Author, lecturer, storyteller. There I was minding my own business when suddenly the voices showed up. I finally have a job I truly love.
On June 4th the National Orphan Train Complex awarded me the Charles Loring Brace award for the historical accuracy within my books. This is truly humbling because, if not for Charles Loring Brace there would not have been a Placing out Program to write about.
Now, I am further honored to be listed on the National Orphan Train Complex Speaker’s Bureau as an approved speaker for my lectures on the Orphan Trains.
During my hour-long presentation, I use an integrated PowerPoint to share the history of the Orphan Trains along with reasons there were so many children in need of a home. I also share some of the stories of the children who rode the trains. I am always open to questions after my presentation and will normally have my books available for purchase. Already own a copy? I’ll be happy to sign them as well.
About Sherry's books
The Orphan Train Saga are clean reads for ages nine and up.
Ezra’s Story, an Orphan Train Extra, is a clean read and can be read on its own or in conjunction with The Orphan Train Saga.
The Jerry McNeal series includes Always Faithful, Ghostly Guidance, Rambling Spirit, Chosen Path, Port Hope, and Cold Case. More books coming in 2022. The books do not have sex, however, there are some swear words.
While Sherry's novel Seems like Yesterday is a clean read, Sherry's other romance titles are not. Tears of Betrayal, Love in the Bluegrass, The King of My Heart, and Somewhere in My Dreams leave little to the imagination when it comes to the bedroom scenes.
Step into the dark with Sherry's Psychological Thriller, Surviving the Storm. While there is humor sprinkled within, this book may have triggers for some.
