Jasper, the Amazon parrot, is no ordinary bird. He lives within the rainforest, whose secrets he’s eager to explore. He loves his life, his home, and his family—grateful for the blessings he’s discovered. He's in charge of his younger brother, Willie, a responsibility Jasper takes very seriously.

Learning how to fly, he learns to appreciate the world around him. When he meets a spider monkey with a penchant for food and a laid back attitude named Charlie, he realizes he’s in for an adventure he never thought possible.

Exploring the boundaries of the forest, Jasper soon understands that there is more to the world around him. Most especially the strange new creatures that have come to live there. Are they safe the young parrot doesn't know. With Willie and Charlie by his side he will soon find out.

Sharon is a native of New England, raised in Northern Maine. She lives in North Carolina with her husband and son. She is owned by a flock of eight birds.

Sharon has a B.S. Degree in Chemistry. Writing keeps her busy. She tends to lose all track of time. The world could be coming to an end, and Sharon would be oblivious to it. When this author is writing, she envisions the scenes in her head. She tries to imagine the reality of what is written down on paper. The different options, scenes and problems will be listed down on the side in case she can use them later.

Sharon tends to write by long hand—the flow works better for her this way. The authors you would see in her bookshelves would be Stephen King, Agatha Christie, Bentley Little, and James Patterson.

She loves to read, take pictures, walk, exercise, go to the movies, and listen to music. Sharon is a budding bird watcher, and knits on the side. She is a huge sports fan which includes baseball, basketball, hockey, and football.

Two of her short stories were published in the anthology, Cassandra's Roadhouse. Jasper, Amazon Parrot: A Rainforest Adventure, was released on September 7, 2013, by Fountain Blue Publishing. In December of 2013 Sharon along with members of her writing group, The Wonder Chicks, released an anthology called Dragons in the Attic.
