About Sally Malkowski
Sally Malkowski made her debut into the literary world sparked by her personal convictions as well as her passion and hobby for the written word.
Born in Washington, D.C. and raised in Silver Spring, Maryland, she began her writing career from her home in Land O' Lakes, Florida, where she resided with her husband, Tony. She was secretary for Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church for over 7 years, and then a member of St. Timothy Catholic Church where she was coordinator of over 40 ministries. She is certified as a Lay Pastoral Minister for the Diocese of St. Petersburg. She has had articles printed in church bulletins, The Tampa Tribune (Florida), and The Petoskey News Review (Michigan).
Due to a 2005 move to northern Michigan and her home nestled among the tall red pines, she anticipated long, fulfilling days in Writer's Heaven. However, shortly after settling in, that goal was interrupted when she was asked by the pastor of her parish church if she would "help out part time just until we find someone". Finally, in the fall of 2014, they found someone!
Now she and her hubby and their shih poo Max plan to split their time between their northern Michigan home and their condo on the shores of Lake Erie.
Sally has been employed by the Catholic Church for over 15 years and drew on those experiences for her OUR FATHER series.
I have lived in some of the most picturesque places in America. Water is very inspirational to me. Above is a view from the Mackinaw Bridge Park. Oftentimes I would sit under sunny or overcast skies, let my mind wander, and just ... be! The majesty of my surroundings did the rest!
Upper picture, right hand side, is one of my favorite Lake Erie meditation locations, practically in my own back yard. The waves. beating against the rocks, drown out the days stress and let my mind roam.
Right hand side lower picture is the lighthouse that was the inspiration for my stand-alone, Awaiting the Dawn, and our motivation for relocating to the shores of Lake Erie.
I'd love to hear from you!
