Sharon Kay Penman (born August 13, 1945) is an American historical novelist. In UK editions of her books, Penman has dropped the middle name "Kay" and the initial which she originally used.

Penman is best known for two trilogies, the Welsh Prince Trilogy and the Plantagenet Trilogy. In addition, Penman is the author of four medieval mysteries, the first of which, The Queen's Man, was a finalist for the Best First Mystery Edgar Award in 1996. Penman's novels and mysteries are set in England, France, and Wales, and are about English and Welsh royalty during the Middle Ages.

Penman's first novel, The Sunne in Splendour, is a stand-alone novel about King Richard III of England and the Wars of the Roses. The book was written when she was a college student, but Penman lost the manuscript, which she later rewrote entirely. Penman is best known for meticulous research of the characters, settings, and events presented in her fiction.
