Shirl enjoys gardening in her greenhouse, cooking holiday dinners and listening to jazz. When deadlines permit, she loves to travel. Her son works in telecommunications and keeps her computers running. When she can con him into it, he digs holes for new shrubs and builds bookcases for her ever-expanding “keeper” collection. In addition to helping with research and choreographing action sequences for her books, her husband is charged with the care and feeding of their very geriatric tomcat. All humans in the Henke household “live only to serve.”
She has appeared on the USA TODAY Bestseller List, been a RITA finalist twice, received a Bookrak Bestseller Award, and won three Career Achievement Awards, an Industry Award and three Reviewers Choice Awards from Romantic Times. Shirl is a member of the Authors Guild, Romance Writers of America, Novelists, Inc., Sisters in Crime and International Thriller Writers.
Shirl wrote her first twenty-two novels in longhand with a ball-point pen and quips that it’s hard to get good quills these days. Dragged into the 21st century, she now uses those “devil machines.” Another troglodyte bites the dust.
