Terry Sheils

Favorite Quote: "Man is the only creature who laughs... or needs to." (Anon. maybe himself)

Before he was able to begin fulfilling his lifetime ambition of writing on a full time basis, Terry Sheils devoted himself to thirty-five years of teaching drama and English at the high school level. He also found himself

  • coordinating the Dramatic Arts, and Theater Arts programs across the city of North York for 6 years
  • running workshops in drama and education for the Canadian Daily Newspaper Publishers' Association across Canada
  • writing and performing in early educational television
  • writing plays for student production
and becoming virtually the curriculum writer-in-residence for the North York Board of Education.

Then he began to take life seriously and, since his retirement in 1992, has doggedly written thirty-six manuscripts. "Ghost Writer" is Sheils' first novel published by Awe-Struck. As this novel attests, a sense of humor is central to his outlook on life.

Terry was born in Toronto, Canada in 1935 and still resides there with his wife of 43 years. They have two mostly grown daughters. Finally, his outstanding physical attribute, he says, is his left ear, which is much admired in concentric circles.
