Sally is a native North Carolinian. She lives with her husband and daughter in the Blue Ridge Mountains. She grew up just outside Charlotte, NC and spent summers playing on the beaches of the Carolinas.
Choosing the Wilmington, North Carolina region as the setting for her first book reflects Sally’s lifelong fascination of the Cape Fear River and her state’s rich coastal history.
Her first book, SHADOWS OF LOVE was nominated for the 2001 RIO's Dorothy Parker Award of Excellence for Best Historical and as well as a 2001 nomination for the Frankfurt Award. Copies of her book were also given to the studio audience during the premerie talk show THE OTHER HALF's romance book segment.
Interest in writing began at age nine when Sally tied first place in a poetry contest. In 1994, her real-life hero, husband, Wayne, encouraged her to join Romance Writers of America.
She entered and placed in five contests. In 1999, Sally’s letter, resulting in an agent contract, was included in a Writer's Digest Book, "Your Novel Proposal From Creation to Contract", by Blythe Camenson and Marshall J. Cook.
Her poetry and short story can be found in Authors & Their Pets and the premiere issue of Yellow Sticky Notes , features several of her poems, both published by Word Museum.

After serving two terms as vice-president, Sally then served as president of the online RWA chapter, From the Heart.
In December 1999, Sally and Lori Soard joined their talents to form WORLD ROMANCE WRITERS, a non-profit professional organization dedicated to the enrichment, education and promotion of romance writers around the world. World Romance Writers.
