Sharon Timms

Self-confessed word-nerd, raconteur and collector of red lipsticks, Sharon Timms loves little more than the power of a good story (and finding the proofreader’s unicorn, the elusive double space). As a seasoned Tropical North Queenslander with 20 years in tourism, hospitality and event management, Sharon loves little more than exploring, talking about and writing about this extraordinary piece of paradise she calls home. A regular contributor to local and national media publications, Sharon is an articulate, brand-connected and exciting content creator who one day hopes to master hula hooping.
