My name is Charlene but I go by the pen name Sharlay...if you want to know why then visit the 'about me' page on my site (www.sharlayauthor.com). I didn't always know that I wanted to write but the day that I discovered it changed my life completely. It's like finding, and falling in love with the perfect person...you can't describe it in words...others just have to experience it. I love God, I believe that every skill and talent that I have is because of him. He has blessed me so much on my journey and I am forever grateful. I love writing but the most important part of the writing for me...is to stay true to the person that I am, write stories from the heart and never forget the readers...without readers my writing career wouldn't even exist! I published my first book in November 2012 which was the most amazing feeling ever. I pray that I can be an inspiration to other writers and make such a phenomenal difference in the writing industry that I can create something new and wonderful for other aspiring authors.

If I could give other writers any advice I would say...never write to please people, write the story that comes from the heart. When you write from the heart, readers will connect because the heart never lies...xx
