She is best recognized as a co-author (with Steve Miller) of Liaden Universe novels and stories, totaling eighteen novels and a wide range of short stories. Sharon Lee is also the co-writer other works, and independently the writer of two anonymous novels. Sharon Lee was born on September 11, 1952 in Maryland, United States in a small county known as Baltimore. Lee graduated from the Parkville Senior High School (PSHS) in the year 1970, and attended the University of Maryland during the late 1970s while working as an administrative assistant to the dean of the school of social work and community planning at UMAB professional schools in downtown Baltimore.

In her entire life, Sharon Lee has been working as a secretary in different places, as well as a call-in talk hostess, publicity copywriter, night-side news copy editor, photographer, freelance reporter, deliverer of tractor trailers and book reviewer. Beginning in 1997, Lee served three years as an executive director of science fiction and fantasy writers of America, and was afterwards elected as the vice president, then as the president of that institute. Sharon Lee’s first proficient fiction publication was known as “A Matter of Ceremony,” amazing stories, 1980. Moreover, she has written two Maine base anonymous novels- Gunshy and Barnburner, in addition to her assistance to Liaden universe. The two were published by the SRM Publisher Limited together with many short stories.

Sharon Lee was married to Steve Miller in 1980. In the year 1988, the two couples relocated to Central Maine, and currently live in Winslow. Together, Sharon and Steve Miller have written four extra novels of fantasy and science fiction, and also edited an anthology as well. The two are jointly the receivers of 2012 Edward E. Smith memorial award for imaginative fiction. It is also known as the Skylark Award and was presented by the New England science fiction Association. On her own byline, Sharon Lee’s two mystery novels- Barnburner and Gunshy, together with her contemporary fantasy trilogy-Carousel Tides, Carousel Sun and Carousel Seas are read worldwide. She has been married to her husband for almost half her lifetime and is a friend to cats. Moreover, Lee is a member of (NCA)-National Carousel Association, and also an investment scheme of an incredible number of stuffed animals.

Even though she was born in the year of the dragon, Lee is a shy person. She resides in Maine since she likes it there. She likes Maine so much that she has five novels written all by herself set in Maine. They include: mysteries Gunshy and Barnburner, and modern fantasies Carousel Tides (2010), Carousel Seas (2015) and Carousel Sun (2014). With the abovementioned husband, Steve Miller, Lee has written about seventeen novels of fantasy and Science fiction-many of them set in Liaden Universe -and several short stories. Sharon has regularly been less adventurous, a reporter, an advertising copywriter, book reviewer, photographer, and a secretary. Before he settled down to the quiet and stable life of fantasy and science fiction writer, Steve was a rock-band reviewer, a traveling poet, reporter, and an editor of community newspapers.

Local Custom (2000) is Sharon Lee’s first novel that’s chronologically in Liaden series, and the fourth work of fiction published. The tribe’s member, Er Thom Yos’galan is caught in an emotional and ethical bind: Liaden law obliges him to offer kids to the tribe, yet he is obsessed with one Terran lady that he had met a number of years on Proziski. After a rapid affair, the two parted, with the tribe’s member, Er Thom returning to his vessel and trade path. Now that the clan has demanded him to give away his kid, Er Thom finds himself powerless of becoming fascinated with any other lady. In extreme anxiety, he borrows a vessel from his brother and tracks Anne Davis at the University. Their affair resumes without more ado, as if no point in time had passed, but afterwards Anne Davis introduces him to their son, Shan Yos’galan. All of a sudden, their love event runs afoul of the dissimilarity in their customs. To the man, Er Thom, the boy’s a kid of the Korval clan and Yos’Galen line and must be offered to delm & thodelm to be acknowledged into their clan. Davis does not see it quite this way, with Er Thom being only a sperm donor. Anne refuses his presentation of the treaty marriage considering it as merely another momentary fling.

This novel has fundamentals of comedy of etiquette, with misunderstanding taking place in both parties and with bitter feelings stirring the mix up. Nonetheless, such communication failure still occurs in every day life even among close acquaintances and still between dissimilar cultures on this globe. Even so, the two lovers struggle very hard in opposition to the misconception and without restraint open up to embarrassment with the spirit of dependence, but are momentarily derailed by thodelm. This narrative is a humorous demonstration that manners are not widespread. Correct conduct’s relative to one’s or another person’s culture, depending upon the customs, background, folkways and the customs, yet individuals often presuppose that their own, confined manners apply in every condition and place. This work of fiction furthermore points out the manners existing only to aid interpersonal associations and that stupid insistence on inflexible formalism can demolish rather than take care of such relationships. In various respects, this story summarizes the thesis of the entire series: society grows only when it continues to spread and expand its horizons. Anne and Er Thom add fresh life to a self-satisfied and hardened Liaden customs. Indeed a humor, but an epiphany as well.

Maine-based authors Steve Miller and Sharon Lee teamed up in the late 1980s to bring the story of Kinzel to the world, an incompetent wizard who loves cats and has thirst for justice, together with staff of true power as well. Since then, the two have written many short stories, and more than twenty novels, most set in Liaden Universe. Their latest shared novel is the Trade Secret from Baen. Moreover, their novel-Dragon in Exile is going to be published in June 2015. Both Lee and Steve credit their newspaper experiences which taught them the finer points of teamwork. Sharon and Steve avidly believe that reading fiction should be enjoyable, and that stories are entertaining. You can find more amusing novels in their
