Nice to Meet You! 

I’m Shelley Burbank, a fiction writer, ghostwriter, and freelance journalist. Whether penning a true-life profile for a newspaper or journal or dreaming up a short story or novel, my passion is to share stories about creative and talented people: artists, craftspersons, entrepreneurs, designers, teachers, scholars, and healers. I write in order make sense of the world, to explore everyday gracious living, and to express the  joie de vivre of intellectual, spiritual, and creative pursuits. 

If this appeals to you, I invite you to explore my website, check out a few blog posts, and sign up for my monthly newsletter. Welcome and enjoy!

Love, Shelley
