About the Author
With her roots firmly planted in the South, Sherryl Woods has written many of her more than one hundred books in that distinctive setting, whether her home state of Virginia, her adopted state, Florida, or her much-adored South Carolina. She s also especially partial to small towns, wherever they may be. With her Chesapeake Shores series, Woods has created a fictional setting on the banks of the Chesapeake Bay, an area not that far from her Virginia home and yet another area dear to her heart. One of her cousins, in fact, was one of the original authors of the Chesapeake Bay Act, designed to preserve this vast estuary. Sherryl is a member of Novelists Inc. and Sisters in Crime. She divides her time between her childhood summer home overlooking the Potomac River in Colonial Beach, Virginia, and her oceanfront home with its lighthouse view in Key Biscayne, Florida. Wherever I am, if there s no water in sight, I get a little antsy, she says. Sherryl also loves hearing from readers.
