Sharon Hannaford


South Africa

Shaaron Hannaford has been calling herself a writer since she was 8 yrs old. she was born and raised in South Africa, Sharon moved to New Zealand in 2008 with her husband and son, and in 2013 welcomed a baby daughter into my little world. Sharon has had jobs in everything from banking to farming over the years, but in 2010 was finally able to fulfil her life-long ambition of being an almost full-time writer of Urban Fantasy (housewife, mother and cat slave are some of my other job titles). She is an avid reader of epic fantasy, paranormal romance and urban fantasy as well as a passionate animal person. Her  life is always filled with animals of all shapes and sizes. She has owned cats, dogs, mice, rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, horses, miniature horses, pigs, cows and sheep. Sharon has worked on farms and petting zoos and have handled everything from porcupines and warthogs, to ferrets and hedgehogs. She has hand-raised kittens, lambs and an eagle owl. If Sharon ever give up writing she would think about  studying animal behavior or start her own menagerie.
