Born and raised in Southern California, Cheryl Bradshaw became interested in writing at a young age. In high school, her poems were selected for publication in a paperback called The Looking Glass. In 2009, Bradshaw wrote her first novel, Black Diamond Death (Sloane Monroe Series). She currently has four novels in the series and will be starting a second series in 2013.
When she is not hard at work writing her next novel, Bradshaw is an avid reader and is especially passionate about vintage novels. “I love a good throwback to another place in time, especially books that make me want to travel and dine with the likes of Mr. Darcy and Hercule Poirot.”
Bradshaw loves to travel and is most fond of locations with historical ties, her favorite being Abraham Lincoln’s birthplace and childhood home. “Each place I visit offers inspiration which I drawfrom when I’m writing,” says Bradshaw, who chose Park City, Utah as the inspiration for the Sloane Monroe Series. “I chose Park City because I lived there and have a fondness for the quaint ski town, which I visit often.” Bradshaw currently resides in Wyoming with her husband and their children.
In August 2012, Bradshaw was named one of Twitter's seven best authors to follow. For information and updates about Cheryl Bradshaw, visit her at www.cherylbradshaw.com, find her on Facebook on her Cheryl Bradshaw Author Page and follow her on Twitter @cherylbradshaw.
