About Me


Thank you for dropping by the inquisitive domain of Shell DeToni. Please feel free to look around and if there is anything she can do for you, please don’t hesitate to let her know.

Since memory serves, there has been a pen or pencil in Shell’s hand as she composed thoughts, ideas, and dreams. Growing up in a small farming community, she yearned for adventure that wasn’t accessible in a place surrounded by wheat fields as far as the eye could see. Subsequently, she read and fell in love with books.

Reading made it possible to travel to far away lands, different time periods, and alternate realities. Those escapades that’d been unveiled, fashioned a longing for her to write.

Shell is an accomplished freelance writer for hire. Her articles and copy advertorial’s have been published with Meridian Life, Eagle Life, Madison Publications, Todayz Publishing’s, and the Idaho Hunting & Fishing Guide. Shell also creates forms and guidance letters for various companies, corresponds via email with clients for businesses, writes resume’s along with cover letters for personal clients, ghostwriter, and compose diversified essay’s, poetry, and short stories.

As an author and a poet, Shell creates captivating short stories and eloquent poems. Participating the  NaPoWriMo and NaNoWriMo challenges, Shell has discovered a hidden passion for poetry.

Her work includes, but not limited to:

  • Features with reference to extraordinary people and businesses

  • Adventures for the family

  • Historical expositions’

  • Educational editorials about health, nutrition, beauty, and travel

  • Short stories

  • Poetry

  • Writing copy and advertorial’s for hotels, restaurants, campsites, recreational parks, museums, historical landmarks, and clubs.

“I’m a true realist who has learned no matter what you may want in life, you must work for it. Nothing in this world comes easy or cheap. Nonetheless, if you want it bad enough it’s all worth the effort.” ~ Shell Toney
