Sherry Peters has lived most of her life in Winnipeg, Canada. She’s been writing stories from the time she held her first pencil. It was after reading L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables that Sherry knew she was destined to be a writer. Her first “chapter books” ranged in subject matter from the hijacking of the Space Shuttle to the re-animation of millions of dinosaur skeletons.
Childhood family vacations across North America stirred wanderlust and a desire for adventure. Among the trips that have had the most impact on her life and her writing was the year she spent living and working in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Her writing adventures include attending the Odyssey Writing Workshop and earning an M.A. in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University.
Her debut novel Mabel the Lovelorn Dwarf placed first in the 2014 Writer’s Digest Self-Publsihed e-Book awards for Middle Grade/YA, and was a nominee for the 2015 Aurora Award for best YA Novel.
