Cheryl Norman

Cheryl Norman grew up in Louisville, Kentucky. At the age of 13, she wrote her first mystery, inspired by Trixie Belden stories, in #2 pencil. Although life sidetracked her writing ambitions, she eventually returned to fiction writing and won the 2003 EPPIE award for her contemporary romance, Last Resort. Her debut with Medallion, Restore My Heart, earned her a mention in Publisher's Weekly as one of ten new romance authors to watch.

In addition to romantic mysteries, Cheryl has combined her passion for writing and healthful cooking by publishing three cookbooks. Her favorite activities—jogging, hiking, sewing, cooking, reading, classic car exhibits, and motor home travel—figure prominently in her stories. Having visited all fifty states, plus parts of Canada and Mexico, Cheryl and her husband have settled in northeastern Florida with their spoiled poodle, Ginger. Their modest home is surrounded by pines, oaks, and magnolias, and they’re often visited by deer, raccoon, rabbits, and hawks. It's a perfect writer's retreat.
