Meet Beth Bear Shields

February 15 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The story of a young mom starting her life again after divorce, Shields said Seamless was written both to entertain and inspire readers.

“It’s not all true, but it’s based on me — a character who doesn’t like change, is afraid to stick up for herself and because she’s little, she wears a platform in her shoe,” said Shields, who is 4 feet, 10 inches tall (and proud of it).

“When she gets separated, she has to put her big girl shoes on, step up and move forward.” —The Chicago Tribune

Growing up, Becca had always found peace driving down Weee Street. Now, with a cheating husband, two babies and a run-down house, she seeks shelter there daily. As she passes by each wall and gate, she wonders what happens in the beautiful homes beyond them. She imagines the perfect families and perfect, beautiful, happy wives with their perfect bags and perfect shoes…. Is it possible Becca’s life turning upside down and coming apart at the seams is just what she needs? With the help of her friends, a magical apartment, some unexpected introductions and a few doodles and scribbles and dots, maybe Becca could finally find comfort walking in her own shoes.
