Sheila Holmes

Biography

I have been in love with the written word since I was old enough to read. After graduating college, I taught high school until I decided I wanted to spend more time "creating". So, twenty years after beginning to teach public school, I "retired myself" and now I write full time.

After living half my life on the West Coast, we moved all the way across the country, where we now live on the East Coast. It is just the two of us after our one daughter had the audacity to grow up, marry, and move away. However, that "move away" is only five miles from our home.

While writing, I also own and run four website businesses:
http://www.marriage-vow-renewal.com
http://www.certificate-of-marriage.com
http://www.romancebetweenthelines.com
http://www.romantic-christmas-ideas.com

I looove to create, whether it is designing marriage vow renewal certificates, marriage certificates, creating romance plans for married couples, or writing books. I'm blessed by the Lord to do exactly what I love.
