Professional information

Shelley discovered her love for children's literature as a teacher. This gave her the idea to try writing her own books and now she is the author of nine novels for teens.

When Shelley isn't writing she can be found hiking, snowshoeing, practicing yoga, Zumba dancing or volunteering at the Grouse Mountain Refuge for Endangered Wildlife.
