All About Sharon

Sharon Lynn Fisher writes romantic sci-fi/fantasy and battles writerly angst with baked goods, Irish tea, and champagne. Her debut novel GHOST PLANET (Tor/Macmillan) was a 2013 RWA RITA finalist and a two-time RWA Golden Heart finalist. Tor will release her second novel, THE OPHELIA PROPHECY, in March 2014. A third novel, ECHO 8 (2011 Golden Heart finalist and FF&P On the Far Side winner), will follow later that year.

Sharon's first accomplishment as a writer came at the age of 10, when she received an honorable mention for her story "Ice Age Adventure" from Cricket Magazine. Sharon is represented by Robin Rue of Writers House.
