George Sheldon is based in his hometown of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He is an active and full time professional photographer and book author. This is not his hobby or a simple pastime. This is his passion and full-time work.

George started writing and photographing when he was 14. His first published work was in a magazine called S9. His first photo sale came the same year to the NFPA for film coverage of a major bank fire in the center square of Lancaster. He has been working and publishing since the mid 1960’s.

When he is not looking through a camera lens or adjusting a flash unit, you might find him writing about travel, Americana, business, history, or real estate. Sheldon is the author of over 30 books. For more about his writing and my books, click here.

George is also a Pennsylvania Mason and a proud member of Lodge No. 43, the Valley of Lancaster, and the Valley of Harrisburg. For more information about Freemasonry in Pennsylvania, access the PA Grand Lodge Web site. If you would like more information about becoming a Mason, contact me.

Before becoming a full-time writer and author, George Sheldon was a police officer and police chief.
