Toward the end of her forty-year career as a leader of science museums, including the Arizona Science Center, Sheila Grinell began to write fiction.  Appetite, her debut novel, was published by She Writes Press in May 2016. Born in a taxi in Manhattan, Sheila studied at the Bronx High School of Science, Harvard University, and the University of California at Berkeley. Sheila moved to Phoenix in 1993 to build the Arizona Science Center. A dozen years later, in her sixties, she took on a different challenge–to begin a second career as a novelist. What was it like to start all over again?  She will also offer a few insights on what it took to go from aspiring author to published author. She can visit her website www.sheilagrinell.com for more information.
