Sharon Hewitt Rawlette’s favorite genre, both to read and to write, has always been memoir, and her first book-length memoir was released in May 2020. The Supreme Victory of the Heart tells the story of the harrowing months following her French fiancé’s announcement that a girl he knew from high school was back in his life. It’s a story about the twists and turns of human love and the way that life’s strange coincidences can sometimes lead us to the strongest, truest parts of ourselves.
In addition, here are some of the other, shorter pieces of memoir and personal essay Sharon has published.
“When my fiancé told me about the other woman,” Salon, 22 April 2011.
“Nurturing Genius,” What The Flicka?, 24 October 2013.
“On Writer’s Terror,” BREVITY’s Nonfiction Blog, 30 October 2013.
“Cop Cars,” The Baltimore Review, Summer 2014.
“Waltham, Massachusetts,” Orion, November/December 2014.
“Letting Go of Success,” What The Flicka?, 7 April 2015.

Thanks for the like. I love the way blogging introduces new sites, new ideas.
Sharon, are you still blogging? Did your memoir come out? I’d like to follow you, but I don’t use Twitter. Can I follow you on WordPress? – Diane
I’ll admit my blogging has become a bit sporadic, to say the least. There are just so many other compelling things demanding my attention at present. But I do hope to post something substantial here in the not-too-distant future, so feel free to follow by clicking the Follow button at right. As for the memoir, I’m still working on finding a satisfactory publisher!
