~ a medley of ponderings as we walk through this life together... hosted by Sharon McAnear, author of the Jemma Series and the Stars in My Crown trilogy. Psalm 19:14 ~ "Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable
in thy sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer."

Sharon McAnear grew up in the Texas Panhandle at a time when small towns and farms still thrived, as did the comforting presence of extended families. Her grandparents were a constant source of joy and spiritual inspiration to her. They, like many others of that period, learned to appreciate the humor and irony in life, and those particular traits are given high regard in her writing.
In addition to writing, Sharon is a reader, a hiker, and a frequent visitor to Britain. She confesses to lovingly wallpapering her family's downstairs bathroom with 243 Far Side cartoons one snowy weekend in the late nineties. Gary Larson, however, had nothing at all to do with the cover photos for her novels. They are the author's own work.
Sharon McAnear lives in Colorado with her periodically dramatic family. She is currently plotting her next novel, and perhaps sneaking added inspiration from wallpaper.
