About/Links

Hi! Welcome to Norah's Puzzles. Here I (mostly) blog as Norah Sharpe. Elsewhere I (mostly) publish using my real name, Shannon Rapp. Here's some of the other stuff I do around Crossworld: 

I write for Daily Crossword Links and Crossworld News & Notes, sister publications that bring you all the day's crosswords and news & events from around crosswordland. 

I write puzzles for Lil AVCX, the midi-puzzle division of AVCX, a crossword subscription that I personally believe is the best $30 you can spend on crosswords. There's a free trial and some free sample puzzles. 

I regularly test solve for: The Juggernaut | Fill Me In | Grid Therapy | AVCX+. If you have a puzzle that you'd like me to test (or guest host!), please email me

I occasionally guest blog for Sally's Take. See my recent takes: 7/9/224/12/22 | 3/5/22 | 2/12/22 

Sometimes my work gets mentioned in reviews:
The Crossword Scholar: 7/12/22 (this puz) | 5/23/22 (this puz) | 3/24/22 (this puz) | 2/12/22 (this puz) | 2/8/22 (this puz) | 1/17/22 (this puz

I co-hosted the STL Crossword Puzzle Tournament with Patrick Blindauer, June 2022. Will there be a second?? We hope so!!


I tweet, usually about crosswords, sometimes about baseball.  |  I twitch, usually about crosswords

My friends: People that have puzzles on this blog, that have hosted my puzzles, or that I've worked with elsewhere. Please go solve their puzzles!
