Shelleen Weaver spent part of her growing up years in a 12’ by 24’ cabin with no electricity and no running water, where her greatest dream was to build the perfect fort in the woods. But bigger dreams came calling. She was first bit by the performance bug the summer of her 16th year. She competed in the Miss Teen of America Scholarship and Recognition Pageant where she pushed through her fear and recited an original poem. Shelleen fell in love with how the power of words can reach past people’s minds into the deep parts of their hearts. (And took home the title, Miss Teen of Pennsylvania.)
Years later, the pain of a broken heart drove Shelleen to express her poetry in song on her grandmother’s old broken-keyed piano. And in 2009, she recorded the album, Rough Tracks. The album produced a CRW # 1 one hit song, Enraptured.
Shelleen and her husband have two adult daughters and a young son whom she affectionately calls her caboose. Having spent years sending them off to sleep with original lullabies and bed-time stories, she began to realize the value of sharing them with others, and the Fruit Fables series of books was born.
Shelleen is also a homeschooling mom, women’s ministry speaker and singer who is passionate about seeing others fall deeply in love with Jesus, and her greatest desire is to know Abba with an unwavering child-like heart.
Shelleen, her family, their 105-pound dog, and two special needs cats live in the stunning “Garden Spot of America”, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
