Sharon describes her writing career as having two stages. Back in the dark ages, before computers were in every household, she had three paranormal books published. The first one was condensed by Redbook Magazine, the first paperback original they ever condensed. Then life brought her an unexpected challenge by the name of breast cancer. After treatment she and her oncologist started a not-for-profit to provide information and peer support to breast cancer patients. With the organization up and running, she returned to her first love - writing. This time around she's writing cozy mysteries with a paranormal twist. Magick Run Amok is the fourth book in her Abracadabra Mysteries.
Here are some fun things about Sharon:
Do you have another job other than being a writer?
Not now. I was a founding member, President and peer support coordinator of Lean On Me, a nonprofit organization that provides peer support and information to newly diagnosed breast cancer patients.
Did you ever think you would be unable to finish your first novel/novella/short story?
Although there are always rough patches, I knew I'd work them out. The best place for me to work out plot problems is on the treadmill. Work the body, free the mind.
What inspired you to write?
I wrote my first story in first grade. My brain has always created stories and the need to write them down before they started spilling out of my ears.
What has been your most successful avenue to get reviews on Amazon?
Virtual book tours. The one I love is Escape with Dolly Cass.

November in upstate New York can be chilly, but Kailyn Wilde’s shop, Abracadabra, is a cozy respite where you can find lotions, potions, and plenty of warm, feline company. But what customers don’t know is that the proprietor has some unusual powers—and unusual friends, including the renowned magician Merlin, who’s been transported into the modern world. All of which comes in handy when there’s a murder to be solved . . .
Investigative journalist Ryan Cutler has perished in a car accident in New Camel, and his friend, Travis, suspects foul play—especially when the reporter’s notes reveal a mysterious list of dead men’s names. Kailyn wants to help, but she’s also got her hands full with the curmudgeonly Merlin, who’s not exactly maintaining a low profile. Between keeping the wizard under wraps and mixing up cold remedies that work like magic, she’ll have to tap into her many talents to figure out a killer’s fatal formula . . .
What is your next/latest project?
I'm closing in on the ending of the 4th book in my Abracadabra Mysteries. Book 3 releases May 1st.
