Sherri is a memoir writer and storyteller with a camera and a blog, seeking publication of 'Stranger In A White Dress', her memoir set in the late 1970s of an English girl with an American dream, an adventure crushed by tragedy and redemption on the journey home. Sherri is compelled by a burning passion to bring true stories of broken lives and shattered dreams into the light of love, hope and a place in the world. Published along the way in national magazines, anthologies and online in memoir, poetry and flash fiction, Sherri also blogs about her travels, nature, writing and snippets from her life in California as a Brit 'Mom' for seventeen years, as advocate carer for her adult youngest, diagnosed at eighteen with Asperger's Syndrome and stories about her dad, from prison-life to the streets and back again. She is a regular contributor to 'Carrot Ranch' an online literary community. Today, Sherri lives in England with her hubby, Aspie, two black cats and a very grumpy Bunny.
