Missy Sheldrake is an epic daydreamer and a muse of positivity who weaves worlds full of character-driven, complex fantasy adventures.


In 2014 she dusted off an unfinished Tassy Walden Award-winning manuscript from her college days, started writing her first novel, Call of Kythshire, and never looked back. In four short years, she completed the five-book Keepers of the Wellsprings series, an epic high-fantasy young adult adventure that was awarded the Golden Squirrel Independent Book Award in 2017 for Best Fantasy.

When she isn't writing, Missy can be found creating fantastical artworks in paint and clay, wandering hidden forest paths, and concocting plots for imaginary people who are beyond real to her. She loves to hear from her readers, s

I've actually been blocked this week, and I spent the week in my art studio. I sculpt fairies out of polymer clay, so I was working on those. You can see examples of my fairies on my website.(less)

My novels have these themes, but but friendship always prevails. Light over darkness.

I love making people laugh with my tales. I love starting out with an idea for a character and making them more complex. Getting to the reason behind their personalities and the choices they make. Transporting a reader to a world I created. Showing them beauty and kindness and the love of family and friends, and what happens when those things are lacking.

The best thing about being a writer is helping others escape from their everyday stress into my beautiful, fantastic world.(less)

Mya: His Majesty’s Elite

I’m so excited to announce that my latest book is coming out in less than a month! Mya is a minor character in the Keepers of the Wellsprings series, but, like all of my characters, I knew her story went far deeper than I could venture within the tale of that series. Little did I know, she would bring me on a journey I never could have anticipated! Here’s a little taste of her story, and my upcomi
