Sheila Hendrix Interview

First of all Sheila, I would like to thank you for taking the time out for this interview! 

If you have to describe yourself with one word, what would it be?


What did you do before you were a writer?

I’m actually a nurse for a psychiatric hospital. I’ve been doing that for 20 years.

How long did it take you to write The Betrayal?

About a year, off and on.

What is the main source of inspiration for your writing?

I had a nightmare. Things don’t usually scare me but this one dream scared me to death. When I finally calmed down and thought about it, I figured it would make a good story, so I wrote it.

Is there a place you go for inspiration to write?

I love the outdoors and I like to go out on my back deck and just let my thoughts wander.

Are you reading anything right  now?

I am reading Happy Ever After by Nora Roberts.

What is one food item that you can’t live without?

Dr. Peppers. I go into withdrawls if I don’t have one every morning. LOL!

What do you like to do when you are not writing (hobbies, etc.)?

I love to read, camp, hike and work in my garden. I also like to go to craft shows and flea markets and I love to travel.

What advice would you give to those aspiring writers out there?

Don’t give up. If you have a story that needs to get out, let it out. Don’t quit and don’t let anybody tell you, you can’t. If you have a dream, make it happen.

Is there anything else about yourself that you would like your readers to know?

I’m Irish. I have a fierce temper and I don’t know when to keep my mouth shut. It gets me in all kinds of trouble.

What is next for you in 2011?

I’m working on the second book in McCannon brothers series. It’s a prequel to The Betrayal.

How can your readers contact you?

They can also send me an email. Shendrix726499@yahoo.com.

Thank you very much for taking the time out to answer my interview questions!

You’re welcome Cheryl and thanks for having me on your blog.

The Betrayal by Sheila Hendrix
Two brothers hunt the supernatural so we don't have to. Eighteen year old Zachariah McCannon was forced to grow up fast. His parents left him to raise is younger brother, Matthew. No easy task. Matt has powers and because of that Zack stays on his toes to keep him safe. When a demon ask Matt a question, "How far will you go to save your brother," Zack replies, "As far as I have to." Now evil is after them and if they're not careful, neither will be able to escape!
