New York Times Bestselling author Sheila Turnage is a storyteller at heart, best known for her Newbery Honor book Three Times Lucky, and the award-winning Mo & Dale Mysteries series that followed.
Those mysteries are set in tiny, fictitious Tupelo Landing, North Carolina – just down the road from Sheila’s real-life home – and yours.
They include two New York Times Bestsellers, four Junior Library Guild award winners, and national honor books for the EB White Read-Aloud Award and the Edgar Award. The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing represented the state of North Carolina at the National Book Festival, hosted by the Library of Congress.
Sheila has written several other fiction and nonfiction books; her articles have been published by Southern Living, Our State Magazine, and the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, among many others. Her poems have appeared in Yellow Silk, Pinesong Awards, the International Poetry Review and other journals over the years. Her poetry collection, Just Off Half-Moon Road, came out in 2021 courtesy of Main Street Rag.
Her young adult novel Island of Spies is slated for publication by Dial Publishing/Penguin Random House in autumn, 2022.
