Lisa Cherry was born in 1970 in a home for unmarried mothers in Wrexham, UK. A turbulent adolescence of foster homes, children's homes and a 2 year spell of homelessness culminated in an eventual arrival at an AA meeting at the age of 20.
Over twenty years of Sobriety and Recovery, a busy career spent working with young people, families and individuals in distress in a variety of settings led to her writing her first book Soul Journey and then The Brightness of Stars: Stories of Adults Who came Through The British Care System
An international blogger, published author and workshop leader, Lisa Cherry helps beginner writers to remove the emotional blocks that may be preventing them from starting on writing projects.
Lisa works to rebuild confidence that may have diminished over time, helping people arrive at the comfortable place where they can say “I am a writer!” Lisa also provides one-to-one mentoring/coaching and runs national programmes for young people who are or have been in care, working with them to help them make sense of their experiences through the written word and develop abilities to express emotional hurt in a safe, positive and growing way.
Lisa is invited to speak regularly in the UK and in Europe to university students, writers’ groups, business networking events, conferences and women’s groups and has been described as an engaging, inspiring and thought-provoking speaker.
Lisa lives in Oxfordshire with her two children.
