Author Sheila Grice


I’m an American author living in Australia with my Aussie husband, a demanding dog, and a backyard full of noisy birds and frogs.

I write psychological thrillers that keep the pages turning. I also write contemporary romance under my name, Sheila Grice.

My author journey began after submitting an unpublished manuscript into a Romance Writers of America (R) contest and winning first place. Encouraged, I went on to win and place in many more contests including the Maggie Award, Fool For Love, and The Linda Howard Award for Excellence. Slowly my stories veered toward one of my favorite genres, psychological thrillers. My debut thriller, The Family Tree, was published in 2021 and my next thriller, The Intruders, is coming soon.

Reading became a passion when I was in second grade and, bored with the selection of books offered in the classroom, I snuck into the library and picked up The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka. In high school, I was active in drama, writing school plays and winning a statewide award for Best Actress in a One Act Play. Forced to be an adult, I worked in commercial real estate and then advertising while finishing my B.S. in Business Administration. 

When not obsessed with working on my current manuscript – and annoying everyone around me in the process – I enjoy spending time with family and friends, laughing, drinking good wine, reading,  travel, walking on the beach, and shopping for comfortable, but pretty shoes.
