Sheila Morris was born and raised in rural Grimes County, Texas, and is a first-year Baby Boomer. She is a cum laude graduate of The University of Texas at Austin and has a master’s degree with honors from The University of South Carolina in Columbia. She comes from six generations of Southern Baptists and did graduate studies for two years at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas, before she served as a minister of music in several churches during her early years in South Carolina prior to the inevitable severing of her ties to that part of her heritage as a result of her activism. She has overcome, and moved on.
Her career as a CPA, college accounting instructor, stockbroker and financial advisor spanned four decades and three states including two years in Seattle, Washington. She received numerous awards for outstanding performance in the corporate world and retired with remarkably little fanfare from her position as vice-president of investments with a major financial services firm in 2008.
She lives with her wife Teresa Williams and their dogs Spike and Charly in Columbia, South Carolina.
P.S. She began writing in 2006 and finds she has a lot more to say than anyone would have thought.
