Writer and Producer Sharon Letts began her life's work at the age of 24 as a flower gardener in Southern California, under the shingle, “The Secret Garden."
When a local television programming director asked Sharon to produce and host a gardening show, her company name became “Secret Garden Productions,” producing a gardening series titled, “In and Out of the Garden,” which aired for three years in four counties in Southern California.
Sharon went on to executive produce “Off the Beaten Path,” a California travelogue for PBS with a focus on art, food and wine.
After working as a field and segment producer for documentary and magazine shows in Los Angeles, Sharon was brought up to Humboldt County to produce a news show when she presented with breast cancer, Lobular Carcinoma.
Because she was in the cannabis capitol of the world, she was given Rick Simpson Oil (RSO), putting the cancer into remission, and helping her do away with 10 prescription medications, changing her life and career forever.
“I’m from the 70s," Sharon explained. "Cannabis has been my medicine for a very long time, I just didn’t know it until I had cancer. I support both recreational and medicinal use, but now, it’s become my only medicine, and in my fifties, I feel better than I have in years.”
Today Sharon writes internationally for many magazines profiling patients, medicine makers, and everything surrounding the burgeoning cannabis industry. Her essays have been translated into Spanish, now published in Mexico and Spain. She’s also coming back to television full circle, developing intelligent TV shows on what she calls “good medicine.”
