About Sharon

I'm a lawyer by day, theatre critic by night -- which means I'm a writer pretty much all the time. I'm very happy to be part of the "With an Accent" team, because there's nothing more fun than writing about something I truly adore, and sharing my enthusiasm for it. OK, yeah, there probably is SOMETHING more fun. It involves afternoon tea, seeing a great show at the National Theatre, and catching the views of London lit up at night, by walking across Waterloo Bridge -- thoroughly satisfied gastronomically, intellectually, and emotionally. Or Disneyland.
