Sharon Kleve

Biography

I was born and raised in Washington and currently live on the Olympic Peninsula with my husband, and our sweet cat Ardy.

I love romance. I love reading romance, living romance—who doesn't, but I especially love writing humorous paranormal romance. There's no greater feeling than watching my characters come alive in each other's arms. Most of all, I love giving my characters the happily ever after they deserve—with a few bumps and bruises along the way.
One of my favorite things is picking up a new book and sinking into the story, immersing myself in the emotions between the characters. I hope someday to inspire readers the same way my favorite authors have inspired me.
My desire to write came in my youth—people were constantly telling me, “You tell a great story, you should write a book about your adventures.” I usually just embellished on the truth—to make it sound more exciting and funny.

When not writing, I can usually be found either curled up in my recliner with my cat and a good book, or in the kitchen baking sourdough bread or bagels. I also enjoy walking with my husband, even when its raining

Smashwords Interview

What does your desk look like?
My desk sits in a nook, overlooking my front yard. There are several bird feeders, a fountain and water dishes available for the critters to come visit. My cat Ardy sits on the windowsill and chatters at the birds.

I keep a pair of my husband's reading glasses on my desk so when I say, "Why is my screen blue?" He can quickly grab his spare pair and fix my problem in a jiffy.

I keep the postcards and letters from my fans handy as a reminder as to why I'm in this crazy profession.

I usually have a pile of swag lying around; ready to send to a reader who took the time to comment on one of my books.

I always have a stack of edits that I'm working on from my wonderful critique group.

My husband bought me this wonderful frame that says, "Obey the rules? NEVER!" I love it.

Last, but not least, I always keep copies of my paperbacks on my desk to inspire me to keep writing.
Where do you hail from and what do you love most about your hometown?
I'm a true-blue Washington-Ionian. I was born and raised in the Seattle area and moved to the Olympic Peninsula in 1990.

I love the close proximity to the mountains, water and of course a short Ferry ride to Seattle.

    I love Ms. Berkom's Kate Jones series and was hoping for the same wonderful writing, and got it. Incredible suspense, grisly murders, and sex. What more could you ask for? Maybe a sequel? I hope so.
