Zoë Sharp

Enough about me. I thought for a change I would mention writers I share something with, be it Kindle or Nook or mysteries or the Keys. In this case it has to do with short stories on Kindle, but also mystery writing.
Zoë Sharp just released a collection of short stories –Fox Five – on Kindle. She is one of a growing number of authors who have signed onto the e-Book bandwagon. You should check out her website - http://www.zoesharp.com – and you’ll recognize some of the titles if the name doesn’t ring any bells for you. Here is a little bit of information about her character, ‘Charlie’ Fox and look who the character is compared to!
Charlotte ‘Charlie’ Fox has been described as a female version of Lee Child’s Jack Reacher. Like Reacher, Charlie’s background is military. She was a first-class shot who was selected for Special Forces training, but that’s where it all went horribly wrong. Chucked out of the army in disgrace, Charlie drifts through a variety of jobs in the early books, including teaching self-defence, then a chance meeting with Sean Meyer, her old army training instructor (and a big part of the reason she was thrown out of the army in the first place) changes her life yet again.

Introduced into the world of professional close protection, Charlie embarks on a new career as a bodyguard, one that is perfectly suited to someone with her lethal abilities. Whatever the doubts of her family − or her own misgivings − she embraces her new life, even moving to the States to join a prestigious NYC close-protection agency run by Parker Armstrong.

But life is never simple for Charlie − either professionally or in her relationship with Sean. She will be faced with danger from all sides, both connected to the clients she’s sworn to protect with her life, and on a much more personal level.
