Sheila Jeffries Book and Novel

Sheila Jeffries - Author


Sheila Jeffries has been writing since she was young, and penned four children's novels which were published before she left school. Written under her maiden name, Sheila Chapman, in the popular 'pony story' genre of the time, the books continued to sell worldwide until the eighties. After studying at Bath Academy of Art, Sheila spent many happy years teaching in UK schools. She had eight more children's novels published under the name Sheila Haigh, and her most successful book, Little Gymnast, was a bestseller in America. Solomon's Tale breaks new ground in her writing career. It's a book truly from the heart, and though it is fiction it is based on two real cats, Solomon and Jessica, who shared and enriched her life. Sheila lives in Somerset where she enjoys teaching meditation and running workshops for writers.

If you like Sheila Jeffries you might also like to read books by Cecelia Ahern, Melanie Rose and Katie Flynn.
