Sharon Elwell Foster's Bio:
Sharon Ewell Foster never shies from confronting difficult issues with truth, wit, and humor. This double RITA-Award finalist and Daily Guideposts writer has found loyal fans that cross racial, religious, age, and gender boundaries, and bestselling author T.D. Jakes has called her a "Picasso of the pen." A former U.S. Defense Department instructor, writer, and logistician, Foster is the author of the bestselling and Christy Award-winning Passing by Samaria as well as four other novels. Born in Texas, raised in Illinois, and part Cherokee herself, she spent the first year of her life on a Navajo reservation. She has two grown children (her favorite editors) and now makes her home in Durham, North Carolina.
