Shellene Ramsahoye has a Master in Speech-Language Pathology and has been a speech-language pathologist for twenty-five years, working mostly with preschool and school-aged children, in both healthcare and school settings. She also has a Bachelor of Science in Zoology. She has always loved writing and reading. Throughout her career, she has had the opportunity to read many children's books, learning what children love, what they talk about, and what makes them laugh. Wanting to contribute to the wonderful realm of literature and to hone her own writing skills, Shellene took creative writing and advanced writing classes. As she begins to wind down her private practice, Shellene finds herself spending more time focusing on her hobbies, which include writing and amateur photography. She also enjoys hiking and travelling with her family. Shellene lives in Wainwright, Alberta, on a large acreage with her husband and two teenaged children. She has two dogs, two cats, and two enormous goldfish. A Wild Ride is her first book.
