About the author

Cherie Marks

<p>It all started with an old-fashioned typewriter. When the family brought it home, all those stories and characters rolling around in her head could finally get out. The press and click of the keys satisfied in their own right, but when she pulled out a finished page, she knew this was for her. Since then, she&#39;s graduated to a laptop, but the stories still find a way out.<br /> <br /> She&#39;s a breast cancer survivor, a teacher, a wife, a mother, and from the very beginning&mdash;a storyteller. Always a hint humorous and honest to a fault, she loves to make people laugh and smile. Her goal in life is to achieve tact and stop procrastinating. The battle wages on.</p>
