A Bit About Me

Hiya! I’m Sharon, and thanks very much for visiting my website. Make sure you’ve got a cup of tea to hand, then settle yourself down for a good browse.

I write uplifting women’s fiction – “love, laughter, and happy ever after”.  My main characters will always get a happy ending – I guarantee it. Mind you, I like to make them work for it, bless them.

I’m a member of the Society of Authors, the Romantic Novelists’ Association, an Authorpreneur member of The Alliance of Independent Authors, and I’ve been a KDP All-Star Author on several occasions. How fab is that? I’m still in shock to be honest. It’s all thanks to my lovely readers who are a truly smashing bunch. I couldn’t do any of this without them. 

Because of them, in 2018 I was lucky enough to be able to give up my admin job at a local medical practice, and take up writing as a full-time career. It was a risky move but I’m ever so glad I went for it. I love writing and I honestly think I have the best job in the world.

I live with my husband (the expert tea-maker) and our daft-as-a-brush German Shepherd dog, in a house that’s blissfully quiet now our five children have all left home. Yep, five children. Thank the lord someone told us what was causing it … 

I have a love/hate relationship with sugar (I love it, it hates me), I’m a bit obsessed with Doctor Who, and I absolutely love Cary Grant movies. I mean, Cary Grant – what a dreamboat. I must also admit that I’m prone to all-consuming crushes on fictional heroes. Jamie Fraser, Poldark, Sherlock, Sidney Chambers … ooh, where was I? 

Oh yes. I grew up and still live in the East Riding of Yorkshire, and the Yorkshire coast and countryside feature strongly in my novels.

So, if you love stories with beautiful Yorkshire settings, lots of humour, romance and friendship, gorgeous, kind heroes, and heroines who have far more important things on their minds than buying shoes, then you’ll love my books.

My latest book, To Catch a Witch, the third in The Witches of Castle Clair trilogy, was published on 28th April, and is available to buy here

Right now, I’m working on the next novel. As Charlotte Bronte, author of my all-time favourite book, Jane Eyre, once said:

I'm just going to write because I cannot help it
