Cheryl Adnams lives in Adelaide, South Australia. After discovering a love of writing in high school, she went on to complete courses in screenplay writing and a Diploma of Freelance Travel Writing and Photography.
Having travelled extensively, Cheryl lived and worked in the United States, Canada and then for a tour company in Switzerland and Austria. Back home in South Australia now, she has a deep love and pride for the Fleurieu Peninsula and Adelaide Hills regions – particularly the beauty of the beaches and wine region of McLaren Vale.
She attributes Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb for inspiring her to get back into her lifetime love of writing. When she's not writing, Cheryl is avidly reading as many books as she can fit in around her busy full-time job as a training facilitator. Cheryl's latest book Chasing the Flames has just been released.
I first read this at age fourteen and it was the first book I ever really loved. The story of three brothers with really weird names living in a society where the soc’s (rich kids) vs the greasers (poor kids). They fight a daily battle just to survive their stereotypes. It introduced me to Robert Frost who continues to be one of my favourite poets. I can still recite the poem ‘Nothing Gold Can Stay’ which featured in the novel and I can recall word for word the first and last sentence of the book.
