About Jean Sheldon

I began writing mysteries at the age of 53. It was 2004 and I longed for something to take my mind off the political and social climate that had become overwhelming. Starting a writing career might not have been the most socially responsible path I could have chosen, but it offered a distraction, one that I like to think helped me survive to fight again. But why mysteries? I have delighted in the genre since the 60s when I first held a Chicago Public Library card in my sweaty little hand. The image of a scrawny kid in pigtails, weighted down with books and shouting, "You can do it" from my over stimulated imagination made me believe I should try. That was 10 years ago, and writing has proved to be much more than a distraction. I have learned to look closer and listen harder, to find answers beyond my limited view of the world. Writing has helped me become a better person. I can only hope those changes contribute, as well, to my journey to become a better writer.

Being a lifelong Chicagoan, I enjoyed the references to 1968, the convention, the city in general. A good mystery that I would love to see as Book 1 of a series!
