Literature Reviewer

Sheila has been in this fight since she was six-years old. A devotee of the dark side since she was a first grader seeing Star Wars, in 1977, her first movie crush was Darth Vader. She’s currently feeding an obsession with Kylo Ren, whom she refers to as her “dark side” cupcake. Despite a love of reading and literature, she has not ventured very far into Star Wars book realm and is thrilled at the opportunity to do so, now.

Star Wars runs deep in her family as her parents kept her out of school in third grade to see The Empire Strikes Back the day it was released in theatres, and she and her two siblings often have conversations using only Star Wars quotes. She is a proud of being a middle-aged woman with Star Wars bedding and a Death Star disco ball in her bedroom.

Sheila also blogs for Diary of a Sith Chick, as Squire of the Knights of Ren, and is currently working on Mary Sue fiction as well as an academic research paper on Kylo Ren — her dream is to be part of the Blackguard.

One major challenge that this single mother faces is that her 11-year-old son is not a Star Wars fan (although his nursery was Star Wars themed and he was dressed as Darth Vader for his first Halloween and a Rebel scum pilot for his second one), but he seems to be slowly learning the ways of the Force as he really enjoyed Rogue One and asked her to take him to see Solo.

Her geek flag also flies high for Marvel’s Legion (oh, how she just loves, loves, loves this series!), Star Trek and Star Trek: The Next Generation as well as The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

When not indulging in Star Wars, she takes on a role as professor at a college in Los Angeles County teaching critical thinking and argument as well as freshman composition. She also volunteers on the board, as a proofreader, and tutor for an education advocacy group. And born and raised in Southern California, she bleeds Dodger blue, so her favorite baseball team also gets a lot of her attention. Somehow she also eeks out time to camp, travel, practice ballet and flamenco dancing, and bake.
