As an elementary school teacher, Cheryl knows the importance

of surrounding children with stories that inspire, comfort,

and encourage them to explore the everyday magic of the

world around them.  These are the types of stories

she wants to bring into the world.


Cheryl is a 2020 Scholarship winner for Julie Hedlund's 12x12 Picture Book Challenge, a member of SCBWI, and

the Topanga Writers and Pen-Ultimate Critique Groups.

She have also been a Pre-K - 3rd grade

 teacher for the past 13 years.  

Her inspiration comes from working with children,

walks in nature and random flights of fancy. She has

several completed manuscripts for children ages 0-3 and for children ages 4-8 available upon request.
