About Sharon K. Connell
First of all, did you know that detective fiction author Dashiell Hammett started out as a private detective; his first case was to track down a stolen Ferris wheel.
Now I was never a detective, although when I worked for Wells Fargo Guard Services, years ago, I occasionally helped out a detective in our company when he needed a female voice. Maybe that’s why I love the genre Christian Romance Suspense. But when it comes to scenes in my stories, I go to those in law enforcement to verify my details. Just thought you’d like to know that about me.
I was born in Wisconsin, grew up and schooled in Illinois through College. In order to attend the Pensacola Bible Institute, I moved to Florida and lived there until retiring in Texas. Today I enjoy every minute of living as a Texan and writing.
There are many things I enjoy doing today, things I’ve always wanted to have the time to do. Some of these include at least three to four hours writing stories about people who discover (as I have) that God will only allow those things into your life that will help you grow and/or increase your faith. I also enjoy birding, gardening, painting (when taking a break from writing) and singing.
Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14
At the age of twelve years old, I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior. I have never been disappointed that I did. He has been with me throughout all my trials and tribulations, most of which I brought on myself. Not once, have I ever felt He deserted me or does not love me.
Humans, for the most part, have a way of convincing themselves that what they want is what God wants. Sometimes that’s true…but most often we have our own desires in mind and not our Lord’s.
Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. James 4:3
Yet sometimes God lets us have our own way even when it’s not His Will. This is what gets us into trouble. I speak from experience. Yet, the Lord has blessed me beyond measure and always forgives me when I ask. I’ve learned He will never forsake me.
Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. Hebrews 13:5
In my writing, I’ve tried to bring out these truths. I hope you’ll enjoy all I’ve written, and it will be a blessing to you.
