Read information about the authorSheilah has had a great education travelling and working in foreign countries, drinking in the culture and meeting lots of people. She has been a Bollywood movie extra in India, an art school model in Italy, a chambermaid in Germany, a bartender and a riding instructor in England, a theatre arts administrator, a library assistant, and a teacher of various subjects, primarily music and English, here in Newfoundland. Generally, nothing stops her. Somewhat fearless, or perhaps just ‘stunned’, she loves history, horses and dogs, good food and great stories.
Sheilah was born in Corner Brook, Newfoundland but now lives in Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s with her husband and, sadly, no pets at the moment. She has a BA in German Language and Literature and a B.Ed. from Memorial University, an ARTC in voice from the Royal Conservatory of Music and various diplomas from a British technical college. Just recently, she completed her TESL diploma with Acadia University.
For Maids Who Brew and Bake was published in 2003 and then a second edition was released in 2010. A historical look at 17th century Newfoundland, this book has excerpts from old English manuscripts and Newfoundland letters, descriptions of 17th century towns, recipes, and old cures. It paints a vivid picture of how Newfoundland’s earliest settlers might have lived. In 2004, “Maids” was one of five books from across the country nominated in the special interest category of Cuisine Canada’s National Culinary Book Awards.
Her most recent book, Rain, Drizzle, and Fog , was launched in October 2014. This book looks at the history of weather in Newfoundland and Labrador, the good, the bad, and the ugly, with early diary entries, newspaper reports/interviews and archival photographs.
Sheilah has published in Riddle Fence, Canadian Women’s Studies, and Downhome Magazine.
Full Speed Ahead is her first children’s book. Contact Sheilah through her website at sheilahroberts.com
