Sharon was born and raised in Glendale, California. With degrees in zoology
from Rice University and UCLA, she has had a series of fascinating careers:
research on the ultrastructure of the retina, representative for Leiter's
Designer Fabrics, teacher and organizer of classes for gifted children, and
administrator of the California Association for the Gifted and later of the
Angeles Chorale. And, of course, full-time mom to the webmaster of this site,
and his sister. Now she's a serious quilter, genealogy researcher,
church treasurer, and board member for three non-profits.
A fan of Saturday Review's Double Crostic puzzles since her days at UCLA,
she enjoys creating crostic puzzles in her spare time. You will probably
pick up on her diverse interests as you do her puzzles.
This Web site began as a son's attempt to help her with the bookkeeping of
puzzle creation, and has now evolved into a way for people to play her
puzzles, and those of others, on the Web, iPhone and iPad. We hope
you like the result!
