Shelley Gilbert


I am the Award-Winning Author and Artist of 6 original Fiction and Nonfiction books for Adults, Teens and Kids. Currently shopping my powerful novel, Swimming Naked with Jellyfish, among film industry principals to turn this intense story into a movie.

I am excited to announce the completion of my 7th book, an Adult Novel, GOGO NEWGIRL And Permanent Peace. I am currently looking for its publisher. Earth has never known permanent peace. In the 250,000 years since humans came into existence, our planet has had peace for 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, maybe, but then violence or war would break out somewhere on Earth. The one thing that humans all over the Earth want, more than anything else, we cannot seem to have. Why is that? GOGO NEWGIRL And Permanent Peace answers that question.

Anger over the brutal killing of her mother in 2265 unleashes a young girls fierce passion to save Earth from violent extinction and lead it to permanent peace.
