ABOUT ME

ABOUT ME

owen-2

I am a fiction writer, a university professor, a copy editor and an online writing teacher. My first Romantic Suspense: Thicker Than Water (Brands Crossing Series) was published in 2011 and the second book in the series, Whatever Goes Around, will be published in 2017.

My short stories and poetry have been published in Descant, Concho River Review, Iron Horse, American Literary Review, Trinity Writer’s Workshop newsletter and collections of Christmas stories.

I am blessed with a loving family, a multitude of friends and the good fortune to share a cozy sanctuary in North Texas with my four-legged roommates.

I inherited a vivid imagination and a compulsion to create alternate realities from my maternal grandfather.

He was natural-born story teller. In another century he might have been a Seanchai (an irish storyteller/historian who related adventures that became part of the Irish legends).

In our family, Grandfather passed along an oral history that brought our ancestors to life.  These stories instilled in me a love of family drama and a curiosity about all the interactions of family members  through succeeding generations, and the inspiration for the world and characters in the Brands Crossing Series.

The literacy skills I developed in school give me the opportunity to put those stories on paper. Although the written version never quite matches the perfection of those images in my mind, I persist in the attempt to present characters and situations that intrigue, inspire and entertain.

  1. The blog looks great!

  2. Nice blog, Sharon! Just wondering…why did you post twice on Oct 9th? More than once a day might not be as effective (readers can’t keep up). Your kitties are adorable! Good luck with your romance series!

    A suggestion: put facebook and twitter buttons directly on your blog post page, along with more share buttons: StumbleUpon, Digg, Reddit, etc. Just a few ideas!

    Best,
    Kathy Owen (aka K.B. Owen)

    • Thanks for all your comments and suggestions. I’ve made the changes to my blog you suggested. My kitties thank you as well.

  3. Sharon, thank you so much for introducing yourself to me. We are definitely like-minded writers. I look forward to not only reading your posts, but also your books!

  4. You’re such a talented writer, Sharon. Eager to read your book…grateful we’re in touch!
