What inspired you to write this book?
This latest book release is book nine in the "My Son’s Wife" series. I never intended to write a sequel to a book let alone nine books, but that’s exactly what I’m doing. This series has been my bestseller and readers seem to want more and more. I’m already working on installment number ten. I’ve come to love the characters and see them in a realistic aspect. It’s a fun entertaining series with lots of drama.

 What can we expect from you in the future?
I’m working on more books that I call “Shorts by Shelia.” These are smaller books under 125 pages that are meant to give readers a short, entertaining read while they’re sitting in a doctor’s appointment, standing in a long line, or just taking a lunch break.
I also have another series called “The Real Housewives of Adverse City.” I’m working on book 4 in that series and expect to release it in late April 2019.

Are your characters based off real people or did they all come entirely from your imagination?
My characters are totally from my imagination, however, because I’ve been writing this series for a number of years, the characters seem real to me and have lives and personalities of their own.

 Do your characters seem to hijack the story or do you feel like you have the reigns of the story?
I would say my characters hijack the story. For me, this is a good thing. It pulls me totally outside of ME and allows my characters  free rein to act, do, speak as they so choose. I don’t like holding the reins because it might restrict what the characters have to say and it would put more of ME into the story when it’s not about me. I’m just the messenger.

by Shelia E. Bell
Genre: Inspirational Romance, Drama  


First Lady Audrey Graham believes she's found the perfect woman to become her eldest son, Minister Stiles Graham's wife.

But skeletons fall from the closet when Audrey and Stiles discover that Rena is in love and committed to the troubled, rebellious, ex-con, Frankie. My Son's Wife is more than a love triangle, it's a time bomb set to explode with twists, turns, entanglements and sinful revelations that only a loving God can make right.




My Son's Ex-Wife
My Son's Wife Book 2


The story of the Graham family continues in My Son's ex Wife. First Lady Audrey Graham is more than relieved when Stiles encounters the young, vivacious nutritionist Detria Mackey. Rena is equally captivated by recent divorcee, Robert Becton. Does the handsome, science teacher Robert Becton possess what Rena needs to give her life a much needed jump start? When Rena returns to Memphis for less than pleasant reasons, Stiles and Rena realize they still have deep feelings one another, but will their feelings overcome the past that severed their relationship? Will Audrey manage to come between them again or will other circumstances intervene that will give them cause to rethink their past and move forward to the future.

First Lady Audrey Graham is gone and her husband suffers from loneliness and the after-effects of his second stroke. Their son, Stiles, now minister of his father’s church, is engaged to Detria and has found happiness at last—despite his heartbreaking divorce from Rena. Rena’s now living in another state and has found a new love herself, Robert, though she resists his marriage proposals because she doesn’t feel she could ever be completely forgiven for her past sins. Things take a turn for the worse when Stiles’ father suffers another stroke and Detria has a miscarriage. Stiiles' faith is tested like never before. But who knows in whose arms he will land up in Book 3 in the page-turning My Son’s Wife series!

Stiles is further stunned beyond belief when he uncovers secrets that have been hidden away for years about the Graham family. In his search to heal the wounds of the past, he is hit with the truth about his very own mother, his one and only sister, Francesca (Frankie) and his new wife, Detria. What does a man of God do when the enemy pulls out all stops to destroy everything that he has believed in, including God's mercy and grace.

This startling revelation brings out the worse in Stiles Graham, and leads to his eventual downfall. During the midst of it all, Detria learns that she is pregnant. As much as she wanted to steer clear of Skip Madison and give her marriage to Stiles a fighting chance, her heart says something different. Now she finds herself worried about who is the father of her unborn child. Turmoil, trouble, deception and disaster infiltrate this marriage, and much is at stake, including Stiles pastoral position at Holy Rock.

The McCoys of Holy Rock
My Son's Wife Book 6


It's been two years since Hezekiah McCoy became the senior pastor of Holy Rock, and Hezekiah, First Lady Fancy McCoy and their sons are certainly shaking things up. Frequent and lavish vacations, a new and much larger house, and what seems like a never ending flow of cash, the McCoys are enjoying the tremendous favor of God, or could there be some other reason for their rapidly growing success? 




Dem McCoy Boys
My Son's Wife Book 7


Dem McCoy boys are rocking Holy Rock! The young handsome, charming, debonair Khalil McCoy is the new senior pastor and his fresh out of the closet brother, Xavier, is Financial Administrator and Youth Director.

My Truth My Time My Turn
My Son's Wife Book 9
**New Release!!**


The McCoys and the Grahams try to work together as Stiles makes a decision whether or not to return to Holy Rock. Hezekiah shows a softer side (or does he really), while Khalil makes it evident the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree.
