Sherry was born in Denver, Colorado.

At the age of seven, she won a cheeseburger in the Little Miss Colorado Pageant. It wasn't exactly the crown she had hoped for, but it did teach her that there are, different measures for success. She learned that the show must go on and that laughter and tears are two sides of the same valuable coin.
Early on music, television, and movies captured her attention. Lucy and Ethel were her role models and the rhythm of Dr. Seuss resonated with her. Dorothy from Oz was a mentor in her life and Over the Rainbow, is her favorite song.

They raised Sherry and her sister Sandy to be of service to others and believed the Golden Rule never fails. This philosophy was passed on to her own two children.
Her son Bobby Peterson is a writer in Los Angeles and her daughter Kimberlee Peterson, is an actress/photographer.
They were encouraged to be authentic, to find their own voice and the precious power of imagination.
On a personal level, her children and grandchildren are her gold medals in life.
The conclusion that she has arrived at, is this: She prepared her whole life to write, rewrite, and then write some more. If life hands you lemons, or in her case cheeseburgers, you remain grateful and stay inspired. She knows that it's ok to color outside of the lines and that we all don't fit into the same box.
