Sheila Roberts was first introduced to reading by her grandmother though she always had a lot of books in her home. She still remembers how excited she was when she got her first library card and her favorite book as a child was “The Wind in the Willows.” Her neighborhood in Seattle had a gorgeous but small Carnegie library and she can still remember going up the stone steps and walking over the hardwood floors as she headed for the children’s book section. She started writing as a child and has always written since. When she was an adult and got married, her mother in law that had become one of her best friends suggested that she write a story about her life. While nothing came of the manuscript, the experience whet her appetite for writing, and went on to write magazine articles and short stories for years. In the 2000s, she had an idea for a Regency England era story that had a lady thief as the lead. It was her first published work that put her on the path to becoming a renowned women’s fiction author.
