Sharon Rich (born June 11, 1953) is an author and film historian, best known for the biography Sweethearts about 1930s singing stars Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy. She was close friends for many years with Jeanette's older sister, actress Blossom Rock (aka Marie Blake). Along with interviewing hundreds of people, Rich had access to many collections of private letters, Eddy’s personal scrapbooks, diary entries, FBI files and MacDonald’s unpublished autobiography. As follow up documentation to Sweethearts, Rich has written several additional books and edited and written over seventy magazine articles. In 1995 she was awarded a Dame of Merit by the Knights of Malta for her contribution to History and Literature.[1]

"Sweethearts" was published in hardcover in 1994 and was a selection of the Entertainment Book Club. The book release party was held at the American Film Institute in Washington, D.C. where Rich was a guest speaker.[2] Sweethearts was updated in 2001 and again in 2014. In June 2014 the Sweethearts 20th Anniversary edition was #14 on Amazon's best seller list.[3]

She is the grandniece of Hollywood composer and bandleader Fred Rich.
