Be Welcome in My House

Sharon Lee, photo by Steve MillerMy name is Sharon Lee;
I’m a writer

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

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

On my own byline, I’ve written two mystery novels (Barnburner and Gunshy),  a contemporary fantasy trilogy (Carousel Tides, Carousel Sun, Carousel Seas), and several dozen short stories.

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

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.
