With Paul Maddern

Walking Wounded is set in Northfield Military Psychiatric Hospital in 1947; a large, understaffed and struggling institution on the brink of closure, just months before the founding of the NHS.

While Walking Wounded is a work of fiction, it is set in the context of real events which took place in 1940s psychiatry. It is based on extensive medical research and her own experience of treating sufferers of PTSD.

Sheila trained as a cognitive behavioural therapist at the University of Oxford, and worked with PTSD sufferers for more than ten years.

Sheila Llewellyn was born in England and now lives in Northern Ireland. She completed a PhD in Creative Writing at the Seamus Heaney Centre for Poetry in Belfast in 2016.

She has won the P J O'Connor RTÉ Radio One Drama Award and the Silver Award for the Best Broadcast Radio Drama in the New York International Radio Drama Festival in 2012.

She has also been shortlisted for the Bridport Short Story Prize, the Seán Ó Faoláin Short Story Prize, and shortlisted twice for the Costa Short Story Award.
