Welcome to the Official Site of Melissa Sharman
I wanted to thank everyone first for checking out my page! I am the author of The Legend of Wahkan, my very first novel. It's a story that has been a part of my life for fourteen years. Yes, I was a young teenager at the time, and I wasn't thinking about hanging out with friends or talking to boys! My mind was elsewhere...
The Legend of Wahkan began as an interesting dream, one I just couldn't let go of. I was only thirteen years old (January 17th, 2000) just a month shy of my fourteenth birthday. I was a kid who was in love with reading, writing, and the story lines in video games. I guess you can say that I'm a closeted nerd compared to my image, but don't be so quick to judge the pretty face! ^_^
So now, no one has to wait any longer for this book! My publishing experience with The Legend of Wahkan is about to reach its end, but that doesn't mean my journey will. To my friends, family, and fans in Prattville, AL and possibly Washington, D.C., you will see my face around during local events, book fairs, etc. My top priority is YOU! Your comments, concerns, reviews mean the most. I am also in the process of outlining my next series. I'm thinking about saying goodbye to my most beloved characters without providing a sequel, but who knows right? We'll just have to wait and see!!
I wanted to thank everyone again for the support. Some of you already know my back story and how hard I worked on The Legend of Wahkan, and to the ones who are just coming to this page to learn more, don't hesitate to message me via facebook or my gmail account: firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire further. Thanks again!!

I am in the process of reviewing the "galley" aka the interior of my book.
"I am getting tired from the eye strain...But I am still smiling!"
"Sick, but I have someone here to keep me company. It's been a busy holiday season!"

The busy holiday season has delayed my progress, and then I can't seem to get over this cold!

A new year, a new beginning! Enjoying our last days of snow! We are moving back to Alabama. The review of the galley is back underway.
"Happy New Year! I am not sure if I will miss the snow, but I cannot wait to get back to the south!"

I'm back in Alabama! Hoping that my husband will have his orders soon. Working hard on this review!
"My book has gotten longer after this review process, and I'm not even at the halfway point!Whoa!"
