Originally born in Chicago a long time ago, Sharon Ahern met her future husband and co-writer, Jerry Ahern, on the very first day of High School, and they became friends for life. They eventually married and had two wonderful kids, Jason and Samantha, and five beautiful grandchildren. Sharon began her writing career in the public relations department of Illinois Bell Telephone and stringing for a local newspaper. Always an avid researcher-Sharon was always eager to do book reports and term papers-she was happy to pull out the Britannica and become an instant expert on whatever information Jerry needed for a story, whether a particular time in history or facts concerning a far away place. Now the musty volumes have been replaced with the internet. She has interviewed people on a wide range of topics such as Voodoo practices and biker gangs. Sharon is also a professional photographer, her works having been published in magazines throughout the world. When not working with Jerry, Sharon enjoys reading, antiquing, and gardening in the long Georgia summers, where they have resided for over thirty years.

Excellent Cold War Alternate History Invasion of South Florida by a Societ-Cuban ArmyMarch 19 2015
- Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Due to its 1987 publication, this becomes a Cold War alternate history in which a grief-stricken Russian general supported by a Stalinist political officer send a division of Russian and Cuban soldiers into south Florida. The authors follow multiple threads as Americans respond while the pot simmers in Washington DC where the vie president and Soviet premiere have agreed to a deadline to get the situation settled. Two agents, American and Russian, have to reach the general to convince him to withdraw. US troops stack up on the border of Florida and Georgia. An evangelist leads an army of armed followers to attack the invasion force. The president is at his girlfriends home...in occupied Florida...and has to evade capture. Soldiers in Florida take it on themselves to fight back against the occupiers. A better story than I expected. Draws you right through.
