In loving memory of Sandra Moran
Sandra Moran was an author and assistant adjunct professor of anthropology at Johnson County Community College in Overland Park, Kansas. A native Kansan, she worked professionally as a newspaper journalist, a political speech writer, and an archaeological tour manager. In her novels, she strived to create flawed characters struggling to find themselves within the cultural constructs of gender, religion and sexuality.
She authored the following books: "Letters Never Sent," "Nudge," “The Addendum,” and “All We Lack.” Her final novel, "State of Grace," was published posthumously in the summer of 2016.
In the Fall of 2015, Sandra learned that she had Stage 4 cancer. On November 7, 2015, Sandra passed away surrounded by family and friends.
