Biography of Nancy Crossman

Annabel Sheila grew up in Stephenville, a pretty little seaside town on the west coast of Newfoundland. She now calls Moncton, New Brunswick home and it’s there that she writes about the splendour of nature, the serenity of the ocean, and the wonder of love with a passion that comes from the heart of an author who is one with her muse. She is a member of the Writers' Federation of New Brunswick and has been published in Chicken Soup for the Soul, Downhome Magazine, Northern Cardinal Review, Feathertale, Travel Itch and many other print and online venues. Her poem, 'Sentinel', won the 2013 Castaways Poetry Competition in Rockingham, Australia.

Nancy Crossman's Works:

'Tell Me A Story' - a book of children's lyrical poetry, written and illustrated by Annabel Sheila.


'Sketches Of Destiny' - Justin could almost see her face as she held out her ivory hand beckoning him to come to her. Who was this mysterious creature, and why was it always the same dream? It was the summer of Justin’s fifteenth birthday and his dreams were about to become reality. Justin Willows was born with a very special gift. He had a unique ability to capture nature with his paintings, particularly the oceans, unlike anything the world had seen before. He was about to embark on an adventure that would change his life and lead him on a crusade to protect the oceans and all of the mysteries they hold.

'The Masters Garden' - Amazon & Kindle: There are times when things happen the way they do because they are part of an intricate plan we are not meant to understand until the timing is right.

On the corner of Vine and Harvey, in the little mining town of Brandon, Manitoba Kwon Lee finds serenity in his jungle-like garden. But he’s the only one who can see the beauty in the chaos that surrounds him.

His once famous oriental garden, with elaborate trellises, genuine jade interlaced footpath and rare, exotic flowers, had been featured in Better Homes and Gardens. But that was before he became a recluse, withdrawing in sorrow from the community he loved.

What begins as a harmless prank lands three fourteen-year-old best friends in a whole lot more trouble than they bargained for. A mistakenly shattered window brings them face-to-face with the man on whose property they are illegally trespassing.

Terrified they’re going to end up with criminal records, they agree to the insurmountable task of restoring the old man's wretched garden. But as they begin to strip away the years of neglect, something beautiful begins to emerge.

It’s a time of personal growth for Cassidy, Tanner and Michael as they learn the intricacies of nature, while reaping the rewards of a wonderful friendship with a man unlike anyone they’ve ever met.

Pen And Prose

My thoughts are precious gems to me,
Echoes of my heart,
They are reflections of who I am,
To me they’re works of art.
Only one me has ever been,
Or will ever be again,
So scattered glimpses of my soul,
I write down now and then.
Pen and prose go hand in hand,
