BEHIND THE PEN
Sharon Allgood was born in Bridgetown, Barbados. She moved to the United States with her mother at age twelve. Sharon started writing children's stories in 2012, after her children requested additional information of the previous night’s made-up, bedtime story. In order to keep up with the demand and for her memory's sake, Sharon started writing down her stories in preparation for the next night. Realizing she enjoyed the stories as much as her children, she researched and found the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators and attended her first conference that same year. She fell in love with the connectivity of the group and the varied backgrounds of her fellow writers.
Sharon published her first book titled, Children's Questions: Stories of Imagination Volume I in June 2013 with Amazon and is currently working on three additional fiction books—Volume II of her published book; a middle grade, sci-fi with her daughter; and a young adult, romance, sci-fi book.
Sharon lives happily in the Washington, DC area with her loving husband, two wonderful children, and silly dog.
