"Champagne aka Sharon Terry",
was born and raised in Newark New Jersey, where she still resides.
She raised her two children in West Milford, New Jersey. She always imagined how
wonderful it would be to write about her Masters or Bachelor's Degree, or anything
educationally impressive, but completing her education is something she did not do.
Explaining why would probably involve writing a book on the subject with absolutely
no stories of "poor, poor me." James Brown said he did not study how to sing, he just
sings. It's the same for Yvonne - writing is just something she does.
Yvonne's credits are too numerous to list. She is an actress, writer, director and
producer. She is the sole creator of "Yvonne's One Woman Show." Though the stage
was not easy in the beginning of her acting career, she has come quite a way since
then. Her short plays and stories have been seen at local, community theaters in
New Jersey, New York City's Times Square, off Broadway, Newark Symphony Hall and
at The New York City Pride Center, just to name a few. Her longest running show,
"Queer Monologues" made its debut at Alchemical Theatre in the Upper Greenwich Village.
Yvonne is currently working on a new book of plays,"Queer Monologues Too."
She is a single parent who grew up in the city of Newark, New Jersey. After earning her GED,
she went to college to continue her education with the study of communications and customer
service relations. Later, she attended medical school twice, and then finally on to cosmetology
school, obtaining degrees in both.
