Be Welcome in My House

My name is Sharon Lee; I’m a writer

I’m best-known as co-author, with Steve Miller, of the Liaden Universe® novels and short stories.  The twenty-fifth Liaden novel, Salvage Right, was published by Baen Books on July 4, 2023.  By coincidence, Salvage Right is also the 100th Lee-and-Miller collaboration.

Ribbon Dance, the twenty-sixth Liaden novel (and 104th Lee-and-Miller collaboration), will be published by Baen Books on June 4, 2024.

Yeah, been doing this awhile.

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 more frequently.

At the moment, the writing schedule looks like this — NOTE: 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:
