Have you ever ridden a horse and experienced that rush of
being totally out of control when the horse decides she
knows you have no experience and takes off for parts
Cheryl has and says it is certainly a rush knowing that
the saying of not having any horse sense is actually true
in her case!
Loving every aspect of life, Cheryl decided when her son
was four to start writing. With over 15 books out, life
certainly hasn't slowed. She is currently taking horseback
riding lessons with her daughter, going to the cross
country games of her son, and despite her MS she takes
time to work out at the gym, swim and is back in college.
Of horse riding lessons, she says it's one of the best
things they have done as a family. Her husband loves to
take videos and laugh as she bounces around the arena and
she is laughing right along with him.
"You have to laugh at life, or you'll end up taking
yourself too seriously," she says.
Cheryl also teaches four- and five-year-olds in Sunday
school and has a great time doing it. She says children
are a wonderful treasure, and she can't wait until she's a
grandma one day!
What does she do in her spare time? She laughs and says
she enjoys the Arts and Science Center and will probably
be there every weekend when the Planetarium finally opens!
She also enjoys going to movies. Asking if you can be
addicted to movies, she grins and continues that she loves
The Lord of the Rings movies and The Matrix
and any of the old movies, especially the musicals!
And she also plays the piano and wants to learn pottery.
She also speaks a bit of Spanish and can certainly read
it, so hopes that eventually her books will hit Latin
Spare time? Smiling she says there really isn't such a
thing as spare time when you have a family.
Be sure to pick up one of Cheryl's books and check out her
sense of humor and her love of life between the pages.
