I’m Shelly, a wordsmith, cultivating worlds and characters from my imagination while navigating through this third dimensional realm.

Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, I’ve been living in Colorado for the past 25 years, situated east of the Rocky Mountain Front Range in an old coal mining town called Firestone. I’m an aspiring writer working on my first novel with additional projects lined up along with some flashes, shorts and poetry in the mix. This is a personal writing journey, updating my progress, suggesting books or coursework conducive to the craft and some fun embellishments of photography, locations, ideas and novelties for readers and writers alike. Enjoy the ride!
