Sheena Mann

Biography

My name is Sheena I am fifty five years old I live in Aberdeen, Scotland. I graduated from the University of Aberdeen in 2011 with a Master of Arts Degree in Sociology. I work full time as a carer, I have two adult sons, I had two dogs the first being the one my books are about, he died in 2014, my other dog I still have she is nearly ten. My love of writing started at school and I have been trying to publish a book ever since, although there were years in between when I didn't write anything. The inspiration for these books came from my dog whose real name was Mutley, he was such a funny dog, he always made me laugh and so when he died I decided to write about him so other people could share his stories and hopefully they will laugh too.
In the near future I hope to publish an adult book about the psychic experiences I have had since I had a near death experience in 1991. I have written three books altogether about Mutley and my other dog Evo, I have written two books exclusively for my grandchildren and at the moment I am writing a short story about Jane a teenager who is being bullied at school.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
When I was fifteen, I started writing short stories at school. After leaving school and in between jobs I think I had too much time on my hands to fantasize about things. I began by writing poetry, I admit I wasn't very good. I bought my first typewriter and typed out a few poems, I sent one away to a magazine (I can't remember the name) and it got published. While I was a stay at home mum I started to write a novel, believe it or not I'm still trying to write the same one. I wrote these books because I wanted my dog to be famous.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans so far have all been my family, work colleagues and other people I have met through work, also some of my Facebook friends. I really appreciate the fact they have read my books and spread the word, without any followers you wont sell any books.
