Sharon (Daniell) Meyer was born and raised on Long Island, NY where she competed in State, Northeast Regional and National roller skate dance, and won 138 trophies, medals. In her early teen years, Sharon became the youngest dance skater to receive the prestigeous Gold Medal for proficiency in roller skate dancing.
After graduation from Sewanhaka High School, Sharon attended Brownes Business School, and pursued a career as a legal secretary.
In 1977 she moved to Waco, Texas where she raised her two sons and began a full-time career in residential real estate sales. In 1986 Sharon was voted "REALTOR of the Year" by Waco Board of REALTORS, and became President of the Waco Board of REALTORS in 1989.
In 1994 Sharon relocated to New York City and married Edward Meyer. Upon his retirement in 1998, Edward and Sharon moved to Texas where they now reside in San Antonio.
Sharon and her husband each have two children and together share nine grandchildren and several grand-dogs.
When a little mouse ran from a fireplace on a cold winter night, startling two of the author's young grandchildren, they asked her to tell them a bedtime story about the mouse that invaded their home. They were fascinated and wanted another story about the mouse... and another... and another. Thus came the creation of more than twenty-five stories entitled “The Adventures of Maurice DeMouse.”
When not writing stories for her grandchildren, Sharon enjoys spending time with her nine grandchildren that span from Texas to Pennsylvania, traveling with her husband, writing her memoirs, researching her family’s history, and gardening - when Texas weather permits.
"The Four-Legged Rock started giggling and laughing so hard that it rolled over on its back. Then it started rocking from side to side. 'Oh no!' said the Four-Legged Rock. 'I did it again! I'm stuck! Can you please help me turn over on my tummy?'...'What ARE you?' asked Maurice as he cleaned off his whiskers."

***** Review by Joyce Calo, Nov. 07, 2012 -
What a creative book. I am a grandma myself and I can definately see children enjoying this tale. I, myself, found it captivating. I could actually "see" the plot unfold. The pictures throughout were a plus. Great book for bonding time with your little one.

They have big long pointy ears that stick up, whiskers under a button-nose that's always twitching, and a funny kind of tail - not like our beautiful, skinny mouse tail. The bunny's tail looks like a big piece of cotton," giggled Maurice. "And they don't crawl, they HOP all over the place." Introductory story for Bobby the Bunny
