Sher Davidson

I was born in Oakland, California on April 21, 1942 and grew up there before going to 
College at the University of California, Berkeley from 1959-63 when I graduated with
a degree in Political Science and French. My first job was in France working for the US Army 
Special Services. After two wonderful years there, I returned to San Francisco, California where I started my graduate studies at SF State to earn a secondary teaching credential. Then I married and developed a jewelry design business. My husband, two daughters and I moved to Portland, Oregon in 1977. After selling my jewelry business, Sher Designer Jewelry, in 1988, I returned to college, Portland State University, where I earned a degree in Fine Arts. I then taught art, painting, drawing and printmaking in the “artists-in-the schools” program, Young Audiences, until 2012.  I continued to show my art for the next several years. I have had a wonderfully varied professional life.

In 2011 I moved with my husband to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, a community of writers and artists, where we bought a house. We were sad to sell it during the pandemic in July of 2021. We now live in a beautiful suburb of Portland, Oregon, near the Willamette River where we love to kayak and enjoy being near our daughters and grandchildren. 

I wrote my first book in 1973, Europe with Two Kids and A Van, published by 101 Productions in San Francisco and distributed by Charles Scribner’s Sons, NY. I had to set aside my writing career as I supported my husband’s return to grad school and raised two little girls. My jewelry career flourished and helped us with our living expenses. In the year 2000 I began to take workshops in writing in Oregon and more in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico at the famous annual International Writers Conferences and ultimately, realized how much I love to write. My first novel was published in 2014, Under the Salvadoran Sun, a late-in-life love story wrapped around the issue of immigration.  I have several other books and short stories up my sleeve.
