For author Sherita Bolden, it all began many waterfalls ago (Pisces) when she wrote her first poem at the age of seven about a butcher, a rat and a piece of cheese. It wasn’t until early adulthood when she rekindled her romance with writing and wrote children stories for her first animal (son) Baer. This love affair with the pen eventually blossomed into full blown lust for writing adult fiction.
With many lessons learned from then until now, her latest novel Don’t Touch My Wine: Sometimes all a girl needs is her trusty journal, delicious wine and Max, will be released Feb 24th, 2014.
As a resident of South Bend, IN (go Irish) she honed her writing skills and took a film class at The University of Notre Dame. Not only was she bitten by the writing/film bug, but turned into a writing monster, writing several unpublished works. It wasn’t until she relocated back to her home town of Anderson, South Carolina when she began to seriously pursue her passion for writing.
In 2001 she wrote the feature screenplay The Life Project that placed runner up in the Dream Builders Screenwriting Competition. The screenplay was later produced as a short film in Atlanta Georgia. It was also during this time she entered the classroom, but not for writing. She earned her Associates Degree in Information Technology and Security Management.
With the support and encouragement of her father Marshall Bolden in 2002, she wrote and published the book Been There Once Ain’t Going There Twice: a southern girl’s view on life, love, relationships. He was able to see the completed book a few days before he transitioned into the next life from his battle with lung cancer. For this reason Sherita considers this work to be her Pulitzer Prize.
Today, an unapologetic wine lush with an unquenchable thirst for words, she now writes more passionately than ever and not only does she have one animal (son) Baer to share it with, but she has since added a Tyger and a Wulf.
