Hi it's me Shellie Stubsten, your friendly Aspiring Writer /Self-Published Author of Indie/e-Books. I enjoy writing Fiction, Fantasy, Romance, Thriller /Suspense, Horror, YA, or Adult eBooks. I find writing to be a creative expression which I hope to concur and share with lots of avid readers.
I currently live in Arizona, where the winters are mild and summers tend to be scorching. When I'm not writing I prefer to spend my time with family & friends, including the family pets. I have a big soft spot for all animals domestic and wild, living on this magnificent planet we all call home.

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the small town called Rapid City South Dakota. This is the home point of many generations of Native American tribes alongside the historical monument called Mt Rushmore and many more amazing wonders of the world from across it prairies to the thickly wooded Black Hills. I'm proud of my Native American heritage passed down to me through the bloodline of my Mother, all the way back to a sixth Grandfather named “Chief War Eagle.” But don't let the name fool you he was a peace maker. American History of the plains Indians is amazing. They have inspired me often and came out in my two-part novel called “Dark-Moon.”
When did you first start writing?
I started writing in college during my creative writing class. However I didn’t strive to the next level until my stepmother wrote her first book. It was her writing that inspired me to write more.
This is an Ice loving story of survival for a harp seal pup named Pago, born out on the arctic pack ice. His birth drops him into a world of freezing cold temperatures with a blanket of white snow littering the ground and danger around ever iceberg. ~
