Poppy Road Review publishes periodically throughout the year.


Sandy Benitez writes lyrical poetry & fiction, some under the pen name Sandy Hiss.  Her fondest memories of childhood are from her years in Germany, volksmarching through various old towns and forests and playing in the vast woods behind her home which contributed to her lifelong love of the paranormal, fairy tales, magical realism, and horror. Sandy currently resides in Southern California with her husband and two children.
