Sherrie McCarthy

Biography

An avid reader, traveller and writer, I wrote my first book at ten years old, and promptly destroyed it a month later when my classmates refused to stop talking about it. It suggested a temperament that might be counter productive to my declared dream of becoming a published author.

I teach English to support my travel habit, and I am replacing teaching with writing.

When I am not writing a book, I am blogging or writing my Chasing Summer column:
