Author tag!

I was invited by the wonderful Camelia Miron Skiba to participate in a blog tour for writers to answer a few questions about our writing process, and then pass the baton to other authors. Camelia is a great friend and I’m honored she asked me to be a part of this!! Here are my answers to the specific questions.

What Am I Working On?

I'm feverishly working on the final book in my Port Fare series, Unbearable. I’m in the editing phase right now but hopefully it will be ready by summer!! I’m absolutely in love with the cover (yes it is finished!!) and hope to have a cover reveal when the final edits are complete.

How Does My Work Differ From Others of Its Genre?

I don’t know if it is different from others in my genre, but I try to evoke real emotion into my characters. I will think for days on a situation, work hard to put myself in that situation in my head so I can better related to what is going on. I also draw on experiences I've had and try and related them to the character so the emotions are authentic. I’m not sure it that is what most authors do, but it is how I write.

Why Do I Write What I Do?

Simply, I write what I enjoy. I enjoy YA fiction, and Fantasy fiction. I also enjoy Chic lit, and hope to dip my hand into that genre also.

How Does Your Writing Process Work?
I come up with an idea and quickly write it down. Then I spend the next week or two writing the novel out in my head before begin a single page. I create a rough outline to help me remember my ideas, although I usually change the story several times before I’m finished. And that is how my novels are born!

To continue with this game of tag, I’ve selected one of my favorite authors Cami Checketts. She’s written a new novel that is fresh and exciting titled The Colony, and it will be released soon!! Check out her blog next week on December 2nd:


  1. Great job, Sherry. I feel blessed and so very grateful to call you my friend. Happy Turkey Day <3

  2. I can't wait to read Unbearable. Are you sure about summer? Perhaps a late winter/early spring release?
