I am told that one should write in third person when creating an author page. Sorry, it sounds way too dry and stale, so here I go as me.
I spent much of my career as a freelance writer, reporter and editor. I’ve been telling stories since I was a kid. My inspiration comes from everyday life. I have written fiction, commentary, essays, features, and poetry. Find out more about my books by clicking on the Book tab in the menu. Check out more of my work on the other tabs.
My favorite thing to do is sit at my computer and write. I don’t know the meaning of writer’s block. When I sit down and enter the doorway into another realm – whether real or imagined – my brain turns off to any distractions around me. Ask my husband. Sometimes he has to repeat himself to get my attention. Sometimes more than once… or twice. This is the most patient man on the planet. I credit him with giving me the courage to follow my calling. I couldn’t do it without his good heart and understanding.
I hope you become a fan. I know that sounds a bit, I don’t know, needy, but the truth is, writers write to make a statement, tell a story, explore a possibility, plant a seed. The words only come alive when they enter the hearts and minds of readers. So, thank you for buying my books and reading my posts.
I am in the process of updating this site… again. Look for the latest episodic novel, Future Imperfect, which will begin appearing soon. You may contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Currently I am writing feature articles for the Las Vegas Optic. If you have a story idea, email me and I’ll see what I can do.Follow SHARON VANDER MEER on WordPress.com
