Welcome back, Sherry. What would you like for our readers to know about you personally?
When I was a child, I loved being creative. I would make up silly songs, draw cartoon characters, and make school projects from scratch. I also loved to read and use my imagination. In the fourth grade, I won an award for my true-life story titled “Friends Can Be So Mean.” Even though I graduated from
with a Speech Pathology
degree, my love of books and being creative sparked something inside. I wanted
to be an author. Biola University
Tell us about your family.
I met my husband the first week of college, and we’ve been together ever since. Last week we celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary. We have four children, two boys and two girls, between the ages of 18-25. Currently, they all live with us, but we know it won’t last long. We are enjoying this stage of life with our young adults, but are looking forward to having an empty nest and smaller grocery bills.
An empty nest is a wonderful thing for parents, especially if their children and grandchildren (and great grandchildren) all live within five miles of them. Have you written other nonfiction books?
Yes, I have five other nonfiction books for middle graders in print. My first nonfiction book for girls is titled The Christian Girl’s Guide to Style. I have two other books for girls in that series, along with a middle grade fiction/devotional/journal titled Love, Lexi: Letters to God. I also wrote The Adventure Bible Book of Daring Deeds and Epic Creations: 60 ultimate try-something-new, explore-the-world activities for Zonderkidz, which released in April.
Do you have any other books in the works right now?
I just completed a 365-day devotional for Zonderkidz for their Adventure Bible line. Wow, now that was a big project! And currently I’m writing the second book in the True Heart Girls Devotional series.
What kinds of hobbies and leisure activities do you enjoy?
I live by the coast in
and love decorating my beach home
and looking at real estate. You can find me searching the Internet for the
latest house trends, chalk painting my furniture, and helping friends design
their rooms. I also wear a Fitbit and go for walks everyday while listening to
Audiobooks. It’s amazing how fast time flies when you’re listening to a good
book! J California
Why did you write the featured book?
I wrote True Heart Girls Devotional: God’s Promises for Me! because I wanted girls to discover promises to help them deal with the sometimes-overwhelming emotions that come with growing up. I also wanted girls to have a lot of fun while reading this book. There are stories, games, recipes, and crafts, and other interactive pages that will point girls to God’s word and help them dig deeper into each promise.
What do you want the reader to take away from the book?
I want girls to know that they can rely on God in any circumstance and that there are promises in the Bible that will make a difference in their lives.
Is there anything else you’d like to tell my readers about you or your book?
Never give up on your dreams! That may sound cliché, but I’m proof that persistence pays off. God’s Promises for Me! is the first book I wrote for kids and my dream of seeing it in print is finally coming true.
Please give us a peek inside the book.
