Sharon Griffiths Books & Biography


Born and brought up in Wales, Sharon had a free-range 1950s childhood. After grammar school, she read English at the University of Bristol, then worked for the BBC and later for ITV. On a press trip on a goods train between Ipswich and Glasgow, where she was the only woman on board with forty men, Sharon met her husband and moved north and into newspapers. Among other journalism she now writes five newspaper columns a week.
Writing is all Sharon has ever wanted to do - even when she was rushed to hospital with a suspected brain haemorrhage, she was busy composing an article inside the ambulance.
