“pulls you in from the first page”


Dennis Sheehan (Author)

Thank you for popping into my Website.

The top row of buttons take you to other sites where I publish my poems and short stories,

The Gallery pages show you some of my paintings, many of which portray my passion for the ballet.

I hope you have time to explore these pages.

Until recently, I have had time to spare, which I have given freely to  

support, help, advise or guide fellow writers and artists.

A change in circumstances means this free assistance is no longer available.


In February 2016, my stroke memoir

Never Say I Can’t

Received the indiePENdents Seal

For quality.


My moment of pride quickly evaporated into sorrow,

With the announcement that  

the indiePENdents.org

Would shortly close. My book would be the last ever to receive the prestigious seal.



Rather than see it close, I contacted the organisers and offered to manage the indiePENdents.org and coordinate the indiePENdents seal.

I a delighted to tell you that my offer was accepted. The whole organisation is now under my umbrella of responsibility.


The new website is up and running at
