Sheila Kelly Welch
Sheila has written and/or illustrated twelve books for various ages. Her first novel, DON'T CALL ME MARDA, was a finalist for the national Benjamin Franklin Award. Three of her short chapter books are read by schoolchildren around the world. Her two most popular books are LITTLE PRINCE KNOW-IT-ALL and A HORSE FOR ALL SEASONS. Her novel THE SHADOWED UNICORN was on the short list for the Prairie Pasque Award (similar to the Rebecca Caudill Award in Illinois), and a review in Booklist likened it to BRIDGE TO TERABITHIA. She illustrated two popular historical novels, SEAN'S WAR and SEAN'S QUEST, and a picture book, SOMETHING IN THE AIR. In 2011, her new novel, NOT TIMOTHY, will be published.
