Cheryl Pastor


I have been writing and drawing since the tender age of 8 years old. I love the written word and how it can transform lives for the better.

I studied English at Marygrove College in Detroit with Fine Art as my minor. I have had numerous poems and prose published in newspapers and various anthologies, i.e. Adam of Ife, Black Women in Praise of Black Men,(Lotus Press,1992), Inner Visions of the People; A Poetry Anthology (Detroit Black Writers Guild, 1994), the Michigan Chronicle, the Michigan Citizen, and the Detroit Free Press.

I am currently in the process of writing my first novel and rolling around script ideas in my head.
