Sherry Thomas: Digging Down to the Emotional Core of Romance

"The books I write are the books I hope to read. I like to read books that are fresh and different, but not so different I don't recognize it for what it is. I love stories about a man and a woman falling in love (or falling in love again). I love complicated characters, sexual tension, and raw emotions. And I love such stories packaged in sparkling prose. That's what I strive for. Have I succeeded? You be the judge. :-)" Sherry Thomas

Sherry Thomas burst onto the romance scene with Private Arrangements, one of the most anticipated debut historical romances in recent history and a Publisher Weekly 2008 Best of the Year book. Lisa Kleypas calls her “the most powerfully original historical romance author working today.” Her books have received stellar reviews from Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, The Chicago Tribune, and Romantic Times, along with enthusiastic praises from many of the most highly trafficked romance review websites and blogs.

Her story is all the more interesting given that English is Sherry's second language--she has come a long way from the days when she made her laborious way through Rosemary Roger's Sweet Savage Love with an English-Chinese dictionary. She enjoys digging down to the emotional core of stories. And when she is not writing, she thinks about the zen and zaniness of her profession, plays computer games with her sons, and reads as many fabulous books as she can find.
