SHEILA HEBERT COLLINS

Sheila was born in Abbeville, Louisiana, the heart of Cajun Country. She was what you’d call an authentic Cajun since both her mother and father’s lineage traced back to Acadie in Canada. Sheila grew up proud of her Cajun culture. Teaching the lower grades for 20 years instilled a love for children’s literature. That passion for children’s literature, combined with her Cajun Pride, motivated her to rewrite cherished fairy tales with a Cajun twist. These fairy tales were designed to teach younger children French, as well as to develop Cajun pride.
Sheila didn’t start her writing career until she retired from teaching in Louisiana in 1989. In late 1993, her first Cajun Fairy Tale was published, Jolie Blonde and the Three Heberts (pronounced A-Bears), a Cajun Goldilocks. By 2004 she had eight books published (seven fairy tales and one historical fiction on the Cajuns) and had visited over 150 schools in Louisiana and many public libraries, reading her Cajun fairy tales and promoting cultural pride.
In 1999, Sheila became a school librarian, working at Indian Bayou Elementary. In 2002, Sheila was hired as a media specialist at Manatee Elementary in Florida where she worked for seven years. In 2009, she returned to Abbeville where she is an elementary school librarian. She continues to write about her culture and continues to visit schools on a limited basis.
Sheila’s name appears in the Louisiana State Artist Roster as an author and Cajun storyteller. She has made presentations for the Louisiana Reading Association’s local and state conventions. She has also made presentations for the Florida Association of Media Educators, Lee County Reading Festival, International Reading Association, Florida Gulf Coast University, and University of Louisiana at Lafayette.. She has visited over 150 schools in Southeast Region. and numerous libraries throughout Louisiana and Florida.
