Sheila Rabe had every intention of becoming a famous songwriter . . . until she got a great idea for a book. She's been writing and publishing both fiction and nonfiction ever since. To date Sheila has seen eighteen books in print both in the U.S. and abroad. She has made the Walden bookstore chain's best-seller list, and her first contemporary paperback, All I Want for Christmas, was named best romantic sleeper of 2000 by Amazon Books.
Even though she has spent the last few years concentrating on books, she has still enjoyed songwriting and music. She spent several years playing keyboard and bass guitar in local bands, and her song "You Could Really Make Christmas for Me," was included on one of Seattle's early Christmas in the Northwest albums and featured on their TV special.
Known for her humor, Sheila is a popular speaker at writers' conferences and women's retreats. And when she's not writing, promoting her books, speaking somewhere, or nagging her kids, she can be found at her piano, composing songs.
