Smorgasbord Blog Magazine – Guest Writer – Sherri Matthews #Memoir – Holiday Reading, Ghosts And The Norfolk Broads

Good Monday morning/afternoon,dear friends! Things have been busy at the Summerhouse these past few weeks, culminating with not one, but two trips to London in just the last week. All or nothing, it seems. The first, of course, to the Bloggers Bash and the second to see Metallica at the Twickenham Stadium with my boys. My first time at a real live gig and it was awesome, amazing, surreal…all of those and much more. Perfect timing then to wrap things up with a nice, relaxing boating holiday, albeit one from my 2014 archives. Massive and grateful thanks once again to lovely Sally Cronin and her wonderful Smorgasbord Blog Magazine for featuring the fourth and final of my archive memoir posts. I hope you’ll join me for this brief sojourn on the Norfolk Broads, but beware: a lake at sunset brings a ghostly tale, and a true one at that… Enjoy!

Delighted to welcome back memoir author Sherri Matthews with four posts sharing her experiences of childhood and teens and living in the UK after many years in California. In the final post this series Sherri takes us on a holiday to the Norfolk Broads, a fabulous boating holiday, and an introduction to the more ghostly side of this idyllic part of the country.

Holiday Reading, Ghosts And The Norfolk Broads

Holiday reading. What beats a book crammed full of twists and turn, thrills and spills to keep us occupied while lazing on the beach or reclining on a deck chair by the side of a pool somewhere hot and Mediterranean? What indeed!

About Sherri Matthews

Sherri once worked in the medical and legal fields. One day the office closed, she got laid off and she praised the heavens for the chance at last to write her book. Some years later, 'Stranger In A White Dress', a memoir, is ready for submission. Published along the way in magazines, anthologies and on her blog, Sherri writes about her travels, nature and the process of memoir. She also shares snippets of her life as a Brit 'Mom' who raised her children in California, as an advocate and carer for her adult youngest diagnosed at eighteen with Asperger's Syndrome and stories of her dad's lifelong journey from prison 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. Writing stories from the past, making sense of today and giving hope for tomorrow.
