Comments from Readers

Re: The Gift Counselor ~ The stories within the book are so interesting and the characters are sometimes flawed but very real.  I can’t wait to read the 3rd book.  Keep writing Sheila, its your gift and the fact you share it is our gift !!  Jooley J., Wixom, MI 10/21/20

Re: Heart Shaped II ~ The mini stories are about finding love in unexpected places unexpectedly. They’re warm and hopeful. Last story is longer – a touchingly beautiful and fitting ending to the book. ~ Barbara E., Los Angeles, 2- 27- 2020

Re: Best of All Gifts ~ Congratulations on your accomplishment. I hope you end up on The NY Times best seller list.  David, Santa Monica, CA
