Sheree K. Nielsen is the 2015 Da Vinci Eye Award recipient for FOLLY BEACH DANCES – The Infinite Rhythms of a South Carolina, inspired by the sea and her lymphoma journey; and 2015 Eric Hoffer Foundation Art finalist. A multi-award winning multi-genre author, poet, and photographer, she finds inspiration and solitude in travel, nature, family and pets. She credits a deep affinity for the ocean to her parents, who taught her about discovering new destinations, spinning stories, art, and nurturing the soil.
MIDNIGHT, THE ONE-EYED CAT, (fall 2018, Amphorae), a picture book, has been nominated for a Chanticleer Little Peeps Award. It’s about overcoming handicaps, building confidence, and learning to be the best ‘you already are’.
OCEAN RHYTHMS KINDRED SPIRITS -AN EMERSON-INSPIRED ESSAY COLLECTION ON TRAVEL, NATURE, FAMILY AND PETS (Ocean Spirit Photography) is available on Amazon Kindle and paperback now. It’s about the connection we all have to each other, and a reminder to present in the moment, live life with abandon. Each essay leads in with an Emerson quote, and ends with a photograph of the adventure.
‘Healing’ and positivity are the messages reflected throughout Sheree’s poetry and essays.
Sheree’s other works are well-represented in Southern Writers Magazine, AAA Midwest & Southern Traveler, Long Weekends, Missouri Life, Whispering Angel Books, South & North Brunswick Magazine, Breaking Sad, Proud to Be Series, Well Versed, Storyteller, and websites and newspaper across the nation and Caribbean.
When not writing, she enjoys discovering new coffeehouses, and sinking her toes into soft, sandy beaches with her hubby and canine kids. Four content cats, including Midnight, round out her family. She has an uncontrollable dependency for dark chocolate!
