Sharon Krum is a journalist and author based in New York City. She writes about everything from celebrity, women’s issues, fashion and health for The Guardian, The Times of London, The Australian, Harpers Bazaar Australia and The Australian Women’s Weekly among other publications. She has also written for People, The New York Post, Marie Claire and Fitness.
Sharon Krum is a graduate of Monash University Law School, Melbourne, Australia, who subsequently sorely disappointed her mother by announcing she intended to become a writer. Said mother still has not completely forgiven her.
In the meantime she joined the Melbourne Herald as a journalist working as a police and education reporter before fine tuning her shortsightedness watching many, many, hours of the tube as a television reporter and reviewer. In the early nineties she studied screenwriting at Columbia University, winning the Woolrich Fellowship and Humphreys Prize for screenwriting.
Today she works as a freelance feature writer and author based in New York, filing for newspapers and magazines around the globe including The Australian, The Guardian, The London Times, The Australian Women’s Weekly and Harper’s Bazaar Australia. She has also contributed to the New York Post, People, Marie Claire, Fitness and the Qantas airways in flight magazine. Interviews have included Kathleen Kennedy, Jenna Bush, Kathleen Turner, Hugh Jackman and Jodie Foster.
As an author she has published two books, Walk of Fame and The Thing About Jane Spring, both comic fiction. Her third novel, The Doctor Will See You Now, is nearing completion and is hopefully comic too. In her spare time Sharon likes to read, gaze at beautiful clothes in fashion magazines, attend movies and comedy. Now an American citizen, she also enjoys apple pie.
