Exercising my Imagination

Hey there. You’ve clicked on my about page, and I’m flattered! My name is Cheri, and I’m an author from Seattle Washington.

I’ve been a book lover my entire life, and for many years writing was my hobby, something I did on the weekends or in the early hours of the morning before work.

I’ve worked as an HR manager, a management consultant, and as a headhunter. My degrees are in business administration and organizational psychology, and I was always fascinated by what made people tick, and the various ways those in power manipulate others to do their bidding. And I explore some of those themes in my fiction.

In 2018 I decided to take my writing more seriously, and in 2019 I left my day job behind. Adventurous Ink is a small family business. I do the writing and marketing, and my husband Patrick handles finance and book production. We make a great team. 😊

I’m a member of Sisters in Crime and the South Seattle Writer’s Group, and when I’m not writing I tend to spend a lot of time reading, watching terrible monster movies, drinking coffee, hanging with my friends, playing Dungeons and Dragons, mouthing off on Twitter, and thinking up murder plots.

These days I live in downtown Seattle in a teeny-tiny studio apartment, close to the waterfront, coffee shops, and the world’s most kickass library. Rainy weather makes me happy, and so does the fact that you visited my website! Thanks so much for supporting my work.
