About Landra

© Bralie Branan

Landra writes fantasy novels for preteens – ages 8 through 12 – but appreciates readers of all ages!

Landra loved books before she could read – as a toddler in Georgia she'd turn the pages of books for hours. As a preteen, she’d strictly manage the list of library books checked out by her and her younger siblings. She turned this love of management and list-making into an adult career as a management consultant, working in Atlanta and Chicago. However, these days she has returned to her love of books and story, writing fairy-tale influenced fantasy like the stories that so fascinated her as a child.

Landra has an MBA from Northwestern University and an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Hamline University where she won the Anne Tews Schwab Scholarship in Excellence in Critical Writing and the Walden Pond Press Scholarship in Middle Grade Fiction and Nonfiction. 

Today, Landra lives with her husband and sons in Greenville, South Carolina but still has a special place in her heart for Chicago, where her children were born. She doesn’t get offended when people mispronounce or misspell her name, but for the record, it’s pronounced like Sandra with an “L”.
