Like her character Claudia Rose, Sheila is a real-life handwriting expert who testifies in forensic cases. She began studying handwriting in 1964 as a senior in high school. Her Master of Science in Psychology helps put her conclusions about handwriting into a solid framework of personality.

Her analyses of celebrity handwritings have appeared in Time, Teen People, the Los Angeles Times, and Mademoiselle, among many others. Her award-winning Handwriting Analyzer software is used around the world.

Sheila has lived in the United States since she was a young teen. She resides in Southern California with Lexie, the Very Bad (sometimes Evil) Cat.
