V.M. Sang was born and lived her early life in Cheshire in the north west of England. Her father died while she was very young and her mother remarried. Her stepfather was a farmer on the Cheshire/North Wales border.
V.M. Sang's step brothers and sisters all went to boarding school, but she was lucky enough to escape that, going to live with her mother’s elder sister and her husband in order to get a good education. She passed her 11+ examination and went to Grammar School, thus getting a more academic education.
She has always loved books and reading and learned to read before she went to school. She loved Enid Blyton books Blyton is not supposed to be good, but she certainly got V.M. Sang reading. especially her Famous 5 books and the Adventure books, like the Sea of Adventure, the Mountain of Adventure etc.
There was another book by Enid Blyton, called Shadow the Sheepdog that V.M. Sang loved with her love of animals. This inspired her to write her very first story. She could not have been more than about 6 or 7, because she spelled ‘of’ wrongly throughout. spelling it ‘ov’.
During her teenage years she wrote some poetry, one of which was published in the magazine of the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST). Unfortunately, that is the only one that is still around.
V.M. Sang became a teacher and taught English and Science at her first school. Her main subject was science, though, but she also taught Maths and what was then known as Computer Studies.
A little 9 year old boy, with the wonderful name of Fred Spittal, told her she should read The Lord of the Rings, but first read The Hobbit. This she did and have been hooked on fantasy ever since.
She did little writing until starting to teach in Croydon, Greater London. Here she started a Dungeons and Dragons club in the school where she was teaching using bought scenarios at first. She then thought she could write her own.
The idea of turning it into a novel formed in her head, but she did little about it until she took early retirement. Then she began to write The Wolves of Vimar Series. Not having written a novel since her teens (a rather bad romantic novel) for the consumption of her friends, she was surprised at how this work seemed to take on a life of its own, and what was supposed to be a single novel turned into a series.
Walking has always been one of V.M. Sang's favourite pastimes, having gone on walking holidays in her teens. She met her husband walking with the University Hiking Club, and they still enjoy walking on the South Downs. They also bought a kayak and have done quite a lot of kayaking in Brittany along the river Vilaine and the Oust.
Quieter things that she enjoys doing are a variety of crafts, such as card making, tatting, crochet, knitting etc. she also draws and paints.
V.M.Sang is married with two children, a girl and a boy. Her daughter has three children and she love to spend time with them.
She now lives in East Sussex with her husband.
