Sharon C. Williams
Sharon is a native of New England, raised in Northern Maine. She lives in North Carolina with her husband and son. She is owned by a flock of birds. She has a B.S. Degree in Chemistry and a minor in Math and Biology.
Growing up Sharon never thought of becoming a writer. To her it was for people who had the skills to transfer amazing ideas onto paper. However her husband had mentioned to one of their friends that he felt Sharon wrote really well. Soon afterwards she started thinking of a story in her head and it just would not go away. Later that same year of 2009 she had two surgeries within 3 months of each other. With time to recover, she started placing her thoughts on paper and it just went from there. Since then a multitude of short stories, a novelette, children’s series, a true story on he war with squirrels and an anthology of short stories and poetry has been written. It always amazes her still how writing will take over a person’s life.
She tends to lose all track of time when she writes. The world could be coming to an end and Sharon would be oblivious to it. When this author is writing, she envision the scenes in her head. She tries imaging the reality of what is written down on paper. The different options, scenes and problems will be listed down on the side in case she can use them later. Sharon tend to write by long hand- the flow works better for her.
The authors you would see in her bookshelves would be Stephen King, Agatha Christie, Bentley Little and James Patterson.
The best advice she has ever received about writing was write about what you know. When she first heard this the first thought was “ Yeah, right.” But it really is that easy. A writer just needs to know a little tidbit and turn it into a short story and soon enough a book.
On the side she love to read,walk, exercise, go to the movies and listen to music. Sharon is a budding bird watcher on the side. She is a huge sports fan which includes baseball,basketball hockey and football. She is also a shutterbug and is always looking for the next big shot.
Two of her short stories were published in the anthology, Cassandra's Roadhouse, and two in the Dragons in the Attic anthology, which was written by her writing group, The Wonder Chicks. She has written the first two volumes of her children’s series which include “Jasper, Amazon Parrot: A Rainforest Adventure and Jasper: Amazon Friends and Family. The third has been written but not yet published.Her comedy novel about her war with her backyard squirrels, Squirrel Mafia, was also released in the spring of 2015. Her latest book, "Everyday Musings" which is a collection of short stories and poems was released Sept. 30th, 2016
