More About the Author

Sharon Arthur Moore lives in the desert Southwest with her husband ("a hunk") and yellow lab. Their children live far away in cities she likes to visit. They don't come home often enough, but that is probably due to them being gainfully employed.

She enjoys travel, reading, word games, and all manner of company. She fancies herself a cook, but not a chef, and loves feeding family and friends original recipes that sometimes turn out to be quite tasty. She is addicted to cookbook reading and TV cooking shows.

Sharon is thrilled to have three fiction books in print with more to come. She writes in a wide range of genre, thus never really mastering any one of them. You can find her mysteries under Sharon Arthur Moore, her romances under Angelica French, and some unpubbed-as-yet paranormal fiction under River Glynn.

She takes writing classes on-line and in real life, and buys books on writing like she is the sole support of the writing education community. As a "frequent buyer" of books at, she is negotiating with them for freebies.

A teacher at heart, she "transitioned" ("retired" is such an old person word) after 39 years as an educator to full-time writing. She is in various writing critique groups and loves sharing with others what she is learning.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book was delivered to me promptly, however a large hole had been cut out from the front cover with scissors. The hole was then hidden by a sticker on the outside and inside of the book.
