Sheila Englehart grew up in the snow belt of western New York, spent her corporate life in south Florida, then became a “half back” of eclectic North Carolina. She’s worn many hats in the financial and medical sectors. In between she’s had an unconventional background of writing, retail, and farming. She’s been writing since the age of 13, shifting from short pieces to feature film scripts to novels and back again.
She gravitated to ghost stories and all things paranormal. She got married in one of the most haunted hotels in St. Augustine, traveled through the Bermuda Triangle several times dying to know what happened to thousands of vanished vessels like Flight 19. Her studies had her traveling through the unknown passages of the subconscious mind and she was certified in hypnotherapy, fascinated by the mysteries of life after death. Reading the tarot was the thread that wove it all together.
Her first novel Warning Signs is a paranormal suspense that explores the consequences of dabbling in spirit communication. It won Best Paranormal Fiction at the 2013 Mother Vine Festival.
Her soon-to-be-released novel Rock Doc is magical realism that follows a group of damaged musicians who encounter a psychic healer.

The band may be finished, but the brotherhood is still breathing. When word gets out that Benny is helping Chris get back on his feet, speculation about an Ursa reunion draws lightning to their doorstep.
