She writes mystical fantasy for Middle Grade and Young Adult. She has written and published several short stories for adults and writes about a variety of topics on her blog. She also has a picture book idea in the works. Shelley is someone who embraces her magical child heart with joy and laughter and believes that life is much more fun with imagination in the driver’s seat.
Shelley has a variety of interests apart from writing and drawing, including anything mystical, teaching, baking, cooking, gardening, reading, nature walks, traveling and swimming. Some of her favorite things are: white puffy clouds, sunshine, oceans, fires, autumn days, snow, dreaming, fairies, flowers, animals, Indian food, cupcakes, and pretty clothes. Things she hates: ugly shoes, deception, GMOs.
With a hot cup of Earl Grey tea in her hand, she will gladly discuss the cosmos, or the dream that you had last night, or the meaning behind the synchronistic events that happen in your life via the signs and symbols coming from the Universe.
Hint: If you happen to notice an Ant crossing your path, she’s telling you to be patient about something. If you see a Hawk, pay attention to messages coming your way. And if it’s a Skunk—run! No, really, Skunk Medicine isn’t bad. It has to do with your reputation, and if you respect yourself you will create a powerful and honored one. To see an Eagle means a Spiritual test is coming.
She is also a member and resident Graphic Designer for the S.J.W.G (South Jersey Writer’s Group), and designs the book covers for Hypothetical Press, the group’s publishing arm.
Shelley currently lives in Blackwood, NJ with her cat Jasper.
