Sandy Dugger can be found asking people to hold and reboot their computers by day. But at night she can often be found working on her own computer – writing.

Originally from Oregon, Sandy now lives in a small town outside Phoenix Arizona. At almost thirty she went back to school and received a Bachelor’s degree in computer sciences.

She was honorably discharged from the U.S. Navy under DADT. Even though she is now unable to re-enlist she still supports her military brothers and sisters. She enjoys spending quiet days at home with family and friends. Sandy loves to read, play games (all sorts), catch up on her DVR, and travel to new places.



Sandy Dugger Future PromisesRose Thomas has spent the last few years riding horses and mending fences at a women’s only dude ranch. Life is going great for the wrangler until she receives news of the passing of a relative. The journey home leaves her with new options for her future and a handful of journals that were written during the Civil War. Now she gets to read about the stories that she had listened to growing up, but as she turns the pages, she realizes some things had changed over time.

Keri Masters has spent her life trying to make her parents and her boyfriend of eight years happy. Before she is set to join her parents and their medical practice, she has a few things she needs to do: break up with her boyfriend and take a long overdue trip west. When she arrives at the dude ranch, she is drawn to Rose and is forced to face feelings she hasn’t acknowledge for a long time.

Under the hot Arizona sun, Rose and Keri’s feelings for each other start to heat up, as does the story in the pages that Rose continues to read. But as the two women grow closer, their time together is cut short. Will Rose find a happy ending between the pages of the journal, and will she and Keri be able to find their own happy ending?


Another Treat for Sandy Dugger Fans: EDITING LIFE

sandy dugger Editing LifeBailey Hutsell ran from her best friend for fear of a broken heart. After ten years in the Navy she returns to the home she grew up in. While attempting to acclimate to civilian life she has to juggle a new job, her sister’s health issue, a new group of friends, and the heartache of having to see her nightmare come true when her best friend starts dating someone new.
Shayla Horton has buried herself in her bookstore and the escape that her books provide. She didn’t think she would survive when her best friend ditched their high school plans and joined the Navy. Now she has to deal with Bailey returning to her life. Her emotions are in turmoil as one moment she wants to throttle her best friend and in the next moment she longs to pull her close and never let her go. She is able to avoid her feels with the new woman who captures her attention.

Can two women both hurt move forward with friendship. Will their attempt to edit the past to write a new future be able to withstand the trials life throws at them?

The dry plains drew Judy Proctor like a bear to her den…or a moth to the flame. Ranching was her life. The sweat as she branded or “doctored” cattle…the howl of a coyote in the quiet, night air … half-frozen fingers as she cut the wire to loosen hay bales for hungry cattle scratching for survival in snow-covered land…all of the everyday existence on the ranch was her life. …..It was where she belonged…….It was a lonely life.

She had tried to leave the ranch to join the “normal” existence of a talented young woman in the city, but it had never been home. When her parents were killed……….


The Kiva and The Mosque

kivaAnswers rarely come from expected sources. The need for answers to save a troubled humanity forces Kidwell Brown and Aisha Sudda, two total strangers, into roles they never could have anticipated. Kidwell and her life-partner, Anna Montoya, live a quiet life in their mountain home until the day Kidwell is drawn to visit the Kiva cave at Bandelier National Monument. Hundreds of miles away, Aisha Sudda Fletcher lives another quiet existence, along with her husband, Greg, until the day she is drawn to visit a garden beside a vandalized mosque.

S.Y.’s latest book is: Beyond the Garden. Beyond The Garden chronicles the story of the first woman, Lilith, and illustrates that she was not as portrayed.

Adding to her dilemma is an incredible woman who gives her a reason to live. Beyond the Garden is more than a Garden of Eden story.

A Dangerous Reality – Mature Steamy Romance

A Dangerous Reality

(The Bent Zealots MC Book 1)
Contemporary Romance
MC (motorcycle club) MM (gay)
by Layla Wolfe


Get Your Copy Here


Keep your lovers close—and your enemies in bed.
TURK. My club sent me to track him down. And when my mission was over, I never wanted another one again. When I found him, I kicked the crap out of Havelock Singer. I issued the mightiest beatdown of all time. Problem is, we’re evenly matched. We’re equals in every way, and when we finished whaling on each other, exhausted, we fell into each other’s arms.

I’ve never regretted it for an instant. It’s been the ride of my life. But loving another man in the MC world is a risky business. As if our business isn’t already brutal and ruthless enough, Lock’s homophobic sergeant-at-arms Stumpy gets an eyeful of our lovemaking and blackmails us into doing some of his dirty work, or be exposed for what we are—a couple of deviants. This run into the Indian reservation is sleazy and beneath us, but now I’m cornered, and I’ll do anything to keep my sweet Master from being lynched by his club.

LOCK. When that kingpin Carmine Rojas got a load of my beautiful stallion Turk Blackburn, he’d stop at nothing to have him—and Rojas gets what he wants. It’s my fault we’re in this situation. I should’ve kicked Turk’s ass and sent him packing back to The Bare Bones. I wasn’t even close to being ready to come out, but now they’re forcing my hand.

I can hear my destiny calling me. Either I’ll slink back to my club like a hetero bounty hunter with no morals—and no respect from anyone in my own backyard—or I’ll step up to the plate and be the lion of the day. Either way, my lover and I are screwed. Our clubs are going to hound us underground or into another country before we escape this mess—if we don’t die trying.

Living off the grid and being an outlaw brings a dangerous reality.” –Ron Perlman

Publisher’s warning: This book is not for the faint of heart. It contains scenes of gay sex, consensual BDSM, illegal doings, dubious consent, and man-on-man violence. There is no cheating and a HEA.
