Hello there! I’m Sheryl.
This site is about my writing life, and it’s where I’ll announce and launch new books.
I have written most of my life, and my first paid feature was in New Musical Express, when I was 17. I was editor of The Face magazine and The Observer Life, and I’ve freelanced for most of the UK’s national newspapers and magazines.
My next book will be a collection of my music journalism, which runs from Rock Against Racism and the 2 Tone and reggae of my native Birmingham through to Lover’s Rock and one of the first features about Chicago house music and interviews with everyone from Madonna and Kylie to REM and Robbie Williams.
I’m also working on a whole series of new books about creativity, freelancing, working from home and all of the challenges contemporary creatives face. This has grown out of my work coaching creatives.
More about that at my other site, The Creative Life.
