Shelley Burbank

Women’s Fiction Writer. eclectic reader. Coffee drinker.

"This is perfect romantic comedy, very funny."
-- Wattpad Reader, commenting on DISGUISED


I’m Shelley Burbank, a writer of women’s fiction, romance, and romantic mysteries. My stories chronicle the adventures of goal-oriented women who are busy building careers, navigating relationships, and trying to maintain a well-balanced life. Sometimes they make mistakes, but no matter how far they veer off-course, they find their way back again, wiser and stronger for the journey.

Reading is my great pleasure. Authors are my heroes. Journal-writing is my therapy. Libraries are my cathedrals.

And coffee is the reason I get up in the morning.

"A picture is a poem without words." Horace

Happiness: Books to read, coffee to drink, stories to write.

Shelley Burbank lives in San Diego, California. Her roots are deep in the rocky soil of Maine. She has been published in the confession market and little & literary magazines, writes for fun on, and has ghostwritten a memoir which will be published in October 2019.
