About the Author

Sharon Foley's poems have received recognition and awards from the Wisconsin Fellowship of Poets, the Wisconsin Regional Writer's Association as well as the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts and Letters' literary magazine. Her poems have appeared in numerous journals, including The Aurorean, Common Ground Review, White Pelican Review, Bellowing Ark and Plainsongs as well as the anthology, Collecting Life: Poets on Objects known and Imagined. This is her first collection of poems.

She lives in Whitefish Bay Wisconsin with her husband, children and ferocious five-pound morkie, Dash. When not writing, she enjoys reading, long walks, crafting and collecting sea glass along the shores of Lake Michigan.

Board certified in Internal Medicine and Dermatology, daughter of an Oncologist, and with personal experience with illness, Sharon has been circling the themes of sickness and mortality in her writing for some time. Her journey has given her a unique perspective on the 'endurance' that life requires, regardless of outcome.
