Sharon Buchbinder

Sharon Buchbinder got into a lot of trouble for when she was a child for "making things up." After working in health care delivery for years, she became are searcher, then an academic. But that itch to write kept beckoning her to "come on back" to writing fiction. Since romance has over a dozen sub-genres, she was able to turn her fascination with horror and mystery into paranormal romance and romantic suspense. When not writing she can be found reading, fishing, working out, golfing or enjoying a good meal and laughter with friends and family.
