ABOUT HerShe CREATOR
Sharon Cleveland Blount,
Producer, Director, Playwright
“I journaled, wrote poetry and even wrote and directed plays in my youth. I guess I've been writing, in some capacity, all of my life. I even worked as a grant writer for an after school program in North Hollywood---It's always been about the writing for me."
Sharon received her MFA in Creative Writing from Mount Saint Mary's University in Los Angeles. “Unexpectedly, I re-discovered a passion for writing as a playwright. I tapped into that creative place from my youth. Play writing offers such immediate rewards. Once you have a finished script, as the writer, you have the ability to bring your vision, your words, right to the stage. That is empowering. I’m now excited to write stories from my heart, imagination and life experiences."
Weave Addiction, is satirical in form, offering bundles of insight into the underworld of wearing weaves. "Weave Addiction scratches the itchy truth."
