Sheila Gibson Stoodley


Professional Experience

I'm a skilled storyteller who is eager to meet your needs. My experience with writing and editing for print and online comes through working for the Robb Report family of magazines, Art & Antiques magazine, Hideaway Report, and others. My specialties include luxury hotels and resorts, travel, art, antiques, collectibles, interiors, design, food, medicine, and history. The hundreds of topics I have tackled include sailing to the North Pole on a nuclear-powered icebreaker; the joys and terrors of opening your own museum; the rise and fall of Polaroid film; the history and future of anesthesia; and world-class cheesemakers in Vermont. In 2017, I launched The Hot Bid (, a blog that showcases intriguing lots that will sell soon at auction. I am schooled in SEO, AP style, blogging, and web copywriting and editing. I am smart, conscientious, flexible, witty, and kind. I read voraciously. I post new and classic articles to my social media accounts every weekday. (
