Cheryl Norman grew up in Louisville, Kentucky. At the age of 13, she wrote her first mystery, inspired by Trixie Belden stories, in #2 pencil.
Although life sidetracked her writing ambitions, she eventually returned to fiction writing and won the 2003 EPIC award for best contemporary romance (Last Resort). She's established herself as an author of light romantic suspense stories that keep you on the edge without too much edge.
Cheryl has combined her passion for writing and healthful cooking by publishing four cookbooks. Her favorite activities— walking, sewing, cooking, reading, classic cars, and motor home travel—figure prominently in her stories.
A survivor of breast cancer, Cheryl also participates in events to raise money and awareness for the American Cancer Society.
Having visited all fifty states, plus parts of Canada and Mexico, she and her husband have settled in northeastern Florida (quite near her fictional Drake Springs) with their spoiled poodle. Their modest home is surrounded by pines, oaks, and magnolias, and they’re often visited by deer, raccoon, rabbits, and hawks. It's a perfect writers retreat.
