Sharyn Bradford Lunn was born in Sydney, Australia, but most of her schooling occurred in a small country town before she returned to “the big smoke” so she enjoys both city life and the rural hideaway. Before embarking on a career in nursing she worked briefly in a telephone exchange then a kindergarten. Sharyn has also worked as a senior investigation officer with the New South Wales Health Department and later the Health Care Complaints Commission.

After reading Alex Haley’s Roots, she developed a passion for genealogy and history that deepened with the ensuing years. This went hand in hand with another newly discovered interest: writing. And so the Southern Skyes series was born.

Now, after writing five books in the series (the sixth book still to come) Sharyn has turned her attention to another of her passions – the good old fashioned mystery, and is currently working on her first cozy mystery series featuring a young college student, Cody Costin, as the amateur super sleuth.

When not writing or researching, Sharyn can be found enjoying time at home on the New South Wales Central Coast with family and friends, swimming, hiking, walking her dogs, reading, painting, tracing someone’s family tree, or enjoying a rock concert. She digs a good rollercoaster ride as much as a trail bike ride. To round out her adventurer’s spirit, she embraces the joy of travel and learning about other cultures.

Look for more books from Sharyn in the coming months and years, as she winds up her Southern Skyes series, develops the Cody Costin Cozy Mystery series and tinkers in other writing endeavors.
