Sharon Grann Mingus, a Los Angeles native and entrepreneur who worked as a Whoopi Goldberg lookalike for fifteen years, has published her new book “Seven Shades of Sha-g”: an autobiographical account of bad choices, worse luck, and the perseverance that enabled her to emerge from every challenge as a survivor.

Sharon was born on April 15, 1946, at the end of World War II. Her father worked for the Veterans Administration until he retired, and mother worked as a cosmetologist.

Sharon was raised in Santa Monica, CA where she integrated her elementary school and, along with her mother, was faced with racism on a daily basis.

Sharon was a child prodigy, blessed with an operatic voice, singing at school events and church socials. Her family worked hard to provide her with piano lessons from the age of five years old.

Sharon grew into a blossoming teenager whose parents instilled a strong sense of self-worth and a spiritual foundation. Her parents encouraged her to work in church, experiencing her first job as the organist of her Sunday School choir and director from the age of thirteen.

At the age of 15, she experienced her home being taken by eminent domain to make way for the Santa Monica freeway. Moving to inner-city Los Angeles, Sharon experienced the culture shock of a sheltered small-town girl in a big city, and everything, as she knew it, changed forever.

“Seven Shades of Sha-G” chronicles Sharon's life from the age of eighteen and the events that shaped her into the woman she has become.

Published by Page Publishing, Sharon Grann Mingus’s engrossing book is an illuminating memoir recounting a life full of heartbreak, challenges, and triumph.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “Seven Shades of Sha-g” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
