Interview with the One and Only Sheri Williams

Today, y’all, I would like to introduce you to one of the greatest people I know. Her name is Sheri Williams and you may remember I told you she was my book and project manager for The Devil Within. Well, she’s also an awesome writer, and I wanted you all to learn a bit more about her!

So here she is:

First off, Sheri, tell us a little bit about yourself and your background?

Hey there, I’m Sheri. A yankee living in the South. A wife, a mom, a nerd and a writer.  I am overly obsessed with BBC tv, the color blue, all things Alice in Wonderland. I live with my DH, two daughters, two cats and a tiny doxie who thinks she’s a doberman. All in a tiny house with only one bathroom. I write because it keeps me sane. (sometimes.)

What have you written?

Oh many things. I’ve written one solo and one collaborative effort Pick Your Path to Romance stories for SilkWords. I wrote one novel, Mad Magic, and a few shorts that have been published in Anthologies for my writing group The Writing Wenches.

What are you working on right now?

Um…you want one, or all? I have, in the pipeline a gothic horror, a contemp romance short, a paranormal short, another PYPtR for SilkWords, a serial for my new Booktrope Imprint Forsaken, and a Mid Grade Fantasy for the Booktrope Imprint UPDrift & UPRush.

Do you stick to one genre or do you write ideas as they come to you?

I am a genre ho. I can’t stick to one.

What’s your favorite genre to write?

A year ago I would have said romance, right now it’s fantasy. Fantasy horror, high fantasy, fantasy kids. I love it all.

How long have you been writing?

On and off all my life. But I just allowed myself to take it seriously last year.

What draws you to writing?

It just speaks to me. The voices in my head need to go somewhere, right?

How often do you write?

I try to write every day, but life gets in the way sometimes.

Do you draw from your own experiences when you write, or do you rely only on your imagination?

It’s really a mixture of both. Though you will find a Doctor Who reference in most everything I write. Cause I’m a geek that way.

What’s your writing environment like? Do you listen to music when you write?

I wear headphones and listen to Amazon Prime music. I generally write in the evenings on the couch while my DH plays Call of Duty 🙂

What books have you published?

Mad Magic: The Untold Story of the Mad Hatter

A Crisis of Love – SilkWorlds

Gingerbread Dreams – SilkWords

Unwrapping Love:A Writing Wenches Anthology

What are your favorite books?

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

Bet Me

The Alchemist

What authors inspire you?

Neil Gaiman

Alice Hoffman

What’s your favorite music?

Oh that I can’t pick. I love it all. It changes from mood to day, and everything in between.

Tell me a funny story about you I can’t find elsewhere.

I once got so drunk in a bowling alley that I totally flung myself down the lane.
