(4) Sharon Donovan – Author of 7 Books – Romantic
Suspense, Inspirationals, and Psychological Thrillers
Sharon Donovan is the author of 7 books. Her work includes: Inspiration, Romantic Suspense and Psychological thrillers. Sharon also has written a narrative non-fiction book about the progression of blindness related to diabetes. This book is especially significant because Sharon’s writing career began 10 years ago after losing her vision to a long battle with diabetic retinopathy.
Prior to the loss of her vision, she was a legal secretary for the Court of Common Pleas where she prepared cases for judges in Domestic Relations. Painting was her passion. When she could no longer paint, she began attending creative writing classes and memoir workshops. After a long and winding road, a new dream emerged.
Today, instead of painting her pictures on canvas, Sharon paints her pictures with words. Sharon writes stories of inspiration and suspense. She is a published author with The Wild Rose Press, White Rose Publishing, Whimsical Publications and Chicken Soup for the Soul.
In April of 2012, Sharon passed away. I am grateful for having the opportunity to speak with her. She was a remarkable and inspiring woman that accomplished so much despite the challenges she faced. I am certain that all who knew her felt blessed to have had the opportunity.
