Shelley has taught fiction writing and has worked one on one with writers as a manuscript consultant on nonfiction, literary novels and in every genre from memoir to mystery to science fiction to horror. Several clients and students have gone on to become published authors. She has been cited in the acknowledgments or dedications of several published books, including a number of award-winners.
Singer grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and began her working life as a reporter with UPI in Chicago. During a checkered and mercifully brief journalism career, she met many famous people, at least two of whom were murdered, and many not-so-famous who are still alive.
She has done too many things for a living.
