Living in Western Canada with her family, Sheri-Lynn surprised more than a few people when she decided to write a book. Having grown up riding and working with racehorses, drawing and selling animal artwork, it was a big change. Sheri-Lynn fell in love with reading at age twelve when she read The Black Stallion series by Walter Farley. One day, after nearly tossing an unsatisfying book out the window, Sheri-Lynn decided to write her own. Inspired by her favorite authors who write paranormal romance with large casts of characters, and multiple POV's, Jax, Sami and Tierney came to life in Sheri-Lynn's mind. The Dracones were born, and Sheri-Lynn never looked back.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Calgary, Alberta. I learned early on that I'd have to work for what I wanted. At eleven years old I wanted a horse. My dad told me "When you have the money to buy one, you can buy one." So I worked for a year babysitting after school and then bought my first horse. That lesson has stayed with me. I wanted to work with racehorses, so I did. I decided seven years ago to write a book and while it has taken awhile, due to kids and life, I did it as well. Never be afraid to dream big, and go for it.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Yes, I was twelve years old and in grade six. We had to read a book. As a horse crazy kid, I choose Walter Farley's 'The Black stallion'. After that I was hooked on reading.
