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 has written for several publisher and writes compelling stories for MIRA Books under both the Sharon Sala and her Dinah McCall pseudonym

Born and raised in Prague, Oklahoma, Sharon still lives there, as do her two children and numerous grandchildren.
