About Ames Sheldon
As a child, Ames Sheldon knew she wanted to be a writer. After college she worked on the ground-breaking reference book Women’s History Sources: A Guide to Archives and Manuscript Collections in the United States (Bowker, 1979). That’s when Ames discovered her love for women’s history and for using primary sources for research. Once she retired from fundraising for a wide range of profit organizations (the Sierra Club, the Minnesota Historical Society), Ames finally had the time to publish her award-winning novels.
