Throughout her career Shirley has worked in schools with many children of all ages. She has written and told stories since she was a small child. Now she enjoys telling them to her grandchildren.
The bedtime stories on this site are designed to be read aloud by an adult, or older sibling, to children aged 4 to 11 years. At the end of a busy day they take only a short time to read. The personalised form of the stories will engage the listener and encourage discussion.
Since that time Shirley has continued to write stories, and more recently has seen the publication of three books: two ghost stories for 7 to 10 year olds, and a book for young teens about some Justin Bieber fans.
