Sharon grew up surrounded by books and dreamed that one day she would be an author. She won her first writing competition when she was thirteen and attributes her ongoing longing to write to her Year 8 English teacher who told her she should be a writer.
That dream came true many years later when her first two picture books There’s a Shark in the Loo and Who is at the Zoo? were released by Larrikin House in 2020. She has a third upcoming title also with Larrikin House. Prior to that she had numerous short stories published in different anthologies- two CKT e-books; Creative Kids Tales Vol 1 and 2; A Christmas Cornucopia 2019 released by Christmas Press; a tale for the adults in Sproutlings: A Compendium of Little Fictions; and a story in Blast Off April 2016 with The School Magazine.
She believes in magic, that somewhere dragons are hiding, and that trees are the best of all growing things. She will tell you that there are whispers of stories waiting to be told all around us – you just have to listen.
One day, she would love to have a pet donkey…and a wombat…and an owl… Instead, she has a dog, a cat, and some fish.
If you can’t find her, she’s probably curled up somewhere cosy with a book, off on another adventure.
