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 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 and Limes, Literally Stories, The Wild Word, Jersey Devil Press, Cafe Irreal, Visual Verse, and has received an Honorable Mention for the Glimmer Train Short Story Award for New Writers May/June 2016
She is also one third of The Story Strumpets, a podcast focused on workshopping short stories, dissecting them and talking about how to make them be the very best they can be.
