Sherry Schwarcz

Biography

Sherry Schwarcz presently lives in Austria with her diplomat husband. She holds a BS in Secondary Education from UNLV and a MA English from CSUH. For over 18 years, Sherry taught teens in the United States and Germany. She presently teaches online while raising two rare Taigan sighthounds when she isn't writing. Sherry blogs about her dog at www.dashadiary.weebly.com, which has hosted hundreds of curious visitors.

After a sermon when the pastor asked congregants what they would do if they knew they couldn't fail because it was for the glory of God, Confess was conceived and drawn from experience. Intrigued by the secular and Christian definitions of confession, witness, and testify, Sherry has written a teaching guide to accompany the novel complete with vocabulary, discussion topics and final projects. She has also compiled a 40-day Bible study based on the leading Bible passages at the beginning of each chapter.
