Be Welcome in My House

Sharon Lee at book signing, Children’s Book Cellar, Waterville Maine, October 2009

My name is Sharon Lee;
I’m a writer

I’m best-known as a co-author of the Liaden Universe® novels and stories, totaling as of this writing seventeen novels and a whole bunch of short stories.

Together, Steve Miller and I have also written four additional novels of science fiction and fantasy, and edited an anthology.

Steve and I are jointly the recipients of the 2012 Edward E. Smith Memorial Award for Imaginative Fiction (aka the Skylark Award), presented by the New England Science Fiction Association

On my own byline, I’ve written two mystery novels,  a contemporary fantasy trilogy, and several dozen short stories.

This front page is updated intermittently.  In fact, it’s updated about once a year.  If you want to see what’s going on in my life and my writing life, or to keep up with the cats, you’ll want to bookmark The Blog Without a Name, which is updated several times a week.

At the moment, the writing schedule looks like this; the dates given are delivery dates (which is to say, when each title is to be turned in to the publisher).  All novels will be published by Baen Books:

First of five contracted Liaden Universe® novels (title TBA), September 15, 2014
Second of five, February 15, 2015
Third of five, November 15, 2015
Fourth of five, August 15, 2016
Fifth of five,  May 15, 2017

The publication schedule (aka, when you can expect to find the following titles in stores) for the next while looks like this:
