Meet the Author

S.D. Henke


I’m Sheala Dawn Henke and I’m thrilled you’ve stopped by to visit! While you’re here, I’m excited to tell you more about myself and the stories I write. If you love books with a fantastical flare, squiggly twists, and nib-knobby turns, then you’ve come to the right place. A place in between, upside down and inside out of your imagination. A place where I hope you might be inclined to stay for a few winks. Because right here, in the tippiest, toppiest places could be where your hopes and dreams arrive.

My stories are never without the magic, love, adventures, and misadventures of courageous young individuals who must reach far and wide to discover what’s possible and achievable! These are tales of wonder where out of the dark we can see the light — altered, bent, and beautiful, these are the safe havens for every walk of life; every color, creed, and companion who ever believed in what is possible because…

“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!”   ~Audrey Hepburn

With so much to write and such little time, what  I can promise with wonders of words and tidbits of wisdom right here. I am passionate about bringing fantastical ideas to life. I write soul-affirming books that inspire individuals to seek their unique value and worth in this world! I’ve always loved collaborating with my student Muses who inspire the stories I write. They are the light on the page that brings every imagined world to life. Writing for kids, with kids is the best part of my job as an author and educator! Thank you for reaching out to let the light in!

Capturing Genius

In the Fall of 2011, I listened to keynote speaker and award winning novelist Stephanie Tolan speak about giftedness at the Colorado Association for Gifted Children's annual conference. If I had known how this moment would shape my future and the new path my life...

Let Us Read Books!

Marie Antoinette’s famous quote “Let them eat cake” lives in our psyche as a widget of well-placed morality versus superficiality, and although there’s no record of her actually having said it, the verbiage sticks as if it’s been etched into history’s mighty stone....

Fantastic Beasts

I’m not exaggerating when I say that this past year could qualify as a certain kind of beast. One who’s sustenance required a sort of burning down and rising back up to meet the demands of life, work, and an evolving industry. I liken my growth over the past year as a...

Plot Value

Very few things are more daunting than taking a risk on a crazy idea, born of naked imagination, and investing in that idea for nearly three years knowing it might lead you nowhere. For me, this risk was worth it and it eventually lead to the publication of Story...


Imagination is greater than knowledge.
