About Sheree Zielke

Sinister murder plots, cruising the Amazon in the middle of the night in hunt of gators, busting a bootlegger’s joint, teaching grandkids how to explore abandoned houses, Christmas in New York City. Sheree has written about all those things.
Sheree began writing when she was very young... When she was eight years old, her story, How Fire Came to Be, was submitted to a CBC radio program. It was selected as one of the best entries from across Canada. Upon hearing her name on the radio, she knew her destiny: she would be a writer. But that was also the year Sheree found an old Brownie camera in a dump. And so, her second passion was born.
Her first book, Martha's Vine, has been the proverbial labor of love. And of hate. After many false starts that began nearly two decades ago, the book is now nearing completion. The action story takes place in an apocalyptic world. The power grid is down and people are forced back to the basics. The law of survival is simple; it's the law of the jungle: "Kill, or be killed."
Sheree lives in Edmonton, Alberta. Read more about Sheree and her upcoming book, Martha's Vine, in her own words.
Sheree resides in Edmonton, Alberta with her husband, David, of 22 years. She has three grown children, and several grandchildren. She teaches digital cameras and photography through a local arts college and offers private tutorials, as well. She has been a travel bloggist, a journalist, a rock ‘n roll reporter, a live murder mystery playwright, and she regularly freelances articles to her province's newspapers.
