Sheila Connolly is two people these days: herself and Sarah Atwell.

Sarah is writing a new mystery series for Berkley Prime Crime. The first book of the Glassblowing Mystery series, Through a Glass, Deadly, was published March 4, 2008.

Sheila is writing a second new mystery series for Berkley Prime Crime. The first book of the Orchard Mystery series, One Bad Apple, will appear in August 2008.

Sheila's vital statistics: Married (to my first and only husband), one daughter, three cats. I live in a Victorian home in Massachusetts, not far from Cape Cod. I have more degrees than I know what to do with. Over the course of my life, I've lived in seven states, nineteen towns, and two foreign countries.

During my long and varied career, I've been:

  • an art historian (medieval architecture)
  • an investment banker in San Francisco and Philadelphia
  • a non-profit fundraiser
  • a professional genealogist (I had my own business, Lost Ancestors)

  • and finally, a mystery writer.

I really hope the writer label sticks, because I'm having a great time.

I love to travel, I can fix almost anything around an old house, and I'm passionate about genealogy.
