Emma Lee Parkinson's life appears to be perfect. She's young and beautiful and lives in an elegant high-rise condominium with her rich, handsome husband. Her closet is full of designer clothes, shoes, and purses. Dining at elegant restaurants, attending cocktail parties or upscale gala events are typical nights out on the town for her. Luxurious vacations are taken at least twice a year. This life of leisure allows Emma to pursue personal interests as well. She loves shopping for antiques, strolling through art galleries, museums, and furthering her own artistic skills with painting classes. Who could ask for more?
But appearances can be deceiving. Emma hates her life. With a passion.
Intimidated by a deep, dark secret, she lives in a constant state of dread. Battered, abused, and even threatened with death, she's often on the edge of panic. Paralyzed by fear, she's certain there's no way out.
Until the day she attempts to hang her latest find - a painting so enchanting that she buys it on a whim.
Little does she know...
this painting will change her life forever.

About the Author

Sharon Ricklin wrote her first contemporary romance novel while homeschooling her youngest son. After several long distance moves and eventually becoming an empty nester, it was finally time to get busy editing that book. That was in 2006. All was going well - until she had the most vivid dream she'd ever had in her life. This dream inspired the birth of the Ravenswynd Series, and Sharon started writing in a new genre: Paranormal Romance. Or as she likes to call it - Romance with a Twist.
After publishing the 4-book series her first time-travel romance was published. (River of Time)
And...after spending most of 2014 engrossed in extensive rewriting, she finally got that contemporary romance published in February 2015! (Song of Memory)
Sharon is a member of Romance Writers of America (RWA), Wisconsin Romance Writers (WisRa), the author of two blogs, and somewhat addicted to social networking.
Now living in a small town in central Wisconsin, she is working on another book, which is currently leaning towards being a mystery - but may actually turn into another time-travel novel! (It's still a mystery to her)

Note from the Author: The inspiration for Garden of Time began with a beautiful painting. I found it at a resale shop a few years ago, and similar to Emma in the story, I was in the midst of a very dark time in my life. The picture emanated such a peaceful scene - immediately sparking my imagination, and the premise of the story came to me before I left the store. (Yes, I bought it.) I've included a black & white copy of the painting in the back of the book, and if you'd like to see it in color, it's for sale on e-bay. However, if you want the name of the artist and the title of the painting, you'll have to read my book! I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
