Sharon will talk about her writer’s journey, from the riveting scene in her mind that prompted her to begin her novel to its eventual publication. Sharon was born in Lewiston, Idaho and raised in The Dalles. A University of Oregon graduate in Health Education, she worked on the Oregon Coast for ten years before moving to Bend, where she now resides with her husband Jonathan. They have two grown children.
