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, and am finishing up the last book in a contemporary fantasy trilogy for Baen.
This front page is updated intermittently. 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.
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:
