Sharon S. Hartley

Sharon lives in St. Petersburg, Florida with her soulmate Max, a Jack Russell Terrorist named Rocket, and hundreds of orchids. She's a graduate of the University of Florida and received an MFA in Creative Writing from Florida International University.

Sharon loves telling stories with an element of suspense, especially about law enforcement officers and the dangerous people that inhabit their world. Her previous career as a court reporter provided a multitude of "what-ifs" that she uses in her books.

Sharon is also a yoga teacher and has practiced this ancient art since 1985. She urges her students to let go of any competitive mind set, to accept and love their bodies just as they are. Yoga was created to stop the endless turnings of our minds in order to find tranquility and peace.

She loves orchids! Look on the photo page for images of some of her favorite flowers.
