Sharon Sala realized that she was meant to be an author when she found herself loving to read, hating her job, and constantly daydreaming. Prompted by the deaths of her father and sister, which happened within two and a half months of each other, Sharon made a vow to "not let another day pass without pursuing my dreams."
In 1989 she finished a manuscript and sent it to a publisher. Not only was it the first manuscript Sharon had ever sent, but the very first publisher she sent it to bought it!
Since her first Silhouette book, Annie and the Outlaw, in 1994, Sharon has published seven books for Silhouette Intimate Moments. She also wrote For Her Eyes Only, which was published as a part of Silhouette's 36 Hours miniseries in October 1997.
More recently, Sharon made the jump to MIRA Books with Sweet Baby and Reunion. Sharon has been a four-time RITA Award finalist. She has been given many awards, including the Career Achievement Award from Romantic Times Magazine, and the National Readers’ Choice Award, twice.
Born and raised in Prague, Oklahoma, Sharon still lives there with her two children.
She describes her writing style as "instinctive—I rarely have to sit down and think of a plot or character for a new book. They are always floating around inside my head, waiting to come to life."
