Sharon K. Garner
Sharon K. Garner writes so she can snag all the great comebacks that often elude her in real life, although she manages to voice her fair share. She began her writing career with disastrously detailed diaries, moving on to simply loving words, books, and reading. Living in seasonal Pennsylvania, she chooses to write her stories of love and danger set in warm, tropical, even exotic, locations. A former library cataloguer and newspaper proofreader, she now does freelance copyediting and proofreading for other writers. In her free time, she reads mystery and suspense novels and prances around her living room doing walk aerobics. Her published titles, in a combination of hardback, trade paperback, large print, and electronic formats, are River of Dreams, Sanctuary, Lokelani Nights, and The Spaniard's Cross.
