Happiness: Books to read, coffee to drink, stories to write. 
Hi, and welcome to my Wattpad page! I'm a chick lit/women's fiction and romantic suspense author. My fiction has been published in national magazines TRUE STORY, TRUE CONFESSIONS, TRUE LOVE and in little & literary magazines THE KATHERINE PRESS REVIEW and THE MAINE REVIEW.

In 2014 I wrote my first Wattpad book, DISGUISED. Six years later, it has been picked for the Paid Stories program! My romance thriller FINDING PENNY made the Watty's 2018 shortlist and was a Wattpad Pick.

I was thrilled to be invited to join the WATTPAD STARS program in August 2019.

Chick lit/women's fiction here on Wattpad is tres important to me, so I am an administrator of the Chick Lit Nest @ChickLit_nest -- a resource, community, and celebration of all things Chick Lit and Rom-Com.

I am also a published ghostwriter. THE LAST TEN DAYS: Academia, Dementia, and the Choice to Die by Martha Brosio with Shelley Burbank was traditionally published in July 2019 by Myers Education Press.

A Maine native, I've recently moved to San Diego, California with my husband. My twenty-something daughter and her bf also live here in SD. Other than reading and writing, I enjoy knitting, watching tv and movies, and exploring interesting places. Coffee is one of my major food groups. I LOVE dogs.

Thanks for checking out my profile! xoxo Shelley

What can we learn about writing stories from watching movies? A bunch! With that in mind, I'm deliberately choosing chick flicks--from noir to rom-com, from current to classic--to watch and hopefully...
