Eleyne-Mari Sharp (pronounced “Elaine Marie”) is a visionary with many interests (she especially loves Color and Water) and a very eclectic background.


"The first thing I remember writing was a science fiction story when I was about 13. It had sort of a Jetsons-meets-Lost in Space-kind of vibe where the guys were all hunky and driving around in flying cars and the girls wore silver mini-skirts and go-go boots. At the time, I was wearing mini-skirts and go-go boots, so I didn't have to stretch my imagination too far!"


Since 1980, Eleyne-Mari has worked as a professional writer/copywriter/editor for television shows, advertising agencies, publishing companies, film festivals, and screenwriting conferences. 


She has written Inn Lak'ech: A Journey to the Realm of Oneness, Seaglass Christmas: A Little Blessing Mystery, Mad About Hue: A Memoir in Living Color, and Write Awake: A Conscious Path to Creativity and Change, as well as hundreds of magazine and newspaper articles. Eleyne-Mari's writing was featured in two anthologies: How I Found the Write Path and Simply Color for Everyday Living.   She is currently working on Moonwater Beach and Lightmover: The Illumination of Silver Violet


As a writing muse, Eleyne-Mari has conducted numerous writers conferences and workshops for adults and children. She is the founder of Ascension Cabin at Camp NaNoWriMo and the First Write™ 24-hour writing marathon on New Year’s Day.

Eleyne-Mari is a radio show host and producer, certified color therapist, spiritual aromatherapist, and crystal worker. 













She enjoys laughing, reading, writing meditations, designing jewelry, collecting seaglass, leaf peeping in autumn, creating collages and journals, constructing dollhouses and miniature roomboxes, and watching "Downton Abbey", "Poldark," and "Sherlock" on PBS.  


She is a vegetarian who would like to be a vegan but she loves cheese and honey too much.


Her favorite colors are teal, seafoam green, magenta, and purple.


Eleyne-Mari lives in Rhode Island with her yacht captain husband, Nicholas, and their mischievous little furbabies, Tim and Holly.
