Cheryl was born in Duncan, Oklahoma, and lived there until the summer she turned six years old. That summer, she and her family moved to Seminole, OK.
Being the much-younger sibling of the family, her two older sisters were off to college by the time she was eight, and Cheryl was feeling very much like and only child. The upside was, that by third grade, she had discovered her talent for writing and storytelling, and that deep love of putting words together entertained her (and hopefully others) through the years to come.
An oilfield engineer for Baroid, Cherylís father was transferred to West Virginia her senior year in high school. With sorrowful goodbyes, Cheryl left all of her friends behind and moved to West Virginia, where she met and fell in love with her husband, Gary. Coincidentally, Gary went to work for the Federal Aviation Administration whose training academy is in Oklahoma City. Within a few years, Cheryl and Gary had relocated from Charleston, WV to Oklahoma City, OK, where he taught training classes at the FAA facility and Cheryl was back home again.Now, thirty years of marriage have passed and Cherylís children are grown. Her daughter, Jessica, lives nearby in Oklahoma City and works at an actorsí casting agency. Casey, Cherylís son, is preparing to join the Air Force ROTC in January and attend the University of Oklahoma.
During the past many years, Cheryl has worked on a variety of novels, short stories and screenplays, as well as being co-owner of her own editing/teaching company.
She has sold several newspaper articles to The Oklahoman, the premiere Oklahoma City metro area newspaper. She has sold six short stories to Adams Media (F&W Publications) for their Rocking Chair Reader series, as well as their Christmas anthologies, and she has also sold numerous short stores to Chicken Soup for their various collection of anthologies.
In May of 2008, Cheryl signed a contract with The Wild Rose Press for her first full-length novel, Fire Eyes, which will be released May 29, 2009 in both e-format and in print. She has another manuscript under consideration with TWRP, and also works with an agent for some of her other novel-length manuscripts.
She and her business partner, Al Serradell, are co-owners of FabKat Editing Services. FabKat offers a wide array of editing services locally and world wide, and Cheryl and Al teach writing workshops for both adults and teens. They have worked extensively in venues all around the Oklahoma City metro, including churches, libraries, schools and career centers, as well as with the Indian Education Department of one of the major school districts.
