Biography

I write science fiction romance, but it's the literary definition of romance. Swashbuckle, Baby, in "white tie and tails." High romantic fantasies, million word mysteries, family sagas, statesmen, gurus and wise immortals. Loving dads, sons and brothers, and of course, the women who understand and appreciate them. High fashion and landscape design. Materials and art, the books are built to be read very fast, specifically for the way women visualize. Research on the soap operas of the fifties, trends in international populist (fan) fiction, technological development, and above all, long-term entertainment value. It has to be good in reruns. The intent is create a body of work that's just fun to read, in spurts or bursts over decades. Ethics, responsibility, nobless oblige, the power of money, the use of prestige. I write good guys win. Period. They're fantasies for women. Men with lots of muscle say, "I love you," a lot.

Most of what is currently published was written in the first decade, 1991-1999, before Mother Nature changed my personal definition of "mature audience." I hope you'll remain with me as I and my work mature and enjoy the second decade of my work now being published, as well.

I've lived many places and visited far more. My current residence is on a high mesa in New Mexico, in the United States, where I am engaged in a habitat restoration project.

Explanation of the Pilots Group:
Some of these works have been sitting on my hard drive close to twenty years and they're no fun for anyone just sitting there. They're exactly what they've been titled, pilots, like for a TV series. It is my intent and hope that other writers will choose to continue the adventures of the characters. There are only three restrictions. Don't kill off my heroes, don't make good guys bad guys and give my story credit if you publish. Yes, you may publish and make money on your stories. I loved reading and writing fan fiction, but the limitations on it could be frustrating, so... Have fun with these works that specifically don't have them.

Smashwords book reviews by Sharon L Reddy

  • Goblin Spells Unicorns on Sep. 18, 2012

    This is a charming little children's story, great for bedtime, more than once. There are several easily understood lessons in it.
  • My Butterfly on Sep. 21, 2012

    Stayed up to finish! I wasn't close to the end. Very late/early, I yelled, "Find out what it means, you dope!" I don't get into a story like that often. There were fewer typos than I've encountered in most 'big publisher' books I've read in recent years. There were a few places it could be tightened a bit and I, personally would have preferred accents be dealt with in another way, but I didn't stop reading and that's the bottom line. This story of healing and growth is a great romance and the author definitely conveyed the spirit and feeling of Scotland. Well done. Highly recommended. It was fun!
  • Yassa on Nov. 21, 2012

    Ordinarily, I don't care for books written in first person, but I read this one from start to finish. This fictional story of the early life of Genghis Khan and his imposition of Yassa, the system of law, on the scattered Mongol tribes, as he unified them into one people, blends known history with the story of his love for his wife. An interesting and definitely recommended read.
