Blessed to be born into a strong Irish American family, Sheila describes herself as ‘one of ten’. Sheila raised her son, as well as a plethora of other children she calls her own, and now enjoys the title of Grandma.
When asked about her writing, Sheila states, ‘I devoted the first phase of my life to my parents and family, the second to my children, this last phase is for me. I love to write, share my somewhat skewed vision of the world, and with luck, make people laugh now and then.’
General Information About The Tea Series
The characters in the Tea Series are people you’d like to know and part of a family that welcomes you with open arms. More than 125,000 copies of the books in this series have been sold. You will find that each book in the series is a fast and fun read. Each installment is a hybrid of the traditional novel and the serial novel (each is a full-length novel and leads directly into the next installment – the series is best when read in order.)In Hot Tea, Cara O’Flynn finds herself in an unusual position. She’s quit her job and can afford to take a few weeks to find a new career, plus, her roommate has run off and left her with an empty room to fill. If she can just accomplish those two tasks before her mother finds out she has no income and no one to help pay the bills, she’s in good shape.
The problem – Cara didn’t plan for three careers in as many days nor did she anticipate the new guys that dropped in her lap. And then there’s her sister Teagan, always helpful and funny, she can be a bit annoying at times.
Sweet Tea – the second book in the Tea Series begins right where Hot Tea left off.
Iced Tea – the third book in the Tea Series begins right where Sweet Tea left off.
Cara and Teagan are dealing with wishes gone awry. The serial murderer, if there is one, is still out there. The new guys are supportive, as is the family, but Cara and Teagan don’t want the people they love most in danger. Knowing there is a serial murderer in your sphere of influence is disorienting. What you do has consequences, but that doesn’t mean you see them in advance.
The crazy cop is around more than ever. There is a wedding to be planned and although Cara has always been the organizer of the family, she’s not even kept in the loop.
Life has been spinning out of control for some time and now it’s up to Cara and Teagan to put it to rights.
