Sandra Brian Lore
Sandra Brian Lore had a typical small-town and suburban life outside Chicago — until she was given the chance to discover the larger world accompanying her husband Mark abroad where they lived on four continents during their 32 years in the Foreign Service. They have two grown married children and one outstanding grandson. Born and raised in Illinois, she studied at Northwestern University and graduated from Illinois Wesleyan University in 1962. She and her husband have retired in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia where she writes, fiddles Irish music and volunteers for various good causes.
