Author Biography

Sharon Ricklin wrote her first contemporary romance novel while homeschooling her youngest son. After several long distance moves and eventually becoming an empty nester, it was finally time to get busy editing that book. That was in 2006. All was going well - until she had the most vivid dream she’d ever had in her life. This dream inspired the birth of the Ravenswynd Series, and Sharon started writing in a new genre: Paranormal Romance. Or as she likes to call it - Romance with a Twist. The entire series was published in 2013.

After spending most of 2014 engrossed in extensive rewriting, she finally got that contemporary romance published in February 2015! (Song of Memory) Her next two publications includeRiver of Time (2013) and Garden of Time (2015), both time-travel romance novels, both stand-alone novels.

Sharon is a member of Romance Writers of America (RWA), Wisconsin Romance Writers (WisRWA), the author of two blogs, and somewhat addicted to social networking.
Now living in Waukesha, Wisconsin, her current work in progress is a futuristic time travel; aliens, androids and all.
