About Me

Growing up, Sherry could often be found sitting at her grandmother’s feet, listening to whimsical fairytales, or in her mother’s lap, pretending to read along with the words to the stories. Sherry never believed these were just stories, though. No, she believed the stories to be the retelling of actual family history and their adventures. In those family tales, Sherry learned what it was to be strong in a world where strength, character and your word were your bond—indeed, your connection—to others.

But those stories also gave her a love for the sea, and a deep-seated belief that a life dedicated to public service was her true path. But maybe the fairytales encouraged a belief in something else as well, something a bit more magical. So she grew into adulthood wanting to be a marine biologist but becoming a nurse instead and then a writer of modern folklore and mysteries. Each of her stories focus on men and women who make life choices and an exploration of the consequences of their decisions. Because whether good or bad, intended or unintended, there are always consequences to the choices we make, and those choices ultimately make us who we are or wish to be.

When not at the beach collecting seashells, sea glass or other fascinating bits from the sea, you’ll find Sherry at work coordinating care for at-risk patients, or relaxing at home, listening to the Dave Matthews band while digging in the garden—that is, if she’s not busy plotting her next murder mystery or paranormal romance!

Mission/Vision Statement

What You Wished For is a place for us to get to know one another through our conversations and my books, blogs or original artwork and crafts that are linked to the characters and settings in the books. This is a whimsical place, filled with the belief we are happiest when we have a shared purpose, experience love and recognize the knowledge we can each make a difference in the places we live. Perhaps there’s a smidge of magic included in that. Perhaps not. All I ask is that you believe…


Writing should tell stories that are engaging and enjoyable. Read what readers and book reviewers think is most engaging about my books.
