S. E. BabinSheryl has had a book in her hands pretty much from the time she could hold things with her hands. Her love of reading turned into a curious exploration to see whether or not she could write her own. Beginning with random, terrible poetry and a slightly popular reimagining of Beowulf’s Grendel in her high school English class, Sheryl spent way too much time in the library, killing any chance of her becoming a cheerleader or anything even remotely cool.

When she graduated and college funds were low (more like nonexistent), she enlisted in the military and spent several years doing everything but writing. She managed to find a cute guy who had a job that could afford her expensive book habit and who also appreciated that she embraced her inner geek, so she did what any smart gal would do. She married that guy.

Somewhere in those years she had a few children, pursued several degrees and eventually obtained a few of them. She is a Gemini so that means she has her fingers in all sorts of pies. To outsiders it may look like she is disorganized, but in her own head she is the master of random talents. Sheryl runs one of the largest book clubs in her area where wine is drunk and books are actually discussed.

Her immediate plans are focusing on the release of her first novel, a paranormal mystery where Aphrodite is on the hunt for a stolen relic. Future plans involve world domination and the subsequent destruction of all boxed cake mixes and artificial flavoring. Her fascination with from scratch baking has ruined her husband for other women. After she takes over the world and forces everyone to invest in quality bakeware and real vanilla beans, she believes you’ll eventually thank her.

Sheryl has a fondness for humorous, lighthearted stories but also secretly covets bad-ass leather wearing chicks who curse too much. It helps if they’re funny, too. She writes a little bit of everything but is currently focusing on light paranormal mysteries. She also has a secret squirrel women’s fiction project socked away for a rainy day.
