Sharon Linnéa is the author of the award-winning biography Princess Kaiulani: Hope of a Nation, Heart of a People. A short article in a local Maui newspaper in 1985 about Hawai‘i’s beloved last princess ignited her fifteen-year study of Hawaiian history, which resulted in the book that one native Hawaiian reviewer says “is the most accurate, most informative, and most compassionate book by any author on this subject.”

One of America’s top inspiration journalists, as well as a spellbinding speaker and seminar leader, Sharon speaks often on the Hero Principles, training participants to choose thoughts and actions that will lead them to act as heroes in their everyday lives—as well as preparing them to understand and act upon their own personal beliefs when faced with extraordinary circumstances. She is profile biographer for the A Study of Heroes Curriculum, currently in use in forty-eight states and three foreign countries, which has been used by over 1 million students.

Sharon was a founding producer for, the Web’s largest multifaith Web site, where she ran the Inspiration Channel and sent Daily Inspiration newsletters to over 3 million subscribers. She has been an editor or contributor for more than a half a dozen Chicken Soup for the Soul books and recently served as head writer for the new morning show on the Hallmark Network.

Besides Princess Ka’iulani, her own books include Raoul Wallenberg: The Man Who Stopped Death and America’s Famous and Historic Trees, with noted arborist Jeff Meyer, in tandem with the PBS series of the same name. She is also a featured contributor to From the Ashes: A Spiritual Response to the Terrorist Attacks on America as well as the new Big Book of Angels.

Sharon enjoys addressing writer’s conferences about the secrets of writing for the current booming inspiration markets.

Sharon is married to Robert Owens Scott, editor of Spirituality and Health Magazine, and has two slightly lolo keiki, Jonathan and Linnéa.
