Author Spotlight with Cheryl Mackey

Cheryl Mackey

Cheryl lives in Southern California with her adorable hubby and 2 sons. She has a MFA in Creative Writing and enjoy games, reading and, of course, writing. She grows tall bearded irises and avidly listens to trailer music by groups like Audiomachine, Two Steps from Hell, and Future World Music. 
Cheryl’s favorite genre to write and read is YA Fantasy closely followed by YA Scifi and she would love to dabble in Steam Punk and Dystopian.

She has been writing since she was 13, using her mother’s dinosaur of a typewriter (it was from the fifties I think!) and her father’s special resume paper (without his knowledge).  Those stories are long gone, but her brain never sleeps without coming up with new ideas.
