About Sharron

What do you say about yourself?  Hmm, not an easy job.

I’m an author and have written one non-fiction book, WAITING ON THE OUTSIDE, the story of my son and his journey to incarceration and federal prison. My second endeavor was the compilation and forward for inmate Brett McKeehan’s book of art an poetry, SOLITARY WORDS. (All you ever wanted to know about prison)

My third book, SURVIVING LA BESTIA, is a novel about two children from Honduras fleeing the gangs and danger in their barrio and trying to reach their mother in America. As they travel through Mexico on La Bestia, the Death Train, they befriend other migrants and encounter the terrors of traveling through a dangerous, foreign country. Will they survive and reach their mother in America?

http://www.prisonchat.wordpress.com is a blog I maintain to support and give information to friends and family of those incarcerated. Lastly, I am a married, retired, medical administrator. I began as a nurse in the critical care units of University Medical Center, the county hospital in Las Vegas, Nevada and moved into administration from there.

I love to write and blog, so follow me on this journey.

    Sharon, my loved one, who is serving LWOP, just called me–our weekly phone call–and told me he had met a man whose poetry he really enjoyed. He said he doubted I would be able to find the book, but he gave me Brett’s name…that is how I also found you. Mary Lynn


    • Hello Mary,
      Yes, I wrote the introduction and organized the book for Brett. The artwork in it and poetry are amazing. It is available on Amazon. The name of the book is Solitary Words. by Brett McKeehan.
      Sorry to hear your loved one is in prison, but hopefully he will be out someday and will have made that commitment to never go back. With you standing by him, he has a much better chance.
      I don’t know the rules there, but hopefully you can order it from Amazon to be sent to him. If you aren’t sure, call the prison and ask them if books can be sent to inmates from Amazon. Let me know if you need anything else :).
      Take care,
