The World and Then Some

There on the road stood a child. Cora knew her at once. She had her father’s green eyes and her mother’s gorgeous face. Scuffing lines in the dust with the toe of her shoe, the little girl looked up at her. “Ma’am,” she said, “I’m here.”

Sharon makes me feel like I’m a member of the family, so when the joys of life give way to the pain, I never feel alone.”

Mike Konz, Enterprise Editor

Sharon writes in the authentic voice of one who knows where people live their lives, the snapshots of joy and the quieter moments to reflect on what it all means. Her writing is full of knowing observations, but beneath it all is a generous and open heart that hears the stories of others. Life is made of moments—a child’s party, a phone call with bad news, a visit with an old friend—and she captures their meaning framed with grace, grit, and hope.
