Benson, Minn., graduate pens trilogy; 'Bloodmark' now available


Aurora (Sandstrom) Whittet was 9 years old and didn’t know a soul when her family moved to a lonely little farm near Benson.

Hidden away in the country, the slight, red-headed girl used that time, space and a wild imagination to make up stories of “cool adventures.”

Those childhood stories led her down the “fantasy path” and proved to provide the learning ground for Whittet’s latest storyteller adventure as a published author.
