Meet Sharon Ward


My background

Berry, Berry Dead  is a cozy mystery, featuring consultant Carrie Harding. Writing a novel has been a dream of mine since the third grade, and I’m excited to share it with you.   


My writing roots

I’m a cozy mystery book writer.My first novel is called Berry, Berry Dead. 

I worked in the software industry for a long time and over the years I wrote a lot of trade press articles and marketing collateral, but I yearned to write a novel. I started my career in manufacturing and supply chain operations. I was even featured in Fortune magazine at one time.

I also do freelance writing, content creation and marketing strategy consulting. But my real passion has always been writing fiction. 


My style

I'm a little bit goofy, so there's a lot of humor in my book.

By the way, this is a picture of my dog, Penny. She was a wire-haired miniature dachshund. She passed away recently, and I miss her every day. But the good news--there's also a wire-haired miniature dachshund named Penny in Berry, Berry Dead. Although they look a lot alike, she's not the same dog.
