Sharon Wheater

Biography

My name is Sharon and I was born in Derbyshire and spent most of my childhood knee deep in horse poop. I have had horses all my life. My love was to show-jump but I nowadays I just don't have the time.
I have always loved to write ever since I was a child. I loved to write ghost stories and tales of witches so I could disappear off into my own little world. I want to write to please the reader and broaden my own imagination...to which many have already said is crazy, I don't think so, I think I can just create a very good story!
I also love to draw, many years ago I would draw peoples horses for them and other pictures to order, I haven't done much like that for a long time. I do create my own book covers, to which I want to do for others too eventually and maybe look at the publishing side of it and promotions too.
I joined the military and spent several years serving my country and traveling, I have seen most of the world and it really is an amazing place. I loved my job but I had a very nasty accident which was nearly crippled me for life but I battled against it and now I am as normal as everyone else....well, physically anyhow!
Unfortunately I was medically discharged, one of the saddest moments of my life but I went off around Europe with friends for a few months. Once I was back on my feet, I treated myself by celebrating with friends in some of the most beautiful countries in Europe, great fun and experience.
I moved to Chattanooga in Tennessee and lived there around four years and six months in Melbourne in Florida eventually moving back to the UK.
I met my partner, the love of my life, Mark, and we decided to move to sunny Spain, the best move we have ever made.
Now we have a lovely house just over a mile from the ocean and live with our two cats, Luna and Tic, and our dog Bongo where I spend most of my time writing. I love my home and being in it, my poor man is a total widower to writing bless him.
I love photography, socializing, surfing, animals and much more, I will be adding photos to the gallery here on the site which I have taken.
I love to write fantasy novels as I can let my mind run riot, but I do write other genres.
