   Writers: Shelagh Pratt Mooberry  
  About the author  

Shelagh Pratt Mooberry left her native Indonesia to attend convent school in England where, when she was about ten or eleven, she started writing stories in collaboration with her best friend. The two of them continued turning out story after story for three or four years.

For a very long time after she grew up, Mooberry did not write anything. After coming to America, she became too busy working for a living, getting married and divorced and raising three children. When her youngest child had gone off to college, Mooberry wrote a novel that she thought was "pretty bad," and this resulted in her taking some creative writing courses at City College of San Francisco. One thing led to another, and, she graduated from U.C. Berkeley in 1992 with a degree in English (BA). Only in the last five years has she been able to dedicate the large amounts of time and energy her writing demands. She says writing tends to take over her life, but that itís worth it because she has rediscovered the joy it brings her.
