Heather M. Sharpe
Can her gift help her find an everlasting love?
Welcome, Heather. I’ve asked Heather to provide us with a few questions for Ledger and Corinne. I hope you enjoy getting to know them a little better.
Corinne, your talent helps you find other people’s missing objects. What’s the most interesting object you’ve ever found for someone?
That would probably be the violet plants I found for Mrs. Weber, one of my tenants. She’d set them on her patio to get some sun, and the new gardener thought they were part of the plants bought for the courtyard, so he planted them while she was at work. Mrs. Weber decided they looked great in the courtyard, so she agreed to leave them there.
That’s funny. While you and Ledger drove across the country, you regaled him with stories of four girls growing up on a vineyard in California. Is there a particular story you could share with us?
We played outside a lot, and one day when Mom and Dad were gone, we decided to pretend to go fishing. Charlotte climbed into the bed of a truck with the fishing pole, and cast out into the driveway where we “fish” waited. The line didn’t cast far at first, so we tied a rock to it. We played for quite a while, taking turns casting and the fish scrambling for the rock. Whichever fish was reeled in got to be the next fisherman. It was a great game, until Casey cast and hit Charlotte in the face with the rock.
Oh, my! Was she okay?
Yes. We thought we’d broken her nose, but it just cut it and bled for what seemed like forever. After that Mom and Dad made us promise to stay in the house while they were gone. We still managed to get in trouble, but most of the time nobody bled.
Ledger, you and Lynn both have some pretty spectacular jewelry-your necklace and his ring. Is there anything special about these pieces?
My pendant is definitely special. When our men achieve their first shift, they are gifted with a piece of jewelry that represents our eagle sides. Then, if they are ever lucky enough to find their mate, this is what they offer their mate to seal the mating bond. Legend says that the colors dancing in the opals are pieces of the magic that keep our eagle brethren and our soul tied together, and that magic helps create the bond between the mated couple. My pendant was the first mating charm Lynn designed and created, and I’ve always been proud of it.
Thank you both for being such good sports. One last question, the one most frequently asked of every new couple. Are children in your future?
*Ledger laughs* Well, we aren’t starting our family any time soon, but since I was able to reassure Corinne about some concerns she had about having a shifter’s children… *Corinne slaps her hand over Ledger’s mouth, and answers for him* It was a simple yes or no question. Yes, eventually. *Ledger laughs more*
Sounds like a lovely pendant. I’ll never look at opals the same again. And thank you for giving us a peek at how Ledger and Corinne interact with each other.

Bio: Heather M. Sharpe lives on 6 acres in Central Kansas with her husband, perfect baby boy, mother-in-law, and sister-in-law. In case the house isn’t full enough, it also includes four noisy dogs, one cat who inspired For the love of a Sphynx, another who torments him, and a lizard. At night, all of them think they need room on the bed (except the lizard, thankfully).
Up until the birth of her son, Heather taught elementary school. Now she chases around her toddler and writes whenever he naps long enough to turn on the laptop. When not writing or chasing the baby, Heather enjoys hanging at the lake, waking up early to tear up the water on the wakeboard or wakesurf board, and making s’mores.
