Sandy Mertens, (also known as Sandyspider, sandyspiderbite and SandyM online, plus a few others not listed). Began online as an internet marketer and soon found a passion for writing. An online writer and researcher who enjoys photography, art, graphics art, web design and working on blogging.

Looking for a change of career, Sandy opened up her first website http://www.ebooktreesaver.com . With a premade template, she soon used this as a guide to learn HTML and create all her websites from scratch. The eBook site does not look anything like the original one.

A website directory was created to show where to find Sandy, http://www.sandyspider.com/ This directory is a work in process and has only a portion of where she can be found.

Discovering the creative side, she opened up several CafePress shops. A year later opened up her first Zazzle shop. She now has two shops:
