Missy Sheldrake is an author/illustrator who has been conjuring images of fairies in one form or another since she was very young. The wind in the trees and the rich scent of forest earth are her most treasured sources of inspiration, and on most mornings you will find her wandering the wooded paths, dreaming of the next adventure she hopes to put to the page.

Missy was born in Connecticut and attended Western Connecticut State University, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Art with a concentration in painting and illustration. Even then, in her free time, she was writing. She moved to Northern Virginia several years ago and lives there now, on the outskirts of Washington D.C., with her true love and their son. She published her first

Sometimes if i'm really blocked, I'll reread through my entire draft. If it's just a small block, I'll go out and take a walk.

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)

You’ll never guess what I’ve been up to in the last few quiet months. After I finished and released Call of Elespen, the final book of the Keepers of the Wellsprings series, I took a few months off for a much-needed rest.  I did some artwork and focused on cleaning up my crazy mess of a house. It didn’t take long for me to really miss writing, though, so I’m excited to inform you that a new boo...
