About A.H. Shelton

I'm a mother of two adult sons, and Nanny of a beautiful Destiny. I'm an Ovarian Cancer survivor, and current chemo patient, as well as an Ovarian Cancer advocate. I'm hoping to spread awareness, and try to help save lives in the process. I hope to one day write a book about my journey, and my immense faith, which getsw me through.

 

My label, OneTrueDestiny Press, has double meaning - I'm following my one  true destiny, and of course it's named after Destiny Marie. She is my inspiration in making my dreams come true, In doing so, I'm also teaching her that you must believe in yourself, and no matter what anyone tells you, CAN'T is not in your vocabulary - and you must never, ever give up on your dreams. It is a legacy that I am proud to pass on to her, because one of the most important messages we can send to our children today is to believe in themselves in every aspect of their lives.

My characters are my children as well, and I have a special place in my heart for each one - I hope that after reading them, you'll feel the same way.

This is another amazing book by A.H. Shelton. It had just the right amount of horror and humor. It definitely had you on the edge of your seat and was one that you will not want to put down. I have read it teice now and loved it both times! A. H. Shelton is hands down the next great Horror Fiction writer and has the appeal of other greats like Stephen King. I am excited to see what comes next from her!
