Sheilah Lukins

Sheilah Lukins has had a great education travelling and working in foreign countries, drinking in the culture and meeting lots of people. She has been a Bollywood movie extra in India, an art school model in Italy, a chambermaid in Germany, a bartender and a riding instructor in England, a theatre arts administrator, a library assistant, and a teacher of various subjects, primarily music and English, here in Newfoundland. Generally, nothing stops her. Somewhat fearless, or perhaps just ‘stunned’, she loves history, horses and dogs, good food and great stories.
Sheilah was born in Corner Brook, Newfoundland but now lives in Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s with her husband and, sadly, no pets at the moment. She has a BA in German Language and Literature and a B.Ed. from Memorial University, an ARTC in voice from the Royal Conservatory of Music and various diplomas from a British technical college. Just recently, she completed her TESL diploma with Acadia University.
She has been published in many magazines including, Riddle Fence, Canadian Women’s Studies, and Downhome Magazine. Her previously published books include Rain, Drizzle and Fog (Boulder Publications) and For Maids Who Brew and Bake (Flanker Press), which was nominated in the special interest category of Cuisine Canada’s National Culinary Book Awards.
