About Sharon Hannaford

Sharon has been calling herself a writer since she was eight years old. She wrote her first auto-biography at age ten. As a teenager, she was teased about being a witch, because she wore lots of black and walked around with her black, Oriental cat on a lead. She never disagreed too loudly, after all, that may have drawn attention to the herd of unicorns that lived in her back garden.
Born and raised in South Africa, she has called New Zealand home since 2008. Her life consists largely of looking after her husband, two kids, three cats, a dog, a pony and a horse, but her working day is spent writing, and her occasional hours off usually include books, horses or a glass of good red wine.
Though she has had many jobs over the years, her favourite is, without doubt, being paid to write about the characters who take up residence in her head. After an early foray into writing for children, Sharon discovered Urban Fantasy; the genre that felt as though it had been created with her in mind. She loves nothing more than to create strong-willed, female lead characters, who challenge those around them almost as much as they challenge themselves.
Sharon also loves animals of all shapes and sizes. She has owned all the usual suspects one would keep as a pet, and a few more exotic ones thrown in for good measure. She spent her teens working at a tourist farm and animal park, and as a result has handled everything from porcupines and warthogs, to ferrets and hedgehogs. She has been surrogate mom to many orphans including; kittens, lambs and an eagle owl. No matter how hard she tries, animals always seem to steal the limelight in her novels.
She loves to hear from readers and welcomes messages via any of the usual channels.

** I received a free e-copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review **

Two words...Epically Awesome!!

A Cat's Chance in Hell was one of those books so rich in detail and experience that you would swear you spent the last day in a movie rather than reading a book. Sharon Hannaford makes it so effortlessly easy for her readers to join her world.

I don't think I have ever been sucked into a book so hard. In all honesty, the beginning of the book (where you're introduced to all of the characters, the history, various info) was kind of hard to get through for me. It was absolutely necessary though so if you plan on reading this book, push through it. Once Julius's character comes into the story the action kicks in full force and it becomes impossible to put this book down.

The characters were beyond amazing. It would be an insult for me to use phrases like "great characters" or "complex characters". Sharon Hannaford has such a remarkable talent that at some point they stopped being cool characters in a book and they took on a life of their own. It was as if I was lifted out of my living room and deposited into this new world full of vampires (with and without morals), protective werewolves who can slay demons without breaking a sweat but just as easily be my big brother or best friend, magi who could be a second father or the most annoying person on the planet, and kick ass females who cuddle with their cats one minute and kill something the next. It would be very hard for me to pick a favorite character out of the lineup in this book. If I had to, I would probably choose Julius who had far too many good qualities to list or Alexander who was cocky and shifty in the beginning but let you see his softer side the more you got to know him.

Sharon Hannaford was a new to me author when I picked this book up. Not anymore. After reading A Cat's Chance in Hell, I am an insta-fan. I can't wait to start the next book in this awesome series!
