Although she was born and educated on the south coast of England, life choices have gradually moved Sheila Claydon northwards across the UK. At present she is lucky enough to live on a stunning stretch of unspoiled coastline in the northwest of England where she finds walking her dog an enjoyable counterweight to the sedentary life of a writer.

Interspersed with her writing is a long and varied career in health, education and employment. This has mostly involved working to improve standards and opportunities for children, people with disabilities, and older people, and she likes to think she is a better writer because of those experiences. She also admits that a few of her heavily disguised characters are based on people she has worked with in the past.

A prize-winning poet, she has tutored children in partnership with the UK’s ‘Poetry in Schools’ programme, and also worked with creative writing groups, and organized and run writing workshops.
