Sharon Ann Rowland (Street Articles Author)

Sharon Ann Rowland was born in Southampton, England, and immigrated to Australia with her family in 1982. She found the transition between the two countries overwhelming and found herself turning to literature and writing to escape the harsh realities of adjusting to a new country and its people.

Sharon has been dreaming about the heroine of her books, Samantha Everett, as well as the other characters since she was thirteen years old, the same time she made her transition to Australia. She has kept a series of dream journals by her bed to record all of her Crystal Channelers activities, adventures, physical attributes and mental musings.

Sharon had a successful career within the IT industry as a Business/Process Analyst and Training Manager which spanned two decades, working for a number of Australia’s top 500 companies. In 2008, when her health prompted her to take time out from consulting, she decided it was time to stop talking about writing her novels and to actually do it.

Three years on, Sharon is still joyfully unemployed, with three completed novels to her name, all reflecting her love of her adopted country, Australia.

She lives with her husband, two daughters, and two cats (Chester and Tigga) in Brisbane, Queensland.
