Sharon Lee (born September 11, 1952 in Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.) is an American science fiction, fantasy and mystery writer from Winslow, Maine. She is the co-author (with Steve Miller) of the Liaden universe novels and stories,[1] as well as other works, and individually the author of two mystery novels.

Background[edit]

Born Sharon Lee Backof, Lee graduated from Parkville Senior High School in 1970, and attended University of Maryland, Baltimore County during the late 1970s while employed as Administrative Aide to the Dean of the School of Social Work and Community Planning at the UMAB Professional Schools in downtown Baltimore.

Throughout her life, Lee has been employed as various flavors of secretary, as well as advertising copywriter, call-in talk hostess, nightside news copy editor, freelance reporter, photographer, book reviewer, and deliverer of tractor trailers. Beginning in August 1997, she served three years as the executive director of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, and was subsequently elected vice president, then president of that organization.

Lee's first professional fiction publication was "A Matter of Ceremony," Amazing Stories, 1980.[2] In addition to her contributions to the Liaden universe, she has written two Maine-based mystery novels—Barnburner and Gunshy, published by SRM Publisher, Ltd—and more than a dozen short stories.

Sharon Lee and Steve Miller were married in 1980. In 1988, they relocated to central Maine, and now live in Winslow. [3]
