Today I am sitting down with Science Fantasy author Cheryl Mackey. We are not only going to talk about her books, but also her life in general. Do you want to get to know her? I sure do…
Tell us about yourself?
My name is Cheryl Mackey. I am a wife of 19 years and a mother of 2 teenage boys. I’ve been an avid reader and writer since age 6 (you can imagine the garbage I wrote at that age!)
What genre do you write? Why?
I write science fantasy which is fantasy with threads of science fiction woven within. I enjoy creating fantastical worlds to fill with interesting creatures, people, cultures, and concepts!
Do you have any pets?
I currently do not, which makes me sad.
What is your favorite hobby?
Aside from reading? I enjoy cross stitching!
If you could be one person who would it be?
I would like to be a musician or singer, but alas I am tone deaf!
Do you like to write with a pen and paper or computer?
I prefer to write on my computer. Too much to revise to use erasers or white out!
What do you have in the works right now?
I have currently just begun writing book 4 of The Immortals.
Tell us an interesting fact about the world your books revolve around.
The world in my book series, The Immortals, involves arrogant gods who created The Immortals to fight their battles for Them. They did this by cruelly ripping mortals from their lives and reincarnating them as powerful, magical, warriors. The problem? The Immortals only have immortal souls, not bodies and every time they reincarnate…they lose their memories.
What should we expect from you in the coming months?
I look to provide updates on the final book of The Immortals as I write, through my newsletter and social media.
Do you have any special closing statement you would like to share with your fans?
Thank you so much for joining me on my journey with The Immortals. I appreciate all of my fans!
