Sherryl Woods

USA flag (1944 - )

aka Alexandra Kirk, Suzanne Sherrill

Sherryl Woods was born on July 23, 1944 in Arlington, Virginia, U.S.A. Shegraduated from Ohio State University with a degree in Journalism and workedfor several newspapers covering everything from suburban government toentertainment. Eventually specializing in television, she became thetelevision editor for papers in Ohio and Florida. In 1980 she quit her workin news to write books, but again found herself in the workforcecoordinating an employee program for eight thousand people at a major Miamitrauma center. Two years later, her first romance was in print andpublishers were clamoring for more.

When Sherryl's first novel was released in 1982, her former journalistcolleagues spent a lot of time reading the sexy passages that were a far cryfrom the news reporting she had once done. One, shaking his head, turned tothe newspaper's art director and said, "And you've been taking her bowling."But those steamy love scenes aren't the heart of the romance novel, Sherrylreplied. Romances are about so much more. "They're about deep and abidingrelationships, about finding a soul mate, about family and commitment and,yes, of course, about joyous, passionate sex."

By 1986, she was writing full-time. Well over 100 books later, however, thisprolific author still believes that. It is why she continues to love thegenre. In addition to her two popular mystery series and romances for otherpublishers, Sherryl has enjoyed phenomenal success with her books forSilhouette Special Edition, Silhouette Desire and MIRA Books. She feels hernatural talent for writing romance fiction stems in part from her previouswork. "Journalism taught me to be concise and clear as a writer, but it alsotaught me to become a great observer of human nature." Though romances areher first love, this author has also proven adept in the mystery genre. Eachof her fictional sleuths, Molly DeWitt and Amanda Roberts, were optioned fortelevision, which brought Sherryl full circle to the medium she oncecovered.

A member of Novelists, Inc., Sisters in Crime, and Mystery Writers ofAmerica, Sherryl also served as president of the guild for Miami City Balletfor three terms. She currently divides her time between her oceanfront homein Key Biscayne, Florida, and her childhood summer home on the river inColonial Beach, Virginia, where she owns and operates her own bookstore "tokeep in touch with the real people who matter in this business - the readers."
