Everyone needs a hero.
But have you ever considered that YOU are the hero of your own story?
It took me YEARS to believe this. I had to suffer multiple losses and fall short of every dream I wanted before I fell flat on my face. When I looked up, He stood over me, the Hero of the Ages, and said, “I have gifted you to tell stories. Will you write them now?”
(No, not a real encounter. I didn’t see a vision or hear a voice, but I did have a very real encounter.)
It only took losing my grandmother who invested time and money in helping me learn to write. It only took a terminal diagnosis for my mother who pushed me to be the best. That’s when I was face-down and I realized only I could make my dreams come true.
That’s what every one of us faces. And that’s the same sort of reality each of my sheroes and heroes comes face-to-face with in the stories I write.
I write books.
I’ll let the reviewers of my books do the talking:
“I am almost speechless after reading this book. Even though I know this is a fictionalized account of Mary, the mother of Jesus, it still really made me stop and think more about her as a mother. Most people, including myself, have put Mary on a pedestal as if she was perfect just because she was the mother of Jesus. This book made me realize that she was still an imperfect human being used by a mighty God to bring forth His promise of a Messiah.” – Lisa – 5-star review on Amazon
“Sharon Hughson is a new to me author but one I want to follow. She has taken a tough subject. child abuse and neglect, and made a love story with a believable happy ending.” MHarris, 5-star review on Amazons
“The characters were great. They went through the gamut of emotions and were such strong characters just by being gentle & loving. I loved how much emotion & quirkiness Sharon Hughson brought into this book. “ E. Eblin, 5-star review on Amazon

Here’s a bit about Sharon for the coaching clients. Sharon says:
I’ve been writing since I was in third grade, the year a green spiral notebook captured the words of my first “book.” In the decades since, I’ve taken multiple writing classes, attended writing conferences, joined critique groups, gained and lost publishing contracts for romance and fantasy, and struggled alone until finally cultivating an intimate network of writers who share the writing dream.
In short, I’ve taken the leap across the gulf between aspiring and published author.
Many times along the way, I wished a professional author would help me. If only I had found one — and I reached out to quite a few — I know my journey wouldn’t have been this uphill, winding road.
I’m a teacher without pupils. When I talk writing, it brings great joy, and when I help others brainstorm their way to an aha moment, it’s a thrill. I’m looking for those happy sparks when I sit down with you — the next writer I’ll help.
No matter where you are in your writing journey, I’ve been there. I can help you:
- navigate the confusing map of options
- rework your story to make it stronger
- refine your writing process
- focus on getting words on the page
I understand what it’s like to stumble through the first draft. When it comes to revisions, I’ve learned the delicate balance between making the story better and removing its creative magic. A professional author must be a relentless self-editor, but there comes a point when the red pen needs to stop, and the manuscript needs to ship.
