Local Author Spotlight

Every so often, the Scottsdale Public Library highlights one of the authors from our local author book collection. This month, we'd like to introduce you to Jody Sharpe. Her latest novel, Town of Angels is third in the Mystic Bay Series.

Sharpe is an award-winning author of The Angel's Daughter and To Catch an Angel. She had a rewarding career as a Special Education teacher. Writing about angels became healing after losing her daughter and then her husband. The valuable lessons she learned about moving forward and loving life in the now have set her on a mission to tell stories with love, humor and spiritual awakening. The fictitious town of Mystic Bay has given her an avenue to put characters and themes together, hopefully enlightening the reader towards contemplation of the precious life and memories we are given.

More information about Jody Sharpe can be found at Jodysharpe.com.
