About Sharon Skinner-
“One of the reasons that I write is that I feel driven to analyze the motives and causes of personal behavior and their relationship to societal conditioning. Ray Bradbury once told an interviewer that, “Science fiction pretends to look into the future, but it’s really looking at a reflection of what is already in front of us.” Fantasy does something similar for me. It allows me to look at and engage readers in examining an issue in a way that gives the perspective of distance, rather than shoving it in the reader’s face.”
“Something hissed and a wet chill wrapped around Mirabella’s wrist and crawled toward her shoulder. She whipped around and glimpsed the outline of someone sitting on the edge of her bed. But as she stared, the image faded to a blur.”
