About

Welcome to my Internet Home. I am a writer and this is one of the places I write.

I have an edge. Sarcasm and irony are two of my favorite things.

I am a wide eyed optimist. I love a happy ending.

This is the dichotomy that is me. Lou Reed meets Jack Johnson.

Those three lines are from a piece I wrote for the Huffington Post where I am a guest contributor.

I also like music. All kinds of music. When I wrote that second line about my favorite things, my mind immediately jumped to The Sound of Music. Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens.

I am currently working on my third novel which includes a lot of rock ‘n roll. While you wait in eager anticipation for more on that subject, you can read my published novels. The Reverse Commute  and Take Me Home. Both are available on Amazon and if you just move over to the long hallway to your right you can click on their covers and buy the books. I would love for you to buy the books.

Oh, I forgot to tell you, I am working on shameless promotion. It’s a requirement in my job description. Self published indie author. One Woman Show. We all do it. It’s the way books are sold now. Blogging, Tweeting, Facebooking, Pinning and Instagramming. If you travel down the hallway to the right, you will find a door leading to each and every one of those places where you can find me. I am everywhere.

I spent a year walking and blogging about it. It’s my year long story of  exploring my new home  in South Florida, a strange land indeed. It’s also a story of my becoming a writer and the inspiration I found all around me. What I Need is All Around Me. That ‘s Dave Matthews, someone I shared a brief, intimate moment with.

My perfect day would be living in Diane Keaton’s house in the movie Something’s Gotta Give. You know, the one with Jack Nicholson? Diane Keaton’s character is a successful playwright and lives in a beautiful home on the beach in the Hamptons. I want to be that woman. Writing at my desk early in the morning as the sun rises over the ocean, my coffee mug on my beautiful desk in my beautiful home designed in the style of a Nancy Meyers movie.

Are you thinking Talking Heads? Because I am.  You know, on my beautiful desk in my beautiful house? My mind leaps to Once in a Lifetime: And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife…. Sorry, I can’t help myself. The music is everywhere.

So, here you are. Welcome.  Make yourselves at home. Explore the rooms. They’re all listed above in my menu. The Road Trips, the Writing Inspiration, the Walking. There’s a funky little room called Escape the Cubicle. I can be found there once in awhile. I do still have a day job. Did I mention I’m trying to sell more books?

But, I’m heading on a road trip this summer. To the Hamptons! I am attending the Southampton Writer’s Conference and of course, I’ll be blogging about it so be sure to check in.

Oh, and buy the way, (Buy is not a typo! Well it was but I decided not to edit it), I do serve food here. Recipes from my books. Dinner’s at seven.

  1. Sheila,
    It was a pleasure to meet you at my Production, ‘My Author Is My Hero Day’ on March 16th at The Center for Spiritual Living, Boca Raton, Fl. The Boca Raton Walk on Water Fund was honored to have you as an honored Author at our premier. I have a photo of you I’d like to send you…but no address….if you can please email it to me….I’ll be happy to do so.

    I’m going off to La Jolla at the end of this month for 5-6 months to work with A Walk on Water events iat the Hollister Ranch and Malibu….and look forward to seeing you in the FAll.

    I’m trying to fill my ‘empty nest’…..speak to you.

    Sincerely and gratefully,

    You recently met my friends in Boynton at a restaurant named Josie’s I believe.
    She thought I would be interested in your website and books.

    Looking forward to reading them!

  3. Love your revamped site.
    I speak sarcasm better than English and love irony.
    Loved your books.
    In anticipation mode for book 3!

    Sheila it has been a pleasure getting to know you. I feel the connection even though we have never met in “real” life. ~ Judy

  4. Thanks Sheila! Guess, then, I will continue to walk the fine line between fan and stalker….but I am a pretty good judge of character so you should take this as a compliment. ;)
