Born in Sydney, Australia. I've been writing since I was five years old. I've spent a lot of time figuring out how to write novels. I am the founding editor of SCRIBBLE magazine.
Writing Interests, Goals & Published Works:
I mostly write fiction, though I have had both non-fiction and fiction as well as poetry published. My work has appeared in Baltimore magazine, Chesapeake Life magazine, Lite Literary Newspaper and other venues. One of my articles, co-written with Olga Dugan, appears in Cheryl Dellasega's book "Mean Girls Grown Up." My most recent publication is my short story "Imprints," which appears in the anthology "New Lines From the Old Line State: An Anthology of Maryland Writers."
Ways BAF Might Be Helpful To You:
I'm always happy to meet other writers, plus I'm always looking for great submissions for "Scribble."

By chance, are you planning to attend the new event, the fall gathering at Wildacres? Meeting Lois Gray was a highlight for me this year. As you may have heard, we "performed" together under Judi's direction at the Gong Show. Hoping to stay in touch,

Here's a little memento from 2007.
Sherry, I am not sure that the actual photo was uploaded. If you will send me your regular email address, I can send the photo(s) a different way.
Hi, Sherry. Something has been wrong with computer this week. This is the first time I've been able to get the link to WriteNow comments to open without freezing my laptop. It's great to hear from you. I missed you last year. I hope, hope you'll be on the mountain this year.
South Pole Station is an unflinching yet loving look at family in all its forms.
The typical approach of the modern debut novel is to grab its audience's attention, to make a splash of the sort that gets its author noticed. This is how you get a book deal, this is how you quickly draw an audience -- books like Fight Club, The Kite Runner, even Harry Potter each went out of their way to draw in an audience, either through a defined sense of language, a heightened sense of…
