Sharon’s Journey

I have loved reading, words, and language for as long as I can remember. Even in my professional career I embraced writing speeches and creating manuals as a way of using my words to the fullest. In 2005 when my husband and I moved to Virginia, a window of opportunity opened for me. I resigned my position as chief operating officer with an information technology (IT) staffing company and I started writing my first novel.  

As someone blessed to have lived in Europe and traveled the world, I can tell you that my well of quirky life observations overflows, providing much fodder for storytelling.  When I add to the mix, my hilarious husband, adorable stepchildren, and the rest of my family, the goofy stories never end. As grateful as I am to all of them for their love and friendship, I’m especially grateful to my Heavenly Father for giving me this life and guiding me on my journey.

  1. Hi Sharon;

    You’re a golfer? So am I. Cannot wait to hit the fareways.

    I’m going to link your blog with mine right now…I know what I said, but hey…it just feels right to do it now.

    My blog:
    Title: *Conquer All Obstacles*
    Other tags: Marketing and Promotional Techniques.

    God bless;

  2. Hi Sharon:

    You are a very enjoyable writer and your stories are varied and funny–however, serious when needed.

    I was delighted to see you and finally, meet your husband at church last month.

    Not to put a damper on your writing parade but I have lost interest in writing at this time in my life. The most I can muster up is journaling. I found the latter very therapeutic. I do express my written thoughts inwardly, outwardly and directly to the Lord and myself.

    There are so many books, stories, spoken and unspoken words, etc. inside of me but I have no interest in writing about them at this time.

    Thank you for the “virtual writers’ conference” information. If there is anything you could share with me afterwards, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Keep the ink running,


  3. Diane, I can totally understand the place you’re in right now. As you well know, there’s a time and a season for everything. Be blessed, and know that He who is faithful will lead you, and guide you as you journey through life.

  4. Hey, fellow golfer! I hope we have a chance to play a round of golf one day. Just think, pretty soon the weather will be nice enough for us golfers to hit the fareways and enjoy lush green courses. 🙂 I can’t wait!

    Thank you so much for linking to my blog. Your link is on mine as well, and I look forward to having you on as a guest real soon. Blessings…

  6. Melissa, it was so wonderful meeting you on Saturday. I’m so bummed that we didn’t get a chance to really talk, but I know we’ll have plenty of opportunity next year. Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment that blessed me beyond words.

  7. HI Sharon,
    I just found your blog through Robin Shope. I live in the D.C area and would love to know more about your Journey as you mentioned above. Take care. Keep writing!

  8. Hi Jessica,
    I’m so glad you found my blog through Robin. She’s such an amazing and inspiring lady and it’s a privilege to have her as my guest today. I’ll send you an email so we can talk offline about our respective writing journeys.


  9. I look forward to reading your published novel one day, Sharon! God has certainly given you much to write about.

  10. Mary, thank you so much for encouraging me. You are such a blessing and I’m so glad the Lord allowed us to me each other at the ACFW conference.

  12. Hi Rahul,

    Thank you for visiting my blog. My journey has been a blessing indeed. I’m still a long way from being published, but in the meantime I’m enjoying the experience.
