  5. Hello Shari, I am big fan of the Greer Sands series. I was wondering , are you going to be working on a 3rd novel for the series? Please do let us know :)

    • Hello Deep, I do not have another Greer Sands book planned for this time, but I will eventually do one, because I love those characters and the world they live in. Right now, I have a new book coming out June 3rd, “Invisible Ellen” the story of a woman who is overweight and unattractive who grew up with no family, so she has learned to be invisible in society to survive. It’s told in a very positive and funny way, and ultimately, she finds friendship and a better future. I hope you will enjoy as much as the others. Thanks so much for taking the time to write in.

      • Shari – I’ve always admired your work, going back to that “Doumani” blockbuster we all worked on – what was it called? Oh yeah, lucky me – I forgot! Thank God! :-). Anyway, I’m living in NY and developing a film that I’d like to offer you, so when the time is right, I’ll give your agent a call and we’ll go through the “dog & pony” show. God Bless, take care and hopefully we’ll be in touch in the near future. ~ Craig Vincent

      • Hi Craig! That masterpiece ended up being called, “Mad About You.” Funny, because I recently reconnected with Claudia Christian. I hope you are doing wonderfully, and good luck with your project. I have a new book coming out soon, so I’ve been crazy busy with promotion for that. I look forward to hearing from you again soon! Shari

    • Hi there! Am I correct in assuming that you are the gorgeous dark haired girl who shared the cover of Atlanta Magazine with me back in, was it ’80? Wow. If you are, please send me a message, I’ll try to dig out that photo, I didn’t keep much of my modeling stuff, but I have some. Hope you are fabulously happy! Shari

  7. I would like to thank you for the efforts you have put in writing this
    website. I am hoping to see the same high-grade
    blog posts from you later on as well. In truth, your creative writing abilities has encouraged me to get
    my very own website now ;)

  8. Hi Shari! My name is Weber. I am from Brazil. I am watching B5 on dvd and you are great. Your new movie, Scream of the Devil, old fashioned terror, it seems great. Thanks.

  9. Hi, Shari ~ Looking forward to reading your books! This is the first I’ve heard of them.
    Peter Renaday

    • Hi Peter! If are free, we are having the book launch at Vroman’s in Pasadena on Thursday, (6-5) at 7 p.m. with a party afterward. I’d love it if you could join us!! Shari

  10. I just finished Invisible Ellen. What a wonderful book! Reading it actually made me feel as good as if I’d spent the evening with a close friend. I’m already planning to buy several gift copies. I’m so glad it caught my eye at Barnes & Noble tonight!

    • Thank you! Official reviews are nice, but a personal note like this means the most to me. I’m so glad Ellen spoke to you, it truly comes from my heart. Shari

  11. Hi Shari, I am reading Invisible Ellen, and I am wondering if you have a diagram or sketch of Ellen’s apartment building. It is a character in itself, and i would love to have a reference for it, if you have one. Thank you!

    • Hi Liz, The only sketch I have is in my brain. let me see if I can sum it up. The building is U shaped, 5 apartments on the bottom, three on the top, hence the flat roof next to Ellen’s under which is Curtain Connie’s apt. All the apartments face the ‘courtyard’ which is almost filled with the three wooden stairways from the back doors. Ellen can look down and see into three apartments, the two across, and the one to her right. If you looked at the U from above, Ellen’s place would be on the Left, the building sits on a corner, Ellen’s street window faces one of the streets, T-bone and Cindy’s, across from her, face a narrow alley. I hope that helps! And mostly, I hope you enjoy the book! Have a wonderful summer. Shari

  12. Just finished your “Invisible Ellen” book and could not put it down. Wonderful characters! More adventures for Ellen and Temerity please.

    I am reading Invisible Ellen ( almost finished) I just love this book and the two girls. You write so well I feel like am watching a movie.
    So glad to hear there is a sequel coming out. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

    • Hi Dale! Thank you so much, and I’m glad to say that “Emerging Ellen” will be out next summer! It’s so kind of you to let me know that you are enjoying the book, it makes an author’s day! Best to you! Shari

    • Thank you Eileen!! What a wonderful way to start my day. The sequel, in which Temerity, Justice, and Ellen all figure very much, will be out next summer, so far titled, “Emerging Ellen,” but you never know about those publishers!! Thanks again and have a wonderful day! Shari
