Sheila Dibnah was born in Bolton. As a child – and much to her mother’s despair – she was more interested in toy cars, spanners and dirty grid-lids than the more traditional girl’s pursuits.
After a successful stage career that took her all over the world, she met Fred Dibnah in 1996 and married him two years later. For the next eight years, Sheila worked with Fred as his business and publicity manager and accompanied him across the country on his public appearances. Following his diagnosis with cancer, she nursed him almost to the time of his death in 2004.
Sheila is now an award-winning public speaker based on the Fylde Coast.
Her debut book A Cast-Iron Will – a memoirs about life with Fred Sheila has now turned to fiction, Historical Fiction. Her debut fiction title A Champagne Steeplejack is release on 31st October 2014.
