Sheila Claydon

Biography

Born and educated on the south coast of England, Sheila Claydon has gradually moved northwards across the UK. At present she and her husband live on the northwest coast of England on a stunning stretch of unspoiled coastline where 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, which mostly involved working to improve standards and opportunities for children, people with disabilities, and older people. 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.

As a writer she has tutored creative writing groups and organized and run workshops. She is also a published prize-winning poet whose work can be found in several anthologies. Prior to moving north she worked with the UK’s ‘Poetry in Schools’ programme, running 3-day events with pupils of all ages right across the educational spectrum.
