Zoë Sharp was born in Nottinghamshire but spent her formative years living on a catamaran on the northwest coast of England.
After a promising start at a private girls' school, she opted out of mainstream education at the age of twelve. She wrote her first novel when she was fifteen and created her no-nonsense ex-Special Forces turned bodyguard heroine Charlie Fox after receiving death-threat letters in the course of her work as a photojournalist.
Sharp’s short stories have been used in school text books and turned into short films, and the Charlie Fox series has been optioned for TV.
Her work has been nominated for the Edgar, Anthony, Barry, Benjamin Franklin, and Macavity Awards in the United States, as well as the CWA Short Story Dagger in the UK.
A keen library supporter and public speaker, she blogs regularly on the acclaimed group website www.Murderati.com, and on www.hardboiledcollective.blogspot.co.uk. She also witters on Twitter (@AuthorZoeSharp) and fools about on www.Facebook.com (ZoeSharpAuthor).
Zoë currently lives in the English Lake District. Her hobbies are sailing, fast cars (and faster motorbikes), target shooting, travel, films, photography, music, occasional construction projects and reading just about anything she can get her hands on.

Brilliant ! The writing and the characters are great, very detailed without being boring, the story is breathtaking and you cannot put it down. Delighted to have discovered a wonderful writer, and a great character. Lee Child's preface sounds 100% true. Will continue reading Zoe Sharp's books.
