Raised by Nancy Drew and Miss Marple, Sherry Isaac’s rich storytelling is laced with a pinch of mystery, spiced with a dash of the unexpected, and served with a dollop of suspense. Her novels and short stories feature heroines who, like wildflowers, appear fragile, yet thrive in the harshest conditions. Sherry weaves love, life and forgiveness into tales that transcend all obstacles, including the grave.
The Forgetting earned the Alice Munro Short Story Award in 2009. In 2010 her novel, Homecoming, earned Honorable Mention in the Georgia Romance Writers’ Maggie. That same year, the Heart of Denver’s Molly contest declared her heroine, Hannah Marsh, ‘Unsinkable’.
Sherry believes in romance, identity, and the depth of the human soul. What doesn't kill us, makes us writers.

ASherry Isaac hooked me with her lyrical voice and talent for character and scene development when I purchased and read her first Indie ePub, WHAT YOU WISH FOR.
This release snatched me on-scene from the first paragraph forward. I was in the character's head and emotionally invested through Sherry's talent for bringing the reader into the home where the story unfolds. She used fresh images, and non-cliché attention to detail. I was there. I could smell, hear, feel what the protagonist felt.
The ending? A non-predictable twist. I won't resort to spoilers. Buy the story and follow this author. She has a series of short stories to release. MEGA talented, and I understand (from her blog) that proceeds from her next release will be donated to Habitat for Humanity. Big heart matches her talent.
