Australian-born Sherryl Caulfield is a marketer, writer and traveller. After twenty years working for some of the world’s leading technology brands and a stint with Outward Bound, she longed to write about the human experience and the redemptive qualities of nature.
In 2006, haunted by an encounter with a woman she met in Canada, Sherryl started what has now become known as The Iceberg Trilogy. From her home in the Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand, she distilled the lives of three generations of women – Rebecca, Evangelene and Lindsay – over the course of a century.
In the telling of their stories she crafted a series rich in landscapes – of sea, land and the human soul. Adventures have been central to her life: climbing Mt Kinabalu in Sabah, trekking to the base camp of Makalu in the Himalayas; and paddling the classic Bowron Lakes canoe circuit in British Columbia, a location that features in two of her novels.
Her formative years were spent on a farm in Cedar Pocket, in South-East Queensland, once home to large stands of one of Australia’s few native deciduous trees, the Red Cedar. Now residing in Brisbane, Sherryl is a partner in marketing agency, Action Communications, and winner of a Gold Serif from The Australian Society of Business Communicators.

Out of Tune
on Jan. 07, 2014
Out of Tune took me inside the world of American country music seen through the eyes of a young woman at a crossroads in her life. Twenty year old Maggie Roads has spent years touring the circuit, living under her parents shadow, depressed by her inability to sustain a song, yet so desperately wanting for music to be front and centre of her life. And into that turmoil comes more hurdles and setbacks and temptations and the realisation that her parents could have been considerably more supportive.
What I loved about this book is the original storyline and the surprises that kept on coming. I had no idea how the love triangle was going to work itself out – I still would like to read more anon on this Michelle - if you are reading this! ☺ But ultimately this is a story about a very modern girl who could have made some bad choices for herself but didn’t. The way she was her own best-friend, honest and considered rather than inpulsive and regretful was a wonderful example for others who might be tempted to dive into relationships, ignoring all the waming bells and confusion of their heart. And through testing the waters and being honest with herself, she found her true north along with her true love.
“Nathan you can call me Mags” – just love the acceptance of this line. I don’t read a lot of the Young Adult genre so don’t know how this compares with other stories out there, however for me in terms of my other reads I would give it 3.5 stars.
