Do you want to weave your words into stories that shine?

Equity & Inclusion: It is my goal to lift up writers of all backgrounds, create an inclusive environment, support, value and embrace individual differences, and provide a space that is welcoming to all.

Native American Land Acknowledgement: Book Coaching by Sharon is located in modern-day Mesa, Arizona, the ancestral lands of the Akimel O’odham tribe and before that the Hohokam people. This place where we live and work has been and continues to be the home of indigenous peoples. We acknowledge and honor the sovereignty of, and express gratitude for, the 22 Tribal Nations and their stewardship of the land that makes up Arizona, and which we currently occupy.

You transformed not only my writing but my thinking as well. My approach to how I write and tell my story has evolved. You gifted me with the confidence to do this.” – Tanja Bauerle, Author/Illustrator
