About Pearson Sharp

IMG_20160124_175819Hey there! So I’m a writer, doing my writer thing, living the California dream, and writing the followup trilogy to my first novel, The Sovereign. 

I’ve got the travel bug, and have traveled to 37 countries so far, and just got back from a trip to Ukraine where I fulfilled a lifelong dream of visiting Chernobyl. I moved to San Diego in 2011 and have been getting a feel for this city, which is pretty different from where I grew up in Ohio. I finished my first novel in March of last year, and it’s now available on Amazon. Now the trick is to do the thing twice.

When I’m not writing, I’m reporting for a national television station here in town. It’s something I never imagined doing, but it’s heaps of fun, and is giving me all sorts of opportunities to explore creative new outlets, and expand my writing repertoire with short, punchy, journalistic-styled prose.

And when I’m not doing that, I’m probably out snorkeling or taking pictures. There’s a lot to be said for living in a land of perpetual summer.

  1. Hello Idlelore, I am Wanda Griffith, and I am so please to meet you. I am also writing a book, that I hope will be out this year. It is so nice to meet a writer and someone who has been to China. Wow! that is exciting. Do you have an agent for your book? and who is your publisher? I am thinking of letting xulon publishing do my book. I am finish writing my book, I am just doing the finishing touches, trying to cut down on the expense of as much editing as I can, they charge by the words you know. lol. I would like to get a copy of your book when you are done, what is the title of it? My title is Secrets revealed, the best of both worlds. So, as writers and bloggers, I hope we can keep in touch, and exchange books when they are published, hopefully as you said, this year 2012. Thanks for allowing me to share on your blog. Wanda Griffith


  2. Sir, you have a wonderfully enriching and fulfilling site. I look forward to reading more, and enjoy your style of writing. Hope the book gets out and on the shelves soon!


    1. Many thanks to you kind sir, the encouragement is sincerely appreciated. I’d love to have my book out and published as well, you’ll be sure to see any updates when they arrive. Thanks for stopping by!


  3. Greetings awesome blogger! I have listed your blog as one of the most versatile blogs on wordpress! I find your blog to be hands down one of the most interesting sites on the entire web, and I commend you immensely for covering a vast array of topics. If you would like, you may make a similar post. If not, that is your choice, and no one can hold anything that you choose against you. I have started following your blog, and I look forward to all of your future posts.



    1. thanks a ton! I appreciate it, for sure. I’m not sure I’ll be doing any short pieces any time soon, but if I do, I’ll come back and let you know. You’ve got a great site, I’d be honoured to be a part of it =)


  4. Nice to hear from you. San Diego is one of the places I once lived, long ago. I spent much of my youth traveling the country and playing music, and I think it’s a great inspiration for a writer. I don’t have much time to follow many blogs, but I’ll be following yours.


  5. I love stories, and I love the idea behind idle lore. Rich name, rich theme 🙂

    Intrigued by your blog and experiences. Perhaps that’s because I can relate to some of them…when I graduated I went and taught English in *Japan* for a year and now am back on the west coast, working in earnest at becoming a novelist 🙂


    1. Wow! We have nearly parallel experiences. I graduated and went to teach English in China. I think I probably would have preferred Japan. I think I probably would have preferred the bubonic plague, honestly, but that’s another story lol. But yeah, came back to the west coast and am trying to get my novel published! Good for you, I always wish kindred spirits the best of luck, it’s nice to think that I’m not toiling alone out here lol.


  6. Hi Pearson, nice to meet you 😉
    You sound really focused on your writing goals, and I think it’s great that you are not thinking too much about the publishing world, but choosing to keep your eye closer at hand – on your book. So many of my students (I teach on a few MA courses in the UK) are already panicking about agents when I think: you need to finish your book and make sure it’s the very best you can do before even thinking about the next step. Good luck for the year ahead!

  7. It’s so nice to meet you, Pearson. I have to say that I’m a little envious that you live in San Diego. That’s where I saw Triple Espresso’s hilarious show years ago. I like to listen to ocean sounds when I write, so I’m jealous that you get them live. Just color me pea green with envy. I wish you luck and can’t wait to read about your journey.

    1. Haha it’s a wonderful city, to be sure. I used to live in Ohio, and I honestly miss it quite often. But the ocean isn’t a bad substitute for the forest. Thank you for your kind words, and I hope I have exciting updates to offer before too long =)


    1. haha it’s not as hard as all that. Just don’t give up, is the only real lesson that matters. Keep pushing through all the garbage they throw at you, and you’ll make it to the top. They can only slow you down, they can’t stop you, only you can do that. So keep writing, keep reading, and the rest is just details.


  8. I love to watch you on OSNN
    Im a retired grandma and like to read
