It has been about six years or so since I started writing books. However, I have been journaling since I turned nine. Writing has been my outlet for stress, anxiety, and adulting. When life gets hectic, it’s fun to daydream about being in a new place or meeting different people. Of course, life doesn’t always allow for such extravagance, so I enjoy creating new worlds and characters for myself and others who either like to read, and, or need a coffee break from life.

At first, writing was about the story, but over time, it has morphed into a type of art, wanting to create realistic people and places, and now, I focus on the craft of both story telling and character development. I strive to make each book better than the last because I love to grow and learn, research, and explore new ideas.

Writing is one of my biggest joys in life, and I’m grateful for the support I have received through the years, encouraging me to push ahead and keep growing.

“Last Words by Shari Ryan is a gripping, emotional, spell-binding journey of bravery, redemption, and love.Once I picked up this book, I could not put it down, completely captivated by the story. I felt every emotion the characters went through, one minute my heart caught in my throat, the next overwhelmed with the love these characters shared. I urge everyone to read this book. Allow the story to consume you as it consumed me, and remember the lesson that has sadly been forgotten lately... Love is stronger than hate.”

“Women and children to the right. Men, to the left,” I once said.

From 1942 to 1944 I was what some called a Jew killer. Though, I have never hurt a soul, I was responsible for separating Jewish families, ensuring they would never see each other again. Those who were sick, were sent to their death ... by me because I was forced to follow the enemy. The war stole my right of beliefs, my goals for a future, my left arm, and the love of my life.

I saved Amelia …

… then I lost her.

And after more than seventy years, I’m told she’s alive and asking for me.

Will love be enough to overcome the silence of more than seven decades?

Ryan clearly has a passion, devotion and love for the tragic history that faced these characters and countless others like them. No other author could have told such a timeless tale of desperation, love and hope. Charlie’s entire life was owned by Hitler, until love set him free. Don’t miss out on one of the most incredible character arcs I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading.

Unspoken Words took me on a journey through a time no one should have had to experience let alone live though. It was written in such an astounding way that I could not stop turning the pages. I could feel the pain and desperation laced through the words, but the hope and never ending love refused to be distinguished. … This book is captivating, raw, honest, emotional and heartbreaking but it is also full of love, hope and promise for a better tomorrow.
