Tiferet Talk Host Melissa Studdard speaks with writer and psychologist Jacqueline Sheehan. They discuss Sheehan’s emotionally-riveting work, with a focus on the novel Picture This, released just this past May as a sequel to the New York Times Bestseller, Lost and Found, which has been optioned for film by Katherine Heigl, star of Grey’s Anatomy.
Sheehan’s other books include her first novel, Truth, published in 2003 by Free Press of Simon and Schuster; her third novel, Now & Then, published in July 2009 by Avon, Harper Collins; and her anthology, Women Writing in Prison, which is a culmination of eight years of writing workshops sponsored by Voices from Inside, an advocacy group for incarcerated women. As well, Sheehan has published travel articles, short stories, and numerous essays and radio pieces.
Sheehan teaches workshops at Grub Street in Boston and Writers in Progress in Florence, Massachusetts.
Of Picture This, Ellen Meeropol states: “This page-turner is a profound exploration of damage done in childhood, the nature of evil, and the difficulty of knowing what is true.”
