It is with great excitement that I introduce a new element to my blog, “This Month’s Featured Author”.
To kick things off, let’s get started with my friend, Author Sharon K. Connell whom I have only met recently as I endeavoured to switch genres from Horror to Fantasy, Inspirational and Christian fiction.
In the short time I have known Sharon, I am already inspired by her genuine kindness, compassion for others and her writing. She is an inspiration to me and I am so grateful our paths have crossed at this time in my life.
Here is a little bit about Sharon copied from her website:
| Born in Wisconsin, lived there five days until my Irish father decided to move to Chicago, Illinois, following jobs in his trade as a carpenter. There, for most of my young life, I grew up and attended school through college. In 1988, I moved to Pensacola, Florida to attend Bible school. My residence remained there for just under twenty years after graduation from Pensacola Bible Institute. However, I have visited all but six states in our beautiful country and love to mention some of my discoveries during my travels in my stories.
During my working career, I held clerical positions in the medical field and in advertising of one sort or another. In 2013, I retired from the workforce and moved to Houston, Texas, where I now enjoy every minute of my writing career.
Today, my hours are spent writing stories about people who discover (as I have) that God will allow things in your life that will help you grow and/or increase your faith. I hold a certificate in fiction writing from the International Writing Program through the University of Iowa. My genre is Christian Romance Suspense in general, but I do write short stories in other genres as well.
While waiting for editing to be completed on my writing or a proof to arrive before publishing, I enjoy painting. You can see some of my artwork in The Art Gallery on this site.
Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14
During this whole month, Sharon’s image will be displayed in the sidebar section designated: “Featured Author of the Month”.
