Cheryl Skory Suma
“Mommy, can you write me a story?”
—Melissa, at age nine
Cheryl always enjoyed making up bedtime stories for her two children, brief tales imagined on the spot to teach and entertain them each night before going to sleep. Then one day, her daughter asked her to write her a ‘longer’ story, and Habitan was born.
Habitan will be a multi-book fantasy-adventure series, and Cheryl promises continued plot twists, surprises and new mysteries along the way, so fans of Habitan, Book 1 should check the Habitan website regularly for updates on the release dates for the next book in the Series! www.HabitanBooks.com
A proud Canadian, Cheryl has a multi-cultural background that includes not only Canadian settlers of various European descent, but also one-quarter Cree Indian/Inuit mix from her maternal grandmother. Her grandmother’s spirit and grace were inspirational to the creation of this story and the use of Cree as the basis for the magical language of Habitan. The scenery and animals behind the story were drawn from the naturally varied and beautiful landscape of Canada.
Cheryl holds an Honors degree in Child Psychology and a Masters of Health Sciences in Speech-Language Pathology, and brings over 30 years experience working with children and youth. Following a successful career, first as a Speech-Language Pathologist, and then as the founder & CEO of a home health care company, Cheryl was able to return to her true love, story telling.
Melissa Suma is Cheryl’s 12 year old daughter. They share a passion for drawing, story telling, music, and the art of ‘listening’. Melissa graciously agreed to provide all of the inside artwork for her mother’s book, as well as the framed drawing for the cover. Melissa is also an accomplished vocalist. She is working on releasing an original album, which will include a song for the Habitan website. Cheryl lives outside Toronto with her husband Peter, son Michael, and daughter Melissa. This book would not exist without all of their love and support.
