Sharon Brown Keith lives outside of Tyler, Texas, in the charming community of Arp. She and her husband, Brian, have two grown sons, Chris and Charles. Sharon is retired but works part-time as a junior high counselor. After a couple of days of enjoying her part-time work status by lounging on the couch, eating bonbons, and painting her nails, Sharon decided to put her time to better use and began writing her memoir, Mockingbird Moments. This is her first book.
Sharon grew up in the historic East Texas town of Nacogdoches and graduated from Nacogdoches High School in 1981. She received a degree in education, curriculum, and instruction from Texas A&M University in 1985. After teaching English, history, and speech at the high school level for sixteen years and sponsoring every extracurricular activity known to man, Sharon completed her master’s of school counseling degree from the University of Texas–Tyler and has worked as a counselor since 2002.
Sharon enjoys spending time with her family, attending Texas A&M and Stephen F. Austin sporting events, reading, and hanging out with friends. She hopes to continue writing, with the next book recalling her experiences in public education.
