Mild Mannered wife, mother and grandmother by day, Shari Dare spends her nights writing and writing and writing. Having been inspired by an English assignment in her sophomore year of high school, she had never quite finished the assignment. New stories pop into her head every day with never enough time to write them all. A Wisconsin native, she grew up a country girl, but enjoys her "city" home. She and her husband of over 50 years, Bob, live in a mid-sized town close to the Illinois border. Deeming Bob "A Saint" for putting up with her she has never regretted marrying her high school sweetheart just two days after graduation in 1964.
