Sherry Wood grew up in The South, but it was when she moved to Chicago that she began to write novels. She experienced the darker side of Boys Town, falling in love with a male prostitute. Her first novel Everyone Is Chuckers is based on exactly that. She has since written 20 more books, including the paranormal thriller, Suzanne Degnan. She also wrote the novella Little Gold Chain in 48 hours, during Hurricane Sandy, and revised and edited it in one week. The Scorpion, her most popular eBook, is now a series.
