Sandra M. Charles was born in Michigan in 1952 and grew up in a Catholic family in
rural Minnesota. She has worked as an operating room nurse in four different states.
She currently indexes medical textbooks and tutors ESL students. Her greatest
passion, other than all things medical, is to bliss out on nature while growing
flowers, vegetables, and trees. She would miss her grandma’s funeral for a good
thunderstorm. Sandy lives in northern New Mexico with her husband John and two
children. She is still trying to learn Spanish, but, in her defense, she grows excellent
To Forgive the Foxes tells the story of how abuse affects both individuals and
communities, and how it ensnares vulnerable young people. While this is a subject
which many people are uncomfortable discussing, understanding and awareness are
key in order to effect change. Sandy hopes to shine a light on the sexual, physical,
emotional, and spiritual abuse perpetuated by Catholic clergy in order to bring
about timely justice, accountable prevention and healing for victims.
