- Author BiographySheila Rae Myers became interested in writing while in college. She was most inspired by L.A. Smith who teaches her students to write about what interests them the most. Through the following years, one attempt at writing a novel after another failed as the characters lost their believability or the plot line failed after a few chapters. Inspiration came in the form of what Sheila felt was a plot line in a television crime drama which left her asking questions about what was happening behind the scenes after a terrible tragedy. The only answer she received came in the form of a short story she wrote. Detective Jake: The Search for Truth grew from a short story into a novel. Recognized as a pastor within the Society of Friends (Quakers), Sheila has a passion for discussing the issues people face today from a Christian perspective. She strives to find unique and interesting ways to share her Christian faith and has successfully used poetry, comedy, and her own life experiences to uplift and inspire others. Her guiding principle is based on the ideas a pastor can teach without preaching and a good testimony or story is often more effective than quoting Scripture. Planned as the first novel in a series, Detective Jake: The Search for Truth combines Sheila's passion for ministry with her interest and research of crime and the crime solving process.
