Back in 2009 Sharon was hired by Healthwise to produce, record and edit their medical audio library which was being re-recorded. She produced over 400 hours of medical scripts. That got her thinking about audio books. In 2016 she produced her first book for local author, Conda V. Douglas. They have since done 2 other books together. In 2017 Sharon built a studio to record audio books connected to her home. Although she has the ability to go mobile she prefers to record at her studio.
