(? - living) New Zealand
Writer of science fiction whose two novels, The Godmothers (1983) and The Wingwomen of Hera (1987), are utopian and radical. They centre on lesbians, and challenge conventional heterosexual social roles in much the same way that a great deal of feminist science fiction of the 1970s and 1980s did.
Born in Cornwall, England, raised on the Canadian Prairies, Sandi led quite a peripatetic life, living in Zambia, Mexico, California, Australia and New Zealand in addition to England and Canada. At present, she lives in Auckland, her turangawaewae (to-ranga-why-why, meaning, place to stand).
