Going Vintage with Sheila English
As a writer of modern gothic and re-imagined horror classics, I love old, beautiful things. I write about Frankenstein, so I love science fiction/fantasy of which Frankenstein falls into both categories (my books also have romance/thriller in them as well). So, I doubt anyone will be surprised by my hobbies.
Sheila’s latest releases……..Adam Frankenstein: Search for a Soul: A Collection of Short Stories
Adam Frankenstein believes he is immortal because he has no soul. As life gives him opportunities to prove his worth he finds that doing what’s right isn’t always made clear and that being a monster is sometimes the only way to survive.
Marked – A woman, her face half covered by a golden mask, offers herself in exchange for Adam’s help. A mob has mistaken a child with special powers as a witch and look to kill her. Adam may have taken on more than he bargained for as the child marks him in ways that will change him forever.
Last Man Standing – Adam is accused of murder and a group of men hunt him down until Adam is forced to become the monster he’s accused of being. But, sometimes the worst thing that can happen is to find yourself the last man standing.
Freak Show – Adam looks to fulfill the dying wish of his business partner and goes to America to find Jericho Nivens, the man’s estranged son. The house where Jericho lives is made of magic and offers to make every dream come true. However, once the bargain is made, you can never leave. The house wants Adam and will give him everything his heart desires. As the cost becomes clear Adam tries to convince Jericho to leave with him… if they can.
The Madame and the Madman – No one loves revenge like Victor Dracula. When Adam asks his vampire friend to help stop a brothel that abuses children Victor’s wrath extends to Adam. Adam is left with a terrible choice; take revenge or let revenge take him.

I worked in clinical laboratory science for 18 years. I worked in management, was a teacher at Ohlone College in Fremont, CA., and was an international speaker on a number of topics being blessed with the opportunity to speak at Oxford, UK at one point in that career. I was also an expert witness on many cases in California. And I was instrumental in changing laws in California so that phlebotomists had to be state-certified. I have the alphabet in an arbitrary string of letters at the end of my name. Having done all I wanted in that career I thought, what about entertainment? That has to be easier. Well, it’s not. I started COS Productions and the idea of book trailers. I copyrighted the term “book trailer” which no one really cares about anymore, but I’m still proud of that accomplishment. I’ve worked with National Geographic, most every publisher in New York, George RR Martin, Christine Feehan, RL Stine, and other super cool authors whose names you’d likely recognize. I freely admit that it’s a very cool job.
