In this Under the Covers episode, we meet Sandy Hill, author of five novels, four historical fiction books and one mystery.

Sandy worked for many years as an editor for The Charlotte Observer and is a lifelong reader, who wrote her first short story at age 10. Growing up poor in Pennsylvania in a small, rural town informed her work, particularly her novel “The Blue Car,” a coming of age story set in the North Carolina foothills that deals with difficult choices and the courage to stand up for what is right.

Although “Deadline for Death” was Sandy’s first novel, her favorite novel is “Tangled Threads,” set in a turn-of-the-century Piedmont cotton mill village. She became inspired by “From Cotton Fields to Skyscrapers” at the Museum of the New South, and focused the book on the girls who worked in those textile mills.
