Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Born and raised in west Michigan, Sharlene attended Spring Arbor University. Upon graduating with an education degree in 1971, she taught second grade for two years, then accepted an invitation to travel internationally for a year with a singing ensemble. In 1975, she married her childhood sweetheart. Together they raised two lovely, wonderful daughters, both of whom are now happily married and enjoying their own families. Retired in 2003 after thirty-one years of teaching, "Shar" loves to read, sing, travel, and spend time with her family-her grandchildren, in particular! Shar launched her writing career in 2006 with the contemporary romance Through Every Storm, a Whitaker House release that was named a finalist for Book of the Year by the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW).

Shar's next series, the popular Daughters of Jacob Kane, comprises Hannah Grace (second place, Inspirational Reader's Choice Award 2010), Maggie Rose, and Abbie Ann (third place, Inspirational Reader's Choice Award 2011).

Reviews - What do customers think about Loving Liza Jane (Little Hickman Creek V1)?

Skillful writing will make you feel part of the community.  Sep 26, 2009
Loving Liza Jane was my first book from Sharlene Maclaren,and it drew me in from the beginning.I felt that I was part of the community of Little Hickman Creek, got totally caught up in the challenges and experiences faced by Liza Jane. Loved this whole series and certainly plan to read more work by her. Highly recommended for lovers of historical romance fiction.
Loving Liza Jane  Jul 29, 2009
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the first in a series of 3! Strong, courageous and determined but above all a true love for God in spite of times of doubt and many temptations and danger, the characters show us how to perservere in spite of it all, working together for the good of the community. Our God's love and faithfulness came through in fiction as it does in our lives when we wait upon the Lord.
Finally!!! An Inspirational Historical Romance author who writes "real" romance that quickens the pulse and nourishes the soul! Three cheers for Sharlene McClaren and her Little Hickman Creek Series, a must-read for romance lovers everywhere. Ms. MacLaren is a master at weaving deep and stirring characters into a historical tapestry of rich and rugged pioneer life at its most endearing. Without question, one of my favorite authors!

Great Escape!  Sep 16, 2008
I have read all of MacLaren's books, and the Little Hickman Creek Series does not disappoint! Is it the most challenging book you'll ever read? No. But that is the beauty of MacLaren's books. They are for everyone! I found Loving Liza Jane to be a good clean romantic story that made me feel hopeful (as her books always do). I totally agree with one reviewer that said MacLaren does a great job of incorporating scripture that makes the reader grow right along with the characters. I thought that Liza Jane was a fantastic determined character!
Don't Be Confused By Wrong Comparison  Sep 15, 2008
Someone earlier said that she was disappointed because this wasn't a Francine Rivers' type book. While I do agree that it isn't a Francine Rivers' book like Redeeming Love, what the reviewer did was to confuse those who are looking for this type of historical romance.

Loving Liza Jane is well done and reminds you of the Christy-type book or Lauraine Snelling's type of historical romances. The author hooked me into buying the next two books in this series because I loved the characters and the setting. And since I often recommend books to bookclubs, etc. I not only did that, but those people also wanted the next books about Sarah and Emma, like me.

If you like the prairie romances, this is a book you will like. While it is yes, sweet, it also deals with tough issues. As a former classroom teacher, I also could relate to the classroom/teacher scenes, too. She characterized small towns and children well, too. MacLaren uses humor and drama in good proportion.

I recommend this book for all the above reasons.
