Shelley Gill's books on Alaska and the Pacific Northwest have sold more than a million copies since she stopped papering her bathroom with rejection slips and helped start a children's publishing company in Alaska.

Shelley lives in Homer with her Mom, her animals and her way cool daughter, Kye.About TEDxIn the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
