About the Author

Sheila Maureen Farrell was born in Pasadena, California on August 26, 1933. She attended public schools in Pasadena, graduating from Pasadena City College in 1951. She started her working life at age 19 at Citizens National Bank in Los Angeles and then went into the field of medicine where she was secretary to the Chief of Medicine at the Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Angeles. She later returned to banking and spent 26 years at Union Bank in both Los Angeles and San Francisco. Sheila and her brother, Richard Jerome (aka Jerry) Farrell, lost their father in 1939 and were raised in the family home on Maple Street in Pasadena by their mother. When Sheila was in the 6th grade, she made up for her total dislike of math by reading more books and writing more book reports than required, hoping she wouldn’t flunk the 6th grade. Her teacher, Mrs. Hilton, wrote in her autograph book, “To Sheila who may someday be an author.” Sheila carried that thought all these years and began serious writing in the late 1970's when she created her first book, “Another Damn Cookbook.” That was followed by “What’s Sauce for the Goose....” In 1961 Sheila married Richard “Dick” Murray and became a wicked step-mother to three “kids”, Cynthia, Valorie and Rick, and thus wicked step-grandmother to six grandchildren and now five great grandkids. She is just as proud of her “kids” as she would have been had they been “the fruit of her looms.” When she lost Dick in 2009, she was bored, sad and lonely and it was then that the thought came to her to write a bio of her newly found friend, Jeraldine Saunders. It was an instant connection and she and Jeraldine have become fast friends as you will discover when you read the book. Jeraldine opened up to her and the result is wonderful -- a great story about a great lady who did it the hard way -- by working. Sheila lives in Glendale, California in the same little house where she and Dick had many wonderful times.

Pack your suitcase and step aboard with Jeraldine! This read gives you information how she became "the Love Boat Lady".

I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the life of this most entertaining lady and the pictures are worth the price alone. Who would know this sophisticated Cruise Director came from a humble background and endured numerous hard knocks and the deaths of dear ones on the way up to the pinnacle of success in sea cruise life. She took all the blows on the chin, held her head up high and carried on with elegance, charm and high style all learned from her day to day struggles. The cover picture shows she's still a most beautiful redhead with an engaging smile and
that tells me there's a lot of lessons to be learned in reading the philosophy she maintained living her life.

Format: Paperback
This snazzy bio of the Irish lass who created the hugely popular television series "The Love Boat," which was based on her personal experiences as the first female cruise director of the high seas, is filled with witty and titillating first-person insights reported in delightful fashion by author Sheila Farrell Murray, and accompanied by more than 80 pages of intimate photographs in glorious color and black & white of the gorgeous Ms. Saunders and more than a few of the rich and famous personalities who've adored her. This "authorized real life story" will make you wish you'd known the charming redhead all your life, or at least followed her famous column, "Omarr's Astrological Forecast," which appears daily in newspapers worldwide. The photos alone are well worth the price of this marvelous book. It was a great honor for me to be chosen to design it for Auld Shamrock Press.
