Cheryl Wright

Melbourne, Victoria

I am a multi award-winning Australian author who spent thirteen years contracted by traditional publishers. At the beginning of 2017, I decided it was time to self-publish.
This has allowed me to step out of my comfort zone, and to write books I want to write, and believe my readers would like to read.
I write mostly romantic suspense, but have plans to expand into other genres as well.
I’ve taught writing for many years, and have written several non-fiction books about writing. I’ve worked as an editor for publishers, coached writers one-on-one, and have appeared at writer's conferences in Australia and New Zealand.
I have been married to my own real-life hero for 42 years. We have two grown children, and six grandchildren.
Our household would not be complete without our wonderful pets, which includes two elderly cats and our beautiful dog Bindy, who loves long, leisurely walks. We are also fostering a puppy, who will ultimately go to an Autism school.
My hobbies are tenpin bowling and papercrafts, and surprisingly, going to the gym.
