Sandy Barker

Sandy Barker is an Australian writer, traveller and hopeful romantic with a lengthy bucket list and a cheeky sense of humour. Many of Sandy's travel adventures have found homes in her writing, including her debut novel, a contemporary romance set in Greece, which was inspired by her true-life love story.

In 2020, two follow-ups to One Summer in Santorini hit bookshelves: That Night in Paris in April and A Sunset in Sydney in July.
