About Sheelagh Kelly
Sheelagh Kelly was born in York. She left school at fifteen and went to work as a book-keeper. She has written for pleasure since she was a small child, but not until 1980 were the seeds sown for her first novel, 'A Long Way from Heaven', when she developed an interest in genealogy and local history and decided to trace her ancestors' story. She has since completed many bestselling sagas, most of which are set in or around the city of York.
