Sherry Thomas

Sherry arrived on American soil at age thirteen. Within a year, with whatever English she'd scraped together and her trusty English-Chinese dictionary by her side, she was already plowing her way through the 600-page behemoth historical romances of the day. The vocabulary she gleaned from those stories of unquenchable ardor propelled her to great successes on the SAT and the GRE and came in very handy when she turned to writing romances herself.

She lives in Austin, Texas with her husband and two sons. When she's not writing, she enjoys reading, playing computer games with her boys, and reading some more.
