Meet the Author

Sharon will likely tell anyone who asks that her life is so ordinary it could be used as a commercial for sleep aids.

She always knew she wanted to be a writer from the time she was in second grade and discovered those sentences that had to be written to go with the spelling words could be turned into stories. Magic! She remembers vividly getting that first library card, and from then until now she's always read as much as she could. All that reading, in turn, fueled her passion for writing. Though the path to becoming published was a longer one than she'd ever anticipated, she never gave up on her dream to be a published author.

After she graduated from college, she became a technical writer, and for many years wrote software documentation for computer systems. User's guides and system analysis weren't quite what she had in mind, though, and she always wrote fiction on the side. During the years she kept polishing her stories and submitting them for publication, while she and her husband raised two daughters who are now grown. One is a ballet instructor and the other is a software developer.

Sharon likes to garden, but considers herself an amateur compared to her parents, whose acre yard is a showpiece. Her friends will tell you she has a gardening analogy for just about any life situation--some people compare life to football, Sharon maintains it's like a garden. Her favorite part of her yard is a water garden complete with water lilies and goldfish.

She's been married to her best friend for more years than she admits to being old. When she's asked about that, she professes to be lucky--that she got it right the first time and that she can't imagine living her life with anyone else. But then she'll add that marriage is like a garden. It has to be tended and nurtured regularly; you have to focus on the blossoms, recognize and appreciate the cycles of the seasons, and get rid of the weeds so there's room for the good stuff to grow.

Her constant companions are a cat and two dogs, an aging Lhasa apso that she's had for many years and a shih tzu rescued from a puppy mill. She says training the shih tzu has been one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences she's ever had. "He had never been around people, except in a negative way," she says. "So, he was very timid at first, and we'd had him over a month before he wagged his tail for the first time--that was a red-letter day."

Sharon is part of a critique group that has been together for nearly 10 years and says its members have become her closest friends. "Publication," she says, "might never have come without their support and encouragement."

Once asked what her core belief is, she answered that there are two. First, love conquers all. Second, dreams do come trueÂ…when you work diligently toward their achievement.

Sharon loves to hear from her readers.

    Fabulous Read

    I love books with continuing characters. And, I've been waiting to read about Jack and Dahlia since last year when Too Close for Comfort came out. Jack is Ian's best friend from that book, and Dahlia is Rosie's little sister. I loved Too Close for Comfort, but Friend, Lover, Protector is even better. If you like danger, lots and lots of sexual tension, a heroine who is anything but a wimp, and a gorgeous dangerous man, you're going to love this book just as much as I did. Jack is strong when he needs to be, and so tender when Dahlia needs it. Wow! One question is all I have. Is Lily going to have her story? I sure hope so.

    This book has a little of everything...

    This book has a little of everything. Romance, mayhem, and non-stop action. This talented author makes you feel as if you are there chasing Thunderstorms with Dahlia and Jack, right down to the rumble in the Colorado skies. If you like romance with a bit of suspense. This book is fun romp.

    Romance and Adventure

    WOW. Friend, Lover, Protector a Silhouette Intimate Moments (May) by Sharon Mignerey is a great, fast read! ROMANCE and ADVENTURE =:o Dr. Dahlia Jensen is a storm-chasing prof studying lightning whose sister is in protective custody to testify against a mob boss. Jack Trahern (yum) is Dahlia's Army Ranger bodyguard (who hates storms). From playing chicken with a train to outrun bad guys to following a trail of roses, the story is captivating with strong, believable characters, tightly woven plot and winding sexual tension. My favorite scene was when the hero decides to show his discipline by bathing the heroine.....WHEW!

    Wow!! What a wonderful read!!

    FRIEND, LOVER, PROTECTOR is a wonderful, exciting book. It is a great follow up to Sharon Mignerey's last book, TOO CLOSE FOR COMFORT. The sexual tension between Jack and Dahlia is so thick you can cut it with a knife and the bathing scene, HOT! HOT! HOT! Jack is the perfect hero, protective, sexy and he can cook! What more could I want? This book robbed me of my sleep because I couldn't put it down. That makes it a five star read and definitely goes on my keeper shelf.

    A Fast-Paced, Emotional-Packed Read

    This book begins suspenseful and holds that suspense for the entire book. The characters are believable. I felt their heartache and joy. (I'd really like to know where I find a Jack Trahern.) The plot is tightly woven. The tension between Jack and Dahlia is heavy. Sometimes I had to stop reading, just to take a breath and calm down. If you like feeling STRONG emotions when you read, this is the book for you. I can hardly wait for the other sister's story. When will that come out?
