Sharon D. Anderson, PhD, is a Cape Cod Author and Author Coach. She holds a PhD in Metaphysics and spent most of her years working in the corporate setting. She is a consultant in the field of self-publishing, a workshop presenter, and founder of the Cape Cod Writers’ Studio. As an Author Coach, she specializes in most areas of fiction, non-fiction, children’s, and young adult literature. Her passion is helping others achieve their literary dreams.
After completing her doctorate in 2000, Sharon began focusing on her writing career. Amazon gave birth to the KINDLE in 2007 and self-publishing soon became a viable option for aspiring authors, and she was quick to make use of this exciting publishing option. In her own career, she has self-published more than fifty books, in e-book, paperback and hard cover formats across several genres, in both fiction and non-fiction. During the ensuing years, she has taught many workshops on self-publishing and writing both in-person and on-line
Novice writers come to Sharon with partially finished manuscripts or notebooks spilling over with thoughts and scribbles in the hope that she will help them make it into a book and even get it published. She works with each writer, personally, sometimes for a year or more to help them achieve their goals. No one is ever turned away. She is a knowledgeable and willing resource for helping each writer either publish traditionally or self-publish, . Post-production, she guides them in promoting their book with targeted marketing strategies.
During the last six years, Sharon’s clients have collectively published more than twenty-five books with her guidance.
Sharon looks at novice writers as storytellers with great potential. Many of them begin with limited writing skills and little confidence, but they have a story to tell—and more often than not, they are the ones who blossom into serious writers. Writing is a skill that anyone can learn. Storytelling is a gift that belongs to that person alone.
When the Cape Cod Studio was formed, Sharon chose a lighthouse as its logo because lighthouses are a beacon to the world; so are our books.
