A former English Literature academic, having studied at London and Cambridge, she possesses fifteen years of teaching experience, including extensive knowledge of mentoring writers through all stages of the writing and submission process.
Sharon’s first novel, Welcome to Sharonville, was published last year by Unthank Books and was longlisted for The Guardian First Book Award.
She edits fiction though her range is broad, spanning from literary fiction through women’s commercial to crime and sci-fi. She has also worked with writers on non-fiction and academic book proposals, as well as editing poetry collections since she was previously Young Poet of the Year. Having worked with authors and publishers from across the globe, Sharon is also conversant with the nuances of American and Australian English and aware of the differences relating to international book markets.
