Lang deRive, Sandra

Poet & Writer

Sandra Lang deRive is originally from rural eastern Pennsylvania but the lure of exciting career opportunities and adventures in big city Chicago persuaded her to settle into permanent residency there with her husband, two sons and Chihuahua rescue, “Master Chi.” She has held a variety of jobs starting as a teenager at Hershey Park, PA., then to Chicago as a railroad teletype and telegraph operator, patent law, fire and police law and general law secretary, real estate assistant, airline customer service, and now semi-retired as a school bus driver. In her part-time business she was a mobile DJ for 20 years. The vast interests in her former careers also influence the variety of subjects she writes about in her poems, short stories and novellas. Currently she is working on her fairytale romance novel.
