For my latest EVENTS, hop on over to Folly Beach Dances.

I offer freelance writing and photography, as well as workshops. Please see below.


“Every Picture Tells a Story” Workshop

A two-hour creative writing workshop stressing the importance of photography in writing. (Taught to veterans at the Jefferson Barracks VA)

I’ll reference Ann Lamott’s book “Bird by Bird – Instructions on Writing and Life” as part of the workshop curriculum, including my photography, and writing aids for “hands-on” class exercises.


Book Cover Photography; Photos for Publications

My personal photo gallery is available for use in your book cover design. Visit Ocean Spirit Photography’s facebook page for ideas. Or let me know what you’re looking for, and I’ll find it in my collection.

My photography appears on the cover, or inside:

Cuivre River Anthology IV, Folly Beach Dances, Modern Magazine (NY), Missouri Life, AAA Southern Traveler, AAA Midwest Traveler, Proud to Be: Writing by American Warriors series, Shifts – A Women’s Anthology of Hope Through Change, among others…


Inspirational Readings for church congregations or recovery groups

I’ll share my essay on finding hope again, entitled “Finding My Religion”, published in Whispering Angel Books, Soul Survivors – From Trauma to Triumph.

(Be email for pricing on above)


Have a question about writing? I’m here to listen.

  1. Hi Sheree,

    I met you when I was temporarily working at the Siteman check-in desk. We talked about photography and our love of cats… I came across your business card in my wallet and wanted to say hello and ask how you are doing. I signed up for email updates and am excited to read some of your posts.

    I have been dabbling with writing a series of children’s books. I have the stories in my head and just need to get them down. Maybe you could mentor me?

    Take care!
    Diana Madrid

    • Dear Diana,

      It is so nice to hear from you. How are you cat babies?

      We should talk about your project? Feel free to email, call me or even connect with me through Ocean Spirit Photography on facebook.

      Hope you are doing well.
