Mardi Sands is addicted to words, with a love of words, books and poetry.

With husband Brian, she manages a cattle property in the Taroom/Wandoan area.  They have three children and six wonderful grandchildren.  

Mardi’s desire to help others record their life was fuelled by her love of history, and her many years with the u3Aonline.  Here, twice a year, she led an eight-week course of Autobiography and Journalling. This has led to a deep understanding of the many facets of a Life Story.  She has further developed her skills with a Diploma of Family History from the University of Tasman. 

She has conducted several workshops and this year is leading a full-day workshop, as part of Words out West, by Western Downs Regional Council.

She has been involved in the life of her community, including the local Arts Council, Kindergarten Director, Miles Writers Group, and supporting Brian with his horse sports.

Mardi believes that everyone is special, everyone is different, everyone has a story, and everyone can tell that story.
