Shelly is a transplant from about every part of the county. Since this city gal moved to a small town in the Mid-west, she's learned a lot about farming. She loves small town life, knowing everyone and walking everywhere, But she does miss being closer to a Target and having a variety of restaurants to choose from.

A former teacher and former reporter and mother of two, she spends her time writing, reading and hanging out with her family. She likes to talk, camp, hike, talk, sing, quilt, talk and read...read...read!!! Did I mention talk?

Shelly is a Young Adult fiction junkie and reads all the YA she can get her hands on. She reluctantly and briefly puts down the YA stuff to read her monthly book club book, but that's about all the adult reading she does.

Shelly has more than 100 books on her TBR (to be read) shelf. Her dream vacation is somewhere on the beach with a suitcase filled with books and a waiter who constantly brings her drinks. She'd only have to get up to go and cool off in the ocean. (Sigh)
