Sandy Butchers is an author/artist, known for her elaborate dystopian/sci-fi worlds and creature designs. Her life has been like a giant cake but instead of ingredients like sugar, spice, and everything nice, her cake was layered with travel, exploration, myth, and folklore. In a time span of only 5 years, she visited Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Poland, and Scotland, and decided to live 350km above the arctic circle in Finland for a year. There, in the company of the Northern Lights, the magic happened: Sandy started her first full-length novel, inspired by the myths and folklore she found herself surrounded by in real-world situations.
She was, however, no stranger to all things fantasy/Sci-Fi. At the age of 14, she had already written her own novella which was picked up by a local publisher and kickstarted her career as the Youngest Author in the Country at the time. Today, she has won several awards in best-selling anthologies (‘Forgotten Ones’ and ‘Dark Magic’ by Canadian Publishers Eerie River Publishing, and ‘Pride’ & ‘Lust’ by Australian Publisher Black Hare Press) and runs her own sci-fi/fantasy project that combines stories and art in the form of monthly novellas and a selection of collector’s items on Patreon. To top things off with a cherry, Sandy now teaches graphic design and art, and gives lectures about contemporary platforms for writers to explore.
