Archived Bio. Not part of the current Guest list.


Sharon is the co-author along with her late husband Jerry Ahern, of over 80 novels, including the internationally best selling Survivalist series that sparked a whole sub-genre of adventure stories in post-holocaust science fiction. The series started in the 1980s and with the help of fellow co-writer, Bob Anderson, continues to this day where the Rourke family battles aliens, genetically altered bugs and evil politicians. So far, there are 34 Survivalist books in this continuing SF soap opera.

Along with many action/adventure novels such as those in the The Takers series and They Call Me the Mercenary, written under the pseudonym Axel Kilgore, the Ahern name can be found on The Golden Shield of IBF which takes place during Dragon Con. Watch out for the tree demons and witches!
