Sherry Lewis is an award-winning, national bestselling author who writes in several genres. Along with her writing career, she has been teaching writing workshops for more than two decades.
Sherry’s career path as an author didn’t exactly follow a straight line. Before becoming a full-time writer, Sherry worked such prestigious jobs as manager of a convenience store, Christmas tree decorator, poinsettia dresser, cashier, keyboard player/vocalist in a band, secretary in an insurance office, secretary in a bank, administrative assistant for an attorney who was also a trustee in bankruptcy, and, finally, a judicial assistant to a federal judge.
In 1993 Sherry launched her mystery-writing career with the sale of her first three books to Berkley Prime Crime. In early 1994 she sold her first contemporary romance to Harlequin Superromance, launching her career as a romance writer. Call Me Mom (Harlequin Superromance) was published in January 1995, with No Place for Secrets (Berkley Prime Crime) following in July. Sherry left her career at the federal court to pursue a full-time writing career in 1996.
Sherry is the author of the national bestselling Piece of Cake Mystery Series (as Jacklyn Brady), the popular Candy Shop Mystery Series (as Sammi Carter) and of the Scarlett O’Malley Mystery Series, the Fred Vickery Mystery Series, and several contemporary and time-travel romances as Sherry Lewis. She’s currently at work on on a brand-new project which she is planning to indie publish. She’s a long-time member of Romance Writers of America, where she served for four years on the Board of Directors, including one year as President.
She has a deep and abiding love of the written word and has been an avid reader as long as she can remember. Though she still loves the feel of a book in her hands, Sherry freely admits to loving her e-reader, too. It’s much easier to move 3,000 books on her Kindle than it is in boxes.
Originally from Montana, Sherry spent several years living at the base of Utah’s Wasatch Mountains and now lives a block from the beach along Florida’s Emerald Coast. She’s the mother of two daughters, the grandmother of two amazing little girls who are growing up way too fast, and the human for two cats who rule the roost at home.
