Sharon Kendrick's Writing Place - Author of The Sheikh's Bought Wife
I write in a small room in my house right opposite my bedroom, so I don’t have very far to go to work! I have an orange velvet chaise-lounge on which I lie when I’m desperately seeking inspiration and there are various framed pieces of embroidery on the walls (I love embroidery, though am much too ham-fisted to be any good at it myself!).
Above my desk you can see an amazing signed print by one of my favorite artists, Bob Dylan. It’s of a woman sitting in a room and she looks like she’s thinking….but what is she thinking?
Lastly, there’s the view from my window – a patch of green in the distance and, in the foreground – a piece of stained glass hanging in the window. There is also a terracotta tub filled with strawberry plants, which the birds will probably get to before I do! But one thing I’ve learned during my writing career is that the view is incidental – and if my story is working, all I can “see” are the characters and the world they inhabit.

To the horror of my parents, I left school at sixteen and held a bewildering variety of jobs: I was a London DJ (in the now-trendy Primrose Hill), a decorator and a singer. After that I became a cook, a photographer and, eventually, a nurse. I waitressed in the south of France, drove an ambulance in Australia, saw lots of beautiful sights but could never settle down. Everywhere I went I felt like a square peg—until one day I started writing again and then everything just fell into place. I felt like Cinderella must have when the glass slipper fit!
Today, I have the best job in the world, writing passionate romances for Harlequin. I like writing stories which are sexy and fast-paced, yet packed full of emotion—stories that readers will identify with, laugh and cry along with.
My interests are many and varied—chocolate and music, fresh flowers and bubble baths, films, cooking and trying to keep my home from looking burglarized! Simple pleasures—you can’t beat them!
I live in Winchester, one of the most stunning cities in the world, but don’t take my word for it—come see for yourself! I regularly visit London and Paris. Oh, and I love hearing from my readers all over the world…so I think it’s over to you!
