Cher Smith

Biography

Cher Smith began her writing career when she was eight years old, folding over notebook paper to look like a book. While her novel "Lazy Bones" was never finished, she never lost the love of creating characters and placing them in awkward, mysterious, dangerous or romantic situations, sometimes all at once.

She has a master's degree in philosophy of religion and taught philosophy and English for a few years. She has been in marketing and publishing for most of her adult career and designs and maintains websites in her spare time.

Her first published novel, The Falcon and the Serpent (1990), fell in the fantasy genre, but her writing career has grown considerably beyond that single genre into more contemporary and literary works, including Justified Means, a quirky comedy-drama that follows a pastor’s wife along a Robin Hood-like adventure. She has published numerous articles, including three entries for The St. James Encyclopedia of Popular Culture (the television show Home Improvement, the Coors mystique, and Playgirl magazine), movie reviews for Infuze Magazine and several feature stories for Colorado Country Life magazine. She also co-authored a nonfiction book about the changing demographics in America.

Cher Smith is the founder, editor and chief instigator at Dead Key Publishing. It is her desire to bring novels -- hers and others -- to readers who love books.
