Shelley has had a lifelong love affair with books that began the day her dad started reading aloud to her as a child – doing all the voices of course! The first book they read together was Roald Dahl’s Matilda, and years later, it’s a book she has passed on to her three children.
Over the years, Shelley has learned to view literature as a veritable all-inclusive buffet of literary flavours and she’s always hungry to sample the next choice. She has happily whiled away plenty of rainy afternoons and late nights reading some truly wonderful books. In fact, Shelley loves reading so much, she decided to follow the adage “Life is too short to waste it not doing what you love!” and eventually became a school librarian.
As a school librarian, Shelley has dedicated herself to discovering and sharing fantastic books with kids and teens. But, beneath her school librarian ensemble of glasses and a laser sharp gaze for incorrectly filed books, Shelley has held onto a dream few people knew about. One day, when she’s all grown up, Shelley dreams of becoming a published author…
Shelley’s journey towards becoming an author began with this website and will continue as she writes her first novel. What kind of novel? Well, the options are literally endless, but, in keeping with her passion for sharing books with children and teens, Shelley has decided to try her hand at writing a fantasy series for middle grade readers.
