My name is Shirley Petrandis. I began writing at the age of 5, when I started piano lessons and creating my own songs. Reading, even at the earliest age, was one of my greatest delights and I spent many an hour curled up in my grandmother's upholstered chair reading anything and everything from The Old Man and The Sea to Great Expectations.
I have been writing poetry and lyrics my entire life. In the past I have worked with musicians, putting lyrics to their songs. At present, I have a novel in final edits called "McCade". Keep an eye out for it!
