About the Author:

Sheila Morris was born and raised in rural Grimes County, Texas, and is a first-year Baby Boomer who graduated from The University of Texas at Austin.  She has a master's degree from the University of South Carolina in Columbia and currently lives and writes in both states.  She considers herself to be an essayist with humorist tendencies and credits her storytelling abilities to her grandmother on her daddy's side.  She wandered for forty years in a wilderness of numbers as a CPA, financial advisor, stockbroker and accounting instructor but rarely bores her readers with details of this prior life.  She is a social justice activist who lives with her partner Teresa Williams and their four dogs.   writersheilamorris.com.   redsrantsandraves.com.

Review:

Warning: Deep in the Heart is a bittersweet, funny, and triumphant tale of a different sort of girl in a uniform sort of world. --Leslie Lange, author, Dyke Drama: Your Guide to Getting Out Alive

Rural Texas can be a difficult place if you're a little butch tomboy who wants nothing more than boxing gloves for Christmas and a chance to kiss a girl on the basketball bus. This is the story of 'answers unspoken to questions unasked.' But more than that, it's the author's elegy for the idea of family that grounds our hopes of home and happiness even when our lives take us further and further away. --Ed Madden, author, Signals, winner, 2007 S.C. Poetry Book Prize; founder/producer, Rainbow Radio; associate director, Women's and Gender Studies, University of South Carolina

Sheila Morris shows a deep and abiding love for her endearingly eccentric family. . . and her descriptions of the angst and yearning of a good girl cum budding lesbian will break your heart. If you grew up in the '50s or '60s, or you were raised in the South, or you felt love you couldn't have, or you just like to laugh, spend an evening or two on the sofa after dinner with this wonderful book. --Linda Ketner, social justice activist, leadership and management consultant, Charleston, S.C.
