Christmas Fiction Author


Sheila was raised in South Shore on Chicago’s south side. This photo of the author was taken in the lobby of the Hamilton Movie Theatre on 71st Street and became the humorous Christmas gift she gave her parents that year.


Sheila had the great privilege of being onboard escort to James A. Michener and his wife Mari during a cruise through Alaska. The Micheners and Sheila are shown during a stop in Skagway.
