A bit about Shelley:

Shelley grew up in California’s Central Valley, the daughter of Dust Bowl immigrants who made good on their ambition to get out of the field. She recently retired from teaching writing at Sacramento State University and still consults with writers in the energy industry. She co-directs Stories on Stage Sacramento, where actors perform the stories of established and emerging authors, and serves on the advisory board of 916 Ink, an arts-based creative writing nonprofit for children. Copy Boy is her first Jane Benjamin Novel. Tomboy (She Writes Press 2022) will be her second. She and her husband live in Sacramento with an aging beagle and many photos of their out-of-state sons.
