Sharma Krauskopf began her career after graduation from Purdue University working with disadvantaged populations. She worked her way from direct services to administration of multi-million dollar nonprofit organizations serving people with special needs. She began sharing those experiences through her own company, Innovative Consulting Services (ICS, Inc.) all over the world. The consulting meant endless travel so she gave it up so she could be home closer to her family and began her writing career. One of the advantages of the consulting was it resulted in her falling in love with Scotland where her ancestors were members of the Clan Morrison. She began an e-zine called Scottish Radiance to share Scotland with the world. That e-zine was the number one e-zine for many years in the early days of the Internet and stories from it are still available on the internet. Writing and editing Scottish Radiance brought a publisher to her in 1999 wanting her to write a book entitled Scotland: Complete Guide and Road Atlas. Since that book she has had 28 book printed by publishers in the UK, Ireland and USA. The books include non-fiction, fiction and books for children. Her love for Scotland grew to the point that she and her husband decided to buy a vacation home in Scotland. The first piece of property they looked at was Neist Pointe lighthouse on the Isle of Skye. Even though they were outbid on that property it convinced them lighthouse living was for them. They spent the next nine years looking for a Scottish lighthouse home. They finally bought Eshaness Lighthouse on Scotland's Shetland Island archipelago in the North Sea across from Norway. David A Stevenson a member of the family of the world's best lighthouse builders designed and built it. The search for and living at Eshaness are responsible for her very popular books about lighthouses and her experiences at Eshaness. In 2014 she wrote a screenplay and produces a feature length motion picture with the goal to honor lighthouse keepers entitled Lighthouse Unmanned. That motion picture was filmed in 2015 and will be released in 2016. She began in 2016 she writing screenplays and producing animated motion pictures for children based on her popular children books.

Waterford Crystal is the first ever fully illustrated history of Ireland's most iconic cut-glass manufacturer, its name synonymous with high-end glassmaking throughout the world. Former Waterford glass cutter and local historian John Hearne explores how the art of glassmaking first arrived in Waterford at the turn of the sixteenth century. Hearne reveals how Waterford Crystal developed as a brand under the guidance of skilled artisans and shrewd business leaders with an eye for ingenuity. Waterford developed a global reputation for quality glass and crystalware that was rocked and buoyed by events that span centuries, including the American Revolutionary war, the World Fair in London, World War Two and the attacks of 9/11. A testament to innovations in design and brilliant marketing strategy, Waterford Crystal also examines the brand's failures - dubious accountancy practices that led to a long and bitter strike in 1990; the avarice and self-aggrandisement that ultimately led to the company's demise in 2009. Preserving the memory and legacy of Waterford Crystal for future generations of glassmaking, Hearne pays tribute to some of the finest artisans Ireland has ever produced, whose passionate devotion prefigured inspired works of art - turning basic ingredients, sand and ash, into objects of aesthetic beauty.

Based on an exhibition organized by Joachim Pissarro and curator of contemporary art at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Lauren Haynes, Crystals in Art: Ancient to Today explores the complex and varied connections between crystal and art throughout the world. Included are both ancient artifacts--such as engraved gems, figurines, and vases--and works from contemporary artists around the world that explore the power of crystal in art by drawing on its form, properties, and mysterious qualities. Featuring more than sixty-five works from ancient Egypt and Greece, through to Rome, China, India, Japan, the Middle East, the Americas, and beyond, this book invites readers to discover how the power of crystal transcends the boundaries of time and space. Taken together, all of these objects illustrate how crystal has bridged the gap between things we can see and things we can't: science and art, fact and faith, medicine and magic--the visible and the invisible. Published in collaboration with Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and University of Arkansas School of Art.
