I’ll Call It Like I See It – A Lesbian Speaks Out is a collection of personal stories and reflections on the challenging contemporary issues of the 21st century as told by a lesbian activist with a Southern accent. Rich with the mixture of wit and wisdom that is the tradition of Texas women storytellers, no stone goes unturned. From faith to football to finance to fantasy and everything in-between – the topics are as diverse as the author’s background. Readers of Sheila’s two previously published memoirs will recognize the outspoken voice of a storyteller who is unafraid to tackle taboo topics but does so with humor and compassion.
Sheila Morris was born and raised in rural Grimes County, Texas but called South Carolina her home for over forty years. She is the author of two award-winning memoirs, Deep in the Heart – A Memoir of Love and Longing and Not Quite the Same. She is an essayist with humorist tendencies and believes she inherited her storytelling abilities from her grandmother on her daddy’s side.
