As a child, she expressed herself through poetry, pouring out her feelings about love, adventure, anger, and being bullied. As a grownup, Sharon’s career as an educator and special education curriculum developer found her writing reports and grants. Her childhood love of writing resurfaced with a vengeance when she retired.
Adventures of Lusair
The Book Series
"I highly recommend Scaredy, a YA Fantasy, to anyone with a child who has been afraid of the dark, heights, or bullies at school. The main character is an anxious boy who is forced to deal with his fears when he goes on an unexpected adventure. I asked my ten-year-old grandson to read it to me. He was laughing out loud, literally, but not as loud as my husband. We all loved it! If you know a kid, this book makes a great gift."
