Sharon will reveal where her story ideas originate and how she develops them with her characters and plots in Beyond the Tripping Point (Blue Denim Press, 2012), Beyond Blood (Blue Denim Press, 2014) and Beyond Faith (October 2017).

Dana Bowman is available to do short and long skits about her life between the Beyond books covers. She is noted for dissing Sharon – when she can get away with it. Dana has recently teamed up with George Walton and other characters created by literary author Shane Joseph (Crossing Limbo, Morning Rain Publishing, 2017; In the Shadow of the Conquistador, Blue Denim Press, 2015) in a mad mix of reality and fiction.
