Sherrie Petersen Books

I was born in Ohio, grew up in Southern California and spent the first half of my married life in Arizona. I've visited most of the continental United States (only 9 states left to discover!) but I'm really looking forward to the day when I can visit the moon.

An avid reader since I memorized Hand, Hand, Fingers, Thumb by Dr. Seuss, I still enjoy reading and writing books like the ones I enjoyed as a child. My favorite authors are Suzanne Collins, Rick Riordan, J.K. Rowling, Maggie Stiefvater, Jennifer Nielsen, John Green, Eoin Colfer and Anthony Horowitz. When I grow up, I want to write just like them.

In addition to writing middle grade novels, I moonlight as a graphic designer, substitute teacher, freelance writer, school newspaper advisor, yearbook advisor and mother of two children. I spend my free time reading, watching Dr. Who and baking cookies.

My debut novel, WISH YOU WEREN’T, released March 17, 2014.
