I'm Sheila Jeffries and I've been a successful children's author under two other names, SHEILA CHAPMAN and SHEILA HAIGH. My best seller was LITTLE GYMNAST published by Apple Paperbacks, USA, and it still has a fan list on the Good Reads web site.
I've been a primary school teacher and also a successful artist. I paint pictures of light , and quirky pictures of words which express my love of language and colour.
I've brought up a family, and planted a fifty acre wood in Cornwall, and been involved in lots of esoteric stuff. I am interested in helping people, and children, towards living peacefully and valuing their lives on this amazing planet.
Now that I have time, energy, and fire in my biro, I am writing prolifically and weaving all my different gifts into some new children's books and an adult saga which is set in beautiful Somerset where I live.
I hope you find my website inspiring.
SOLOMON'S TALE is to be published by AVON (Harper Collins) in autumn 2013
