If the toughest competition you face is your own high standard, you will inevitably become better at your game, whatever the game may be.

Sheila Bautz is a talented writer with strong instincts. She is a freelance writer with The Leader Post and The Star Phoenix. Her articles have appeared across the nation, including in The National Post, as well as world wide.
Due to her years studying the art of writing, her memoir manuscript (working title When Companies Kill) received a positive review from KIRKUS. KIRKUS takes pride in their long standing reputation for being The World’s Toughest Book Critics. The manuscript’s published title is Walking The CutlineWhen Companies Kill, A Memoir.
KIRKUS's critics suggested Sheila Bautz's memoir for a similar read to the powerful book Radium Girls. Sheila considers this high honor to be both humbling and surreal. Read Radium Girls KIRKUS review here.
Continuing to study the art of writing and communication, Sheila believes that no matter where a person is at in their career, they should never be satisfied with their work. There is always something to be learned and improved.

Currently, Sheila is working on one of her Fantasy manuscripts for potential USA representation, with other options presenting themselves as well. The song by Beyonce is the main theme song of her current Fantasy manuscript.
Sheila is also fleshing out a book tour and public appearance schedule for her Memoir.
Her other works are in various stages of development and include a Historical Fiction, another Fantasy manuscript and a project compiling her poetic prose combined with her wildlife artwork. Sheila plans to align with an organization that promotes education on domestic violence while dispelling commonly held myths, and donate a share of the proceeds from her poetic prose and artwork publication to aid with speaking out against various forms of suppression and violence against women and children.
