Sheila is one of four sisters from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, and loves puppies. She has three grown children (grown is relative when your mother is 5′ 1″), and three small, yappy doggies that she loves very much. Sheila has lived in Toronto, New York City, New Jersey, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Austin, and San Antonio so far, and is so good at packing she will probably continue to use that skill again in the future. Once upon a time, she was an actress, VP of a financial marketing firm, worked in a jail, and was a Realtor. She is mad about crime fiction, thrillers, psychological who-dun-its, mysteries, fantasy, science fiction, funny chic-lit, well-done romance, and the odd autobiography. She is always in a book club.
