Sheila Carter-Jones has been described by Herbert Woodward Martin as one who writes with "immediacy of tone, voice and language." Much of her work to date charts in images and music the lived experiences of a small-town girl brought up in a house across from the boney dump of Republic Steel Coal Mines outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She has been published in Pennsylvania Review, Pittsburgh Quarterly, Tri-State Anthology, Blair Mountain Press, and Flights. Grace Cavalieri, producer and host of "The Poet and the Poem, from the Library of Congress," says that Sheila's recent book, Blackberry Cobbler Song, "premiers a narrative poet in the greatest tradition of American storytellers."
