More About the Author

In the 1980s Sheila Claydon wrote a number of romances under the pseudonym Anne Beverley, then life got in the way and before she knew it she had turned her back on the characters who were begging to be liberated from her imagination, and stopped writing.

Now she is back to writing fiction again and, considerably older and no longer shy, she writes under her own name. She loves to hear from readers and can be contacted at http://sheilaclaydon.com where her books are listed and she also writes a blog.

Born and educated on the south coast of England, Sheila has gradually moved northwards across the UK. At present she and her husband live on the northwest coast of England on a stunning stretch of unspoiled coastline where she finds walking a constant source of inspiration as well as a counterweight to the sedentary life of a writer.
Interspersed with her writing is a long and varied career in health, education and employment, which mostly involved working to improve standards and opportunities for children, people with disabilities, and older people. She likes to think she is a better writer because of those experiences, and also admits to basing some of her characters on people she has worked with in the past.

As a writer she has tutored creative writing groups and organized and run workshops. She is also a published prize-winning poet whose work can be found in several anthologies. Prior to moving north she also ran workshops for the UK's 'Poetry in Schools' programme, running 3-day events with pupils of all ages right across the educational spectrum.

Although family remains central to her life, she still finds the time to read, to write, and to travel. Many of the places she has visited feature in her books. Reading them is like buying a ticket to romance.

Her motto is this quote by author Ray Bradbury: 'First, find out what your hero wants. Then just follow him.'

She starts with plots, chapter outlines, characterisation; she knows all the rules and faithfully follows them each time she starts to write a new story. Then the hero takes over and she follows him instead...'

A great read for the lover of romantic fiction. The author has had a number of books out this year and if you are looking for some light holiday reading (not quite 50 shades level of detail !!) then these books are a great shout for a quick and enjoyable read.

I like this book it's storyline is interesting. BUT I think it should be longer or some of the characters should be removed allowing those remaining to be fleshed out more. We know what happened to Carl but I would have liked to see more of him and his interactions with the other characters. The same applies to all the characters. In a way it is a compliment to the author that I find the characters that intersting; but it has left me feeling that I really wanted more which is why I gave the book 3 stars instead of four.

Another heart warming romance from Sheila Claydon. Sheila is excellent at conjuring up very realistic characters that as a reader you want to get to know. The plot is that of the traditional romantic novel - you know how it's going to turn out in the end, but getting to that ending is a very enjoyable journey. I particularly liked the setting of the novel, and relished being transported to sunny Florida where I could almost hear the sea and glimpse the dolphins in my mind's eye! The family saga that the novel touches on is interesting, and actually I would like to have got even more involved in the ins and outs of the Marchand family. Maybe the author should experiment with a longer novel so she can expand her intriguing plot lines and fill out her very human characters? In summary, a must-read for romance lovers.
