Meet Idaho Author Sherry Briscoe

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ March 31, 2014

Well, life is busy, but I'd been a member of the Idaho Writers' Guild (http://idahowritersguild.com/)    for  a whole year and hadn't been to a meeting yet. Every month I would recieve notice of the time and place— always a luncheon at a local restaurant— and I would put it on my calendar. And then not get there.

Finally it was time to renew my membership for another year. In other words, fish or cut bait. I decided to fish and was delighted with the professional approach to writing, the excellent speakers and the delightful people I met. So I renewed and went back the next month.

And there, one of the writers I was especially pleased to meet up with was  Sherry Briscoe, so I invited Sherry to visit us on "Deeds of Darkness; Deeds of Light". Welcome, Sherry.

 

Sherry: Donna, it was a great pleasure of mine to meet you at the Idaho Writers Guild luncheon; I do hope to see you there more often! And I must say that I am so honored to be invited to post on your blog – thank you!
 
Donna: You're very welcome, Sherry. And you'll definitely be seeing me at more IWG luncheons. Now, tell us about your book the Mists of Garibaldi.
 
Sherry: I lived in Garibaldi, Oregon, in the early 80’s, where I worked for the small weekly newspaper, the Headlight Herald. In the 90’s, I moved back home to Idaho and worked for The Times-News in Twin Falls. So it’s no surpise that these stories developed the way they did. In the nine short stories that are the Mists of Garibaldi, the reader will see how lives and stories in a small community are connected, and overlap. They will also learn that nothing is what it seems in the small coastal town of Garibaldi.
 
Donna: Aha! You've got my interest. I love suspense. But I understand Mists of Garibaldi also contains elements of the paranormal.
 
Sherry: That's true. From dragons to ghosts, curses to murder, these nine stories will trap the reader in their web, and haunt them from the first word to the last.
 
Donna: Okay, we've been warned. It sounds like a truly great read, Sherry. I've spent considerable time on the Oregon coast and I know what an atmospheric place it can be. Especially after dark with the mist rolling in from the ocean. . .
 
“Meet the people of Garibaldi…and the ghosts and the other things that go bump in the night…in this fabulous collection of short stories by Sherry Briscoe. The supernatural chills and thrills in the Mists of Garibaldi will enchant and wow you. Highly recommended.” ~ Joanne Pense, USA Today bestselling author of One O’Clock Hustle
 
Find out more about Sherry Briscoe on www.sherrybriscoe.com .  Board member of the Idaho Writers Guild, past member of the Idaho Media Professionals, Camera Club of Eagle, Reel Women of the West, Idaho Screenwriters Association, and many other groups where creative minds come together, Sherry is also a proud veteran of the U.S. Army.

Mists of Garibaldi is available in print and ebook: http://j.mp/Qzqs3j

Thank you again for visiting us, Sherry. Now I wish I'd asked you about your Army career, too. I have a son in the Army Reserve and one in the Air Force Reserve and a grandson in the Army serving in Afghanistan.

What fun, getting to guest blog on your website, Donna, is like being on the TONIGHT SHOW!
I joined the Army because, at the time, they were having guarantees of station, and I wanted to go to Europe. So I signed the papers and off I went. It was like stepping into a fairy tale book of castles and kings!
-SherryBriscoe, April 1, 2014

Fantastic, Sherry! Where were you posted? Sounds like Germany.
-Donna, April 2, 2014

I was stationed in Nuernburg Germany. A beautiful city in the state of Bavaria, which is southern Germany, not far from Munich.
-SherryBriscoe, April 3, 2014

Lovely, Sherry. I traveled through Germany on a study tour many, many years ago, but we didn't get to Nuermburg. I'll be looking for a story set in Germany from you.
-Donna, April 4, 2014

Fascinating interview! I edited some of the stories (they're great fun) and wondered where Sherry found her inspiration.
Thanks for bringing Sherry to us, Donna. I hope we'll meet up one of these days at IWG or Partners in Crime!

Sherry is certainly charismatic and so is her writing. I just finished her book & thoroughly enjoyed it! I will be posting a review on amazon this week.
-Rochelle Cunningham, April 14, 2014

Kathy, thank you for stopping by. I'll be at IWG tomorrow. So glad to know of your input for Sherry's book

Great,Rochelle! Amazon reviews are like gold dust. We'll be looking for it.
