart from law school after his graduation. Two years later, she gave birth to her first son. Subsequently, Sally retired from federal regulation writing to look after her young son. While tending her kids, Sally used to indulge herself in writing stories or picture book texts to get rid of the boredom of being at home. She even tried carpool driving. And when all four of her sons were born, Sally had evolved into a skilled scheduler. She used to take them to soccer, baseball, swimming, basketball, piano, track racing, and scout training and even birthday parties without being late for any of them.

To pass her time in between her household chores and dropping her kids to school, Sally undertook more writing. She started penning school newsletters, class plays, family newsletter, auction programs, swim league guidance, etc. It was only after her kids joined a college that Sally decided to pursue her dream of developing a story of historical romance. Sally took several tries and rewritings to finally come up with a polished manuscript. After joining RWA, she sent the manuscript for the 2004 contest of Golden Heart. It worked out quite well for her as her manuscript made it to the final round. When one of the judges showed an interest in buying the manuscript, Sally agreed. The manuscript was then published under the title of The Naked Duke. From then onward, Sally has not looked back. She has penned many books under different series and most of them have become successful all over the world.
