Sharon Ledwith

Today I'd like to welcome Sharon Ledwith to my bayou. First of all because today is a special day for her. It's her birthday!  Those down in Louisiana are  celebrating her birthday by going to the Mardi Gras parades and yelling "Throw me something mister!!!"  The groundhog also comes out to say hi on her very special day! And because it's pretty much the coldest day of the year, he jumps back in his burrow to get warm.  Speaking of cold...err cool, Sharon as has a very cool book out called The Last Timekeepers and the Arch of Atlantis. Here's the scoop!



When Amanda Sault and her four classmates are caught in a major food fight at school, they are given the choice of suspension or yard duty. It was a no-brainer. A two-week crash course in landscaping leads the kids to discover a weathered stone arch buried in an overgrown backyard. Instead of a forgotten lawn ornament, it turns out to be an ancient time portal from the lost continent of Atlantis. Chosen by an Atlantean Magus to be Timekeepers—legendary time travelers sworn to keep history safe from an evil force—the five children, along with two offbeat adults, are sent on the adventure of their lives to save the Earth from an uncertain future. The Timekeepers’ first mission lands them in England in 1214, where they must find an adolescent Robin Hood and his band of merry teens before history is turned upside-down.
 
 
About Sharon...
 
After 21 years in the graphic trade biz, Sharon Ledwith swapped her drafting table for a computer, and entered the wonderful and whacky world of writing. She started pounding the keys until her fingers bled and skin hardened. Eleven years, and many drafts later, her middle-grade/young adult time travel series, THE LAST TIMEKEEPERS was born.
 
Sharon lives in the wilds of Muskoka in Central Ontario, with her hubby, a water-logged yellow Labrador and moody calico cat. She survives harsh Canadian winters on caffeine, comfort food, and the occasional dram of scotch.
