Timber Shelton - Writer ExtraordinaireAbout Me

Comments: 2 Comments

I am Timber Shelton, aspiring paranormal horror writer from the Great Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee. My passion for the written word began when I was just a little girl in pig-tails and fell head-over-heels in love with my first novel, E.B. White’s,Children's Fantasy Novel "Charlotte's Web" ”Charlotte’s Web“.  Since then, I have dreamed of writing books that made others feel that way but didn’t really consider it a possibility. Thirty years later, I am finally working to make that dream a reality.

After years of searching for something I was good at (that could actually pay bills), I discovered I had a knack for selling vintage clothing and lingerie online – aka Late*Bloomers on eBay – thanks in part to a little creative advertising. I rode that wave for about a decade. That gave me the courage to start dabbling in some freelance writing.  Since then, I have written for several websites, including the SendaBuddha.com, Wisegeek.com, and Insidejobs.com, and had a feature article published in “Antiques & Collecting Magazine“.  Now that I am entering the second part of my life, I think I am finally ready to throw caution to the wind and write what I love to read.  It is high time to piss or get off the pot.I am currently in the beginning stages of writing my first two horror/paranormal novels.  I’m anxious to see which manuscript fleshes out first.  Right now it is a toss up, because they both contain interesting characters who are ready to tell their stories.  I hope you will join me as I document their journey into the great unknown with this blog.

My dear husband of more than twenty years and my darling daughter cheer me on and lift my spirits when I feel like a big literary loser (which is often). I also have four furry assistants: two cats that take turns lounging on my desk as I work, and two Chihuahuas that are usually napping at my feet. With their help I hope to finally become the novelist I think I was always meant to be.

Wish me luck.
