Sheila Quigley's first dream was to climb mountains. Next she wanted to be an astronaut, this was down to her love of Science Fiction. Then she grew up, and her dream of one day becoming an author kept her going through a long list of jobs; machinist, presser, double glazing sales, market trader, and sometimes in the dead of winter she wondered what on earth she was doing plodding through heavy snow and ice knocking on strangers doors trying to sell them frozen food.
The hardest of these jobs though, was definitely picking potatoes on the local farm to keep the kids in shoe leather.
Sheila's first published novel, Run For Home was the subject of a fierce bidding war between eight of the UK's biggest publishers. The film maker Chris Terrril was commissioned by the BBC to make a fly on the wall documentary about the amazing story.
Sheila has four children( three daughters and one son) nine grandchildren- and three great grandchildren, though she still insists she's only 29.
