Sharon J. Wishnow

Welcome everyone
to my corner of the Internet. I’m so happy you’ve landed here.

I write upmarket fiction (book club books) about flawed, strong women with plots that have environmental themes. I’m drawn to stories that show how changes in the environment change people.

My debut novel, The Pelican Tide is set in Grand Isle, Louisiana in 2010 during the Deepwater Horizon Gulf oil spill. It’s coming June 11, 2024, from Lake Union Publishing. I can’t wait for you to read it.

Spend a few minutes here and learn about me, my novel, and other writing projects, check out some yummy recipes from the book too.

I’m available to speak at your book club or professional events about writing and research. Let’s connect.

A combo of everything I love: research and writing.

Research for Writers and Other Curious People is my newsletter on Substack where I provide a regular source of research tips, advice, and ideas for creatives who want to build authentic characters, worlds, and settings.
If you’re not a writer or creative, and fall into the Other Curious People category, I hope you’ll find bits of trivia, stories, and information to liven up you next coffee, speed dating, uncomfortable elevator ride, and all manner of interactions where you wish you had an ice breaker.

And for everyone, this is the place to keep up with my publishing news and all that is on my mind.
