Sheila Claydon

Biography

Born and educated on the south coast of England, Sheila Claydon has gradually moved northwards across the UK. Now living in northwest England on a stunning stretch of unspoiled coastline, she finds walking a constant source of inspiration as well as a counterweight to the sedentary life of a writer.
Interspersed with her writing is a long and varied career in health, education and employment. She likes to think she is a better writer because of those experiences, and also admits to basing some of her characters on people she has worked with in the past.

Although family is central to her life, she still finds the time to read, to write, and to travel. Many of the places she has visited feature in her books. Her fans say reading them is like buying a ticket to romance.

Her motto is a quote by the late Ray Bradbury: 'First, find out what your hero wants. Then just follow him.'
 She starts with plots, chapter outlines, characterisation, each time she starts to write a new story. Then the hero takes over and she follows him instead...'

She loves to hear from readers and can be contacted at http://sheilaclaydon.com where her books are listed and where she also writes an occasional blog.
