Sharon Mertins was born out of a spark of imagination somewhere underneath the deep Guatemalan sky. She lost her pixie ears at a very young age and it was her enduring pursuit to find them again that veered her into a life of endless word slinging.
She’s a master dreamer and a great sleeper based in Berlin, where she spends her time knitting strands of thoughts together, trying to make sense of them by turning them into elaborate tales.

Her work has been published in Leopardskin & Limes, Literally Stories, The Wild Word, Jersey Devil Press and her story “Plankton” received an Honorable Mention for the Glimmer Train Short Story Award for New Writers May/June 2016
