Please welcome author Cheryllynn Dyess who brings us her paranormal fantasy, Born of The Veil!
How do you take your coffee, Cheryllynn?
CD: With coconut sugar and Irish Cream creamer!!!
Ally: Perfect. While I prepare our drinks, why don't you introduce yourself to our readers?
Cheryllynn's vivid imagination comes through in all she does in life. Her writing started in junior high and although she never truly shared her work until recently, she kept them hidden away in an old tattered orange folder. Original works she wrote from 1984 still holding ink on the pages are now being shared. Science Fiction and Fantasy are her favorite genres with mystery and thrillers in close running.
Born in Northwest Florida and raised in Southeast Georgia she gained a love for nature and the outdoors. After almost twenty years in the health care industry and obtaining her Bachelors of Science in Healthcare Administration/Healthcare Information Systems she has returned to her love of writing. Currently living in Central Texas with two of her three children, she has begun a new chapter in life that has opened her heart and soul to many great adventures. Her dreams are to one day return to her native homes and settle in for life with her kids and all her family and to continue writing.
And something unusual: In school I played the trombone, loved it! Not many people think of me playing that instrument.
