As you probably know, Sharon had a second major heart operation in eighteen months, on Thursday. She came out of the operation well but suffered breathing difficulties yesterday and has been put under sedation for a few days. Your Prayers would be so much appreciated. She's been through so much and is so brave and determined as well as talented.

Her story in the WRP 'Jewel Of The Night' series 'Charade of Hearts' is nominated for best short Romance. (It's the one starring her dishy virtual butler, Oliver.) If you'd like to vote for her story, here's the link:

The poll finishes in today, 10th January in just a few hours.

Of course she can't tell people about the nomination herself at the moment, so if you think her story should win, please spread the word. It's a wonderful story, full of suspense and romance and it would mean the world to her to win.

The main thing I ask for though, is to keep praying for her to recover from this setback and soon be on the road to recovery.

Thank you on Sharon's behalf,

I really need to keep my forum up to date better, but it's been a hectic few months and the time has flown/

First of all Thank you to everyone who voted for Sharon's Book. It won the 'Best Short Romance' category. Sharon's sister was able to tell her the news, so she was thrilled and I'm so glad she knew about the award, because tragically, as most of you probably know, on April 11th my dear friend tragically lost her battle and passed away. It was all the more heartbreaking because Mary Rickson and I had been planning to visit her in May. I still flew over to America as planned, and Mary and I visited her lovely family and saw the places Sharon loved. I will try and post some pictures as soon as I can, but I'm still desperately trying to finish the third book in my Starquest series. I just wanted to say a big thankyou on Sharon's behalf - I know winning that award would have helped keep her spirits up during her final stay in hospital.
