Tandy Balson was born and raised in Vancouver, BC. She and her husband now live on the outskirts of Calgary, AB. They consider themselves blessed to have seven grandchildren (and their parents) living nearby.
Tandy’s greatest joys include spending time with family and friends, meaningful volunteer work, time in nature, reading and writing. She enjoys baking and sharing gluten-free treats and also gives a good foot rub. There’s a long line for this but you’re welcome to join it!
Her mission in life is to inspire by bringing a fresh perspective to everyday life. She does this through her books, speaking engagements and blog.
As an inspirational speaker Tandy has spoken from coast to coast in Canada and, with the aid of an interpreter, in Mexico. She is the author of four books, one of which was a finalist for The 2016 Word Awards in the inspirational book category. Tandy posts inspirational messages on her website blog and can be heard in the archives on Hope Stream Radio. Her writings have been published in national and international magazines as well as several anthologies.
Tandy was honoured to a contributor to the 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 Voice and Vision Collaboration. In these she was partnered with an artist who took one of her writings and created a painting based on it. Tandy used inspiration gained from another of her partner’s paintings to write her interpretation of it. This successful project is soon to enter its fifth year and she is once again accepting the challenge to be part of this unique collaboration.
Tandy has partnered with various charities and non-profits in fundraising campaigns. “If your group is looking for a fundraising partner, contact me about promotions we can do with one of my books to help you reach your goal.”
