Sheila Booth-Alberstadt was born in Kristiansund, Norway, raised in Vero Beach, Florida, educated in Massachusetts and now lives in Fairhope, Alabama with her husband, Stephen Alberstadt and children, Signe, Sam, Saxon, Saylor, Payton, and Logan.
Sheila started Booth-Alberstadt insurance agency/Farmers Insurance Group, located in Daphne, Alabama in 1997. After the birth of her third child, she decided to stay home and her husband took over the agency. She home schooled for several years until the birth of her fourth child. She now spends much of her spare time writing books and providing her family a happy home.
Sheila has been a hospice volunteer since 1997 and also recruited her two oldest children to experience the gift of giving. "It's a beautiful experience to hold the hands of a complete stranger, with hope in providing comfort through emotion, touch or prayer, before making their final journey. Being a hospice volunteer has truly helped me appreciate life."
Her favorite interests are capturing memories through photography and writing self-help books geared for both children and adults. “I feel that being a child is more difficult than being an adult. My goal is to create a series of self-help books designed to give encouragement and direction when dealing with our everyday issues in life … and to leave a powerful message of hope.”
