Persistent

“Persistent” is a collection of poems from mystery writer Jean Sheldon who sees all of life as a mystery. This book reflects that view. "Scribbled notes from daily life have filled my pockets and backpacks since childhood, but recent events have nudged me to examine both life and my words. In these poems I have found a measure of peace, and it is a peace hope to share.” More

About Jean Sheldon

I began writing mysteries in my mid 50s. 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 over a decade 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.
