Sharon Giannini was born and raised in the city of Danbury, CT. on the border of New York State. She has had a passion for picture books ever since she was very young. Her love for the literary arts led her to earn a Bachelor's degree in English from Central Connecticut State University. She also holds an Associate's degree in Business Administration from BayPath University. After spending eight years in advertising, Sharon decided to stay home full time when her son was born. She lives in Connecticut with her husband, her two kids, and a Boston terrier named Scarlett. When Sharon is not writing, she loves spending time with her family. She also loves fitness, all types of music, cooking, boating, and anything creative. She also loves to watch movies and binge watch Netflix and HGTV home renovation shows. Sharon writes for children but loves to read psychological thrillers. Inspired by her son, Sharon hopes her debut picture book encourages little readers to explore their own imaginations.
Sharon's debut picture book "Just Imagine" is a story about imagination and the Power of Persistence. Meet Jack, a little boy with a BIG Imagination! Jack will discover that with a little bit of thought and the power of his own imagination, he can make things happen! He wants to know what the clouds taste like. He believes they taste just like cotton candy. Follow Jack as he goes on a journey using only the power of his imagination. His adventure is difficult, and at times he feels like giving up. He must remember to believe in himself and be persistent. This fun and whimsically illustrated story is sure to spark the creative minds of your little ones. Little readers will easily relate to Jack and they will be pushing for him to reach his goal in this sweet and light-hearted story.
This book was inspired by a conversation Sharon had with her son when he was just five years old. She was tucking him into bed one night and he asked if he could taste the clouds. That conversation led to her book idea and first paragraph. She built the rest of the story around that conversation. Her children continue to inspire her every day.
I am so excited to announce I have my third picture book coming Fall 2023! This book is extra special because it's a project I am working on with my dad. This is a Christmas book entitled "The Best Time of the Year" based on a Christmas song my dad wrote several years ago. I can't wait to share this silly, fun, rhyming book all about Santa and his team of elves that are all working hard to deliver presents on time! Release Date Coming Soon!!
I love receiving photos like this! This child is doing a wonderful job of adding colors to his coloring page at the end of Molly McMaster's A Walking Disaster. I included a coloring and hidden items activity page. Keep your photos coming and maybe you will see yours posted here !
