As we finish 2010, I’m pleased to present our final guest of the year… Sherry Thompson. Her’s is a truly inspiring story of faith and persistence. Though I must caution you… her tale is not one of the glamorous rise to stardom that aspiring authors imagine. Her tale represents the more realistic aspect of working your tail off to accomplish something you feel God has led you to do. It’s about hard work and perseverance, a rare commodity in today’s microwave society. Having your novel published is not “automatic,” as Sherry will tell you.
Sherry Thompson is the author of the YA fantasy books Seabird and Earthbow, both published by Gryphonwood Press. She has a BAAS from the University of Delaware, where she worked as a Librarian for thirty-five years. Since retiring, she has finally been able to live the dream of being a full-time author, by participating in writing groups, conferences, and seeing the publication of her long belabored fantasy series.
