Cheryl was raised in DeQueen, Arkansas but spent her adult years in Texas. She has been drawing, painting and writing for as long as she can remember. But as she got older, her love of writing seemed to eclipse all other interests. She recently completed one novel , a solo book outside of the rose series, which is pending publication and is working on several others. But her true passion is the ministry she and her brother have begun with The Last Rose project. Cheryl loves to read and her favorite Christian authors are Ted Dekker, Frank Peretti, Tim Lahaye and Jerry B. Jenkins.
