Meet the Author

S.D. Henke

Cheers!

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!

The Last Dance

The Last Dance

I don't know about any of you, but I assume we've all had thoughts of our own mortality with everything going on lately. And, interestingly enough, I've recently found myself thinking about that on a grander scale. I mean, what would it actually be like to live life...

‘Do Not Open Until March 23rd’

‘Do Not Open Until March 23rd’

Everyone doing okay? I'm only asking because if you're anything like me, your head is spinning lately with all the news trickling in. We're all hunkering down, trying to see straight around the daily updates and news we can't simply avoid anymore. This COVID 19 scare...

The Beast of Change

The Beast of Change

When change comes, as it always does, we sometimes stand in its way. Other times we embrace it with open arms, but no matter how we react to it, one variable never seems to budge—ready or not, here it comes! Our path in life and the simple fact that we're human sets...

A Saga for a New Year: A New Hope

A Saga for a New Year: A New Hope

I woke up this New Year's morning with zero idea on how to ring in the new year. What I knew for certain was that my day always starts with writing. Okay, I thought, I'll start with some kind of New Year's resolution-y thing to ring in the moment. Hubby’s been sick,...

Toxic Wasters

Toxic Wasters

There are toxic transactions, people, and patterns in our everyday lives that often seem to impede our growth and evolution as we make our way out on to the path to becoming. It isn't so much that we opted to invite this into our lives, but more in line with the fact...

Tricks Are Treats- The Heart of Character

Tricks Are Treats- The Heart of Character

What makes a character three-dimensional? Is there a secret recipe to bringing them to life on the page? I believe it's much like the folding and unfolding of the universe. Layers of a character can open portals to the known and unknown. Writers who spend much of...

On Finding Your Crea-ture

On Finding Your Crea-ture

We are all made of Creation. Some even say we're the stuff of stars. But what's even more exciting to imagine is that we all have a unique Crea-ture living inside of us. These are beasts of every color, shape, and size. They only speak our individual creative tongue....

Kid-wisms “Creating is the Best Time You Can Have with Yourself.”

Kid-wisms “Creating is the Best Time You Can Have with Yourself.”

Every now and then I get a glimpse into the mind of a child. As I wrap up my 20th year teaching, I reflect on the moments I’ve captured in what I liken to the Golden Snitch of kid wisdom. All the magic wraps up with a little open-ended time and end of year provocation...

Re-articulating Change

Re-articulating Change

Change is something we seem to approach as humans with fear, avoidance, and even disdain. It’s like something in us isn’t wired to accept it. Yet, it’s through the nature of change that we share in the human experience. Nature itself a study in change. What would a...
