Meet Cherie Marks
Not too long ago, Robyn Peterman and I met in a Romance Writers of America local writer’s group. After devouring her books for years, I’ve become a life-long fan. One magical day, Robyn asked if I’d be interested in writing a story in her Magic and Mayhem Universe. My reaction? Do donuts talk to me? Do teenagers roll their darling eyes? Do shins always find the coffee table in the dark? As a result, along with some other fantabulous authors, I have now released three crazy, wonderful stories. And I continue to dive back in as often as I possibly can.
It all started with an old fashioned typewriter. When my family brought it home, all those stories and characters rolling around in my head could finally get out. The press and click of the keys satisfied in their own right, but when I pulled out a finished page, I knew this was for me. Since then, I’ve graduated to a laptop, but the stories still find a way out.
I’m a breast cancer survivor, a teacher, a wife, a mother, and from the very beginning—a storyteller. Always a hint humorous and honest to a fault, I love to make people laugh and smile. My goal in life is to achieve tact and stop procrastinating. The battle wages on.
