Sharan Newman is a medieval historian and author. She took her Master’s degree in Medieval Literature at Michigan State University and then did her doctoral work at the University of California at Santa Barbara in Medieval Studies, specializing in twelfth-century France.

She is a member of the Medieval Academy and the Medieval Association of the Pacific. Newman has done research at the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris, the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique France Meridionale et Espagne at the University of Toulouse and the Institute for Jewish History at the University of Trier, as well as many departmental archives.


“Readers looking for quality historical fiction ought to add Newman’s name to their lists of must-read authors. In addition to providing readers with a vivid look at life in France in the twelfth century, Newman also offers absorbing stories with well-drawn sympathetic characters.”
Mystery Scene


“Sharan Newman’s medieval mysteries use scholarship, subtlety and humor to investigate the universal labyrinth of murder and morality, heart and soul. Her fresh, provocative view of women’s roles in the medieval milieu offers a background as richly detailed as fine stained glass.”
Carole Nelson Douglas, author of the Irene Adler Sherlockian suspense series
