Sherrie A. Bakelar

Sherrie A. Bakelar


One of those feral Gen Xers, Sherrie A. Bakelar was raised in the 1980s. She spent hours hiking in the nearby mountains, catching tadpoles in the canal, and stealing peaches from local farms. Early on, she hated reading, but once she’d gained enough skill to read fluently, she fell in love with novels. Through the next decade, she spent the majority of her spare time reading every book she could lay eyes on. 

Her childhood favorites included The Boxcar Children, The Three Investigators, The Chronicles of Narnia, and The Black Stallion series. In addition to classics such as The Wind in the Willows, Little House on the Prairie, and Alice in Wonderland, as a pre-teen, Sherrie moved on to read the works of Stephen King, Piers Anthony, Jane Yolan, Anne McCaffrey, and Robert Asprin. In her later teen years, she branched out to explore the works of science fiction greats such as Isaac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, and Larry Niven, along with other early authors of speculative fiction such as Edgar Rice Burroughs.  Today, she spends time reading stories from fellow indie authors along with nonfiction works on psychology, sociology, cosmology, and history.

Sherrie often tells people the only thing she excels at is going to school. She has an advanced degree in history and a second degree in Education. She currently works as a special education teacher for her local school district, teaching young students in crisis.

Sherrie lives with her family and friends near where she grew up. Although the peach farms and canal are long gone, the mountains remain.
