About Sandy Peckinpah



Sandy Peckinpah
Sandy Peckinpah discovered the power in storytelling when she was inspired to write her first book after her daughter was born with a facial defect, a cleft.

Rosey…the Imperfect Angel was a magical fairytale that focused on the beauty of imperfection. The fairy tale was recorded as a CD, produced by Tony Award Winner, Michael Alden and starred the voice of actress and former SAG President, Melissa Gilbert (best known for “Little House on the Prairie”). The CD made it all the way to the Grammy Ballot in 2009.

Her second book, Chester the Imperfect All Star, followed with the same media attention. Her fairy tales continue to be used in schools, hospitals, and clinics to raise awareness and help children with self-esteem.

After the death of her child, Sandy’s passion was to write a book that could help parents through such a devastating loss. Her book, "How to Survive the Worst that can Happen" is a parent's step by step guide to healing after the loss of a child. It recently won the Pinnacle Book Achievement Award from NABE, the New York Book Festival Award, and the Readers' Favorite Award.

Sandy is trained as a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist® by the acclaimed Grief Recovery Institute® in Los Angeles, California. She facilitates programs to help people move beyond the pain caused by loss, whether it be death, divorce, financial, or other forms of loss. Please feel free to contact her for more information:

In addition to writing, Sandy works as a real estate agent for Coldwell Banker in Southern California and also co-hosted a weekly radio show, “Passion by Design” on AM Talk Radio. She focuses on projects that make a difference in people’s lives.

Sandy lives in sunny Southern California with her husband and children.

  1. Sandy, great job in taking your bull by the horn. To my mind comes one of my favorite comments to patients, " God saves the most difficult tests for his best students" www.ivanfigueroaoteromd.com
