Shirley Smith ’06 Lopez

Shirley Smith ’06 Lopez has published
many books and is now retired and opened a
bookstore, Shirley’s Bookshelf, in Lansing,
Michigan. She also teaches others how to
become writers, helping young authors get
published, students to earn income while in
college, stay-at-home moms and retirees like
herself. She notes that she is hoping to repay
the many who helped her along the way, and
reports that she learned many of her techniques
in writing while a student at Hope, when she
earned an income as a freelance writer.
