Sherrie L.

I’m a mom of a two-year-old living with my family in a lovely little cottage in France, Europe. The place is very peaceful and calm, with unique views and an amazing climate. We have a cat who is a big philosopher and loves to sleep on the sun-drenched lawn in the front yard.

I loved reading sci-fi and fantasy since I was a child and started writing in those genres when I was eight. I never visited any writing classes but I studied books on writing and followed their advice diligently. There are people who have very developed imagination, they can create whole worlds and many amazing things, and I’ve always envied them. I'm trying to do the same.

In my novels I aim for the same thing every time - to collect various facts about the world and put them into a complete system – my world view, my philosophy. And it's always people who are at the center of my philosophy: my characters. I really love all of them. They are like my closest friends, they're almost like family to me. Sometimes it seems to me that I have sex not with my husband but with my characters!
