Sheila Roberts lives on a lake in the Pacific Northwest. She’s happily married and has three children. She’s been writing since 1989, but she did lots of things before settling in to her writing career, including owning a singing telegram company and playing in a band. Her band days are over, but she still enjoys writing songs. Sheila's books are best sellers and often appear as Reader's Digest Condensed Books. Her novel "Angel Lane" was named one of Amazon's top ten romances in 2009. Her novel "On Strike for Christmas" was a Lifetime Network movie and her novel "The Nine Lives of Christmas" is now a Hallmark movie. When she’s not speaking to women’s groups or at conferences or hanging out with her girlfriends she can be found writing about those things near and dear to women’s hearts: family, friends, and chocolate.
Sheila Roberts first went to the doctor thinking she had a kidney stone. It turned out she had something much more serious: uterine cancer. Thus began a spiritual and emotional journey that took her over some rough terrain yet taught her a lot about herself, her faith, and life in general. She shares the lessons she learned along the way with humor and frankness.
Sheila’s story is bound to encourage any woman who finds herself on a similar journey and is in need of encouragement.
"Sheila Roberts makes me laugh. I read her books and come away inspired, hopeful, and happy."
