Best-selling author Sheila Roberts has seen her books published in a dozen different languages and made into movies for both the Hallmark and Lifetime channels. She’s happily married and lives in the Pacific Northwest. When she’s not hanging out with girlfriends, speaking to women’s groups or going dancing with her husband she can be found writing about those things near and dear to women’s hearts: family, friends, and chocolate.


10 Things You Might Not Know About Beachside Beginnings

1. As part of my research I did a ride along with one of the local policemen at Ocean Shores, WA, which is the inspiration for my town of Moonlight Harbor
2. The Driftwood Inn is modeled after a small vintage motel in that town.I used to have a nervous tic just like my ongoing character Jenna Jones
3. I used to have a nervous tic just like my ongoing character Jenna Jones
4. I wound up cutting a very funny scene. My editor felt that, even though it was funny the subject matter was a little too dark and we were already dealing with the serious issue of abuse. This of course, is nothing to be taken lightly and I hope if someone in an abusive relationship reads this book she’ll be inspired by my heroine Moira Wellman and leave. We all deserve to live our best lives. In safety!
5. I always stock up on saltwater taffy when writing a Moonlight Harbor book and this one was no exception.
6. I had several fun book signings parties planned to celebrate the release of this book. That was all pre- COVID-19. Looks like all the fun will be taking place on line this spring.
7. The beauty mishaps mentioned in the book are things that all happen out here in the real world.
8. Many of the hair colors I mention in the book were inspired by designs by my pal, color artist Michael Lowenstein, owner of Ross Michael Salon. Check his work out on Instagram. Amazing!
9. Much of this book was written at the beach.
10. And now I’m out of things to tell you. So let’s just end with …. You don’t know if you’re going to enjoy this book, but I’m hoping you will. Stay well and happy reading!
About the Book:

Author: Sheila Roberts
Publisher: MIRA
Pages: 384
Genre: Women’s Fiction

Moira Wellman has always loved makeovers—helping women find their most beautiful selves. Funny how it’s taken her five years with her abusive boyfriend, Lang, to realize she needs a life makeover. When Moira finally gets the courage to leave Lang, the beachside town of Moonlight Harbor is the perfect place to start over.

Soon Moira is right at home, working as a stylist at Waves Salon, making new friends, saving her clients from beauty blunders and helping the women of Moonlight Harbor find new confidence as well as new looks. When she meets a handsome police officer, she’s more than willing to give him a free haircut. Maybe even her heart. But is she really ready for romance after Lang? And what if her new friend is in hot pursuit of that same cop? This is worse than a bad perm. Life surely can’t get any more difficult. Or can it?

With all the heart and humor readers have come to expect from a Sheila Roberts novel, Beachside Beginnings is the story of one woman finding the courage to live her best life. And where better to live it than at the beach?
