Sherry has spent her whole life writing. Or at least it feels that way sometimes. From the time she wrote a poem with her spelling words in the second grade, she fell in love with putting words together in some creative way. After spending many years writing academic papers, her creative side re-emerged. She published her first novel, My Secrets Cry Aloud, in 2009. Her second novel, Blessed, is scheduled to be released in 2019.


Sherry has spent nearly a quarter of a century at Eastern Kentucky University. She spent thirteen years as a professor in English, nine of those as the Director of the Writing Center. She is currently the Vice Provost at EKU. She holds a PhD in English from the University of Kentucky, an MA in English from Eastern Kentucky University, and a BS in Mass Communication from Middle Tennessee State University,
