Lila Faye Cherney is the inspiration for this heartwarming and fun children´s story about a precocious little girl named Lila, who lives in a small Baja village on the ocean, in Mexico and an extraordinary sea turtle named Shelly.

After a chance encounter, Lila and Shelly became life long friends, while learning and sharing a few of life´s most beautiful lessons along their journey together. Lila and Shelly did not know it when they met, but they would save each other in ways they would never have imagined, helping each other to grow, while changing both of their lives forever!

During a family vacation ten years ago, in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico - Ron Cherney made an incredible discovery along a beautiful deserted cove on the beach. He found a baby sea turtle that was alone, struggling to get to the water, while a swarm of hungry birds circled around it. Ron scooped up the turtle, carried it to the water, and pushed it out to sea. When Ron returned home, he thought that this experience would make a great story, but he could never find the right motivation until ten years later, after the birth of his granddaughter Lila. Watching all of the love and affection surrounding her, Ron could not imagine anyone in life not succeeding with the right start, which is what brought his turtle story to life. He knew that he wanted a children´s story that he could dedicate to Lila, while inspiring other little children in the world.

In this age of technology, Ron still loves the colorful, turning pages of a printed book, and he hopes that his book will be the story that many parents read to their children at bedtime, showing that the goodness in all of us can and will prevail, if we believe in ourselves. Ron envisions the turtle and her pal having many adventures in the future, as they both grow old together.

Coming out of her Shell by Ron Cherney with Angel Logan has been named a FINALIST in the 2011 National Indie Excellence Book Awards.
