After uncovering the mystery behind her uncle’s death in WWII, Sherry was inspired to tell the tales of the men on the HMCS Athabaskan and later the tales of the extraordinary women behind the scenes in WWII.

As her interest in writing evolved, Sherry was inspired to try her hand at fiction. Her first project was a children’s book followed by two historical fictions awaiting publication.
