Beverley Scherberger


I knew I wanted to be a writer when my 6th grade English teacher first introduced the class to writing short stories. Many years later, I received a BA in communications from Miami University of Ohio and continued to indulge my love affair with words, resulting in over 220 published non-fiction articles. Since I enjoy reading fiction, I wanted to try my hand at that and now have four novellas ("Saving Serena", "The Problem with Men", "The Accidental Filmmaker", and "Legacy of the Fallen Angel"), and two full-length novels ("STRANDED" and "Savage Isle") available. The movie "The Problem with Men" will be released soon and "The Accidental Filmmaker" is about to be filmed..

An avid scuba diver, my first foray into the world of fiction began with a diving mishap. My imagination took over from there. I enjoy including scuba diving in my stories and love describing the underwater world and the exciting adventures that can take place there.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I do. I was in the sixth grade when our English teacher told us we were going to learn how to write a short story. I remember thinking, "Write a story? I'm just a KID!" However, I found the whole process terribly interesting and exciting. Ever since I'd learned to read, I'd devoured books voraciously -- and now, I was learning how to write something other people would read.

The story was about a 10-year-old boy with a paper route. Everyone in the class had the same topic but, of course, all of the tales were different. I loved it and knew that writing would play an important part in my life.
What do you read for pleasure?
I love psychological dramas, mysteries, thrillers -- anything that makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. I also enjoy stories about animals, but no cruelty or abuse. Only happy endings!

Smashwords book reviews by Beverley Scherberger

  • Lillith on Dec. 15, 2017

    I think I've read all of Carol Buhler's books and Lillith is my favorite character ~ this book is all about HER! She's a reeth (a winged, telepathic horse) that has a great personality, is a force to be reckoned with, and has a big heart. When she makes up her mind about something, everyone should just get out of her way. This often causes problems with her mate and other characters, but she does what she does out of a desire to help. Buhler's knowledge of and love for the animal's shines through as she educates the reader about horses as she entertains. She weaves her stories and develops her characters so skillfully that the reader comes to care about them ~ they become friends. And I love not having to wade through typos and weirdly crafted sentences so prevalent in many self-published books. This is a series well worth reading and if you have yet to visit Gareeth, get thee gone and dive into "Lillith". It's a 5-star journey.
