Sheron McCartha


I am a Northwest writer now living in Portland, Oregon who loves to read science fiction thanks to my father's influence. After I graduated from the University of Florida with a Master's degree in Education with emphasis on English, speech and journalism, I taught creative writing and English literature at Bradford High School. I got married, had a wonderful daughter and day jobs of teacher, banker, stock broker, artist and manager of an art gallery.

One night during a long, boring, ride home from a vacation weekend, I began to construct a story based on a passing name on a billboard that struck my fancy. Traveling at sixty miles per hour, a one second glance turned into years of writing about the Alysian Universe. No wonder I write about time and its effect.

From that one name, Penryn, generations of intriguing characters and exotic places sprung forth. I fell in love with the Alysian Universe and hope that you will too. Try reading a few stories and see if, you too, will find a world that entertains and delights you.
