SHERRI MATTHEWS

Sherri once worked in the legal and medical fields. When a major life change meant adapting to the role of full-time caregiver for a family member, she got writing, seriously.  Since then, her non-fiction, flash fiction, and poetry are published in magazines and anthologies, as well as her blog. She is thrilled she was shortlisted in this year's Fish Publishing Short Memoir Prize and also received a special mention for Spread The Word Life Writing Prize. Her memoir is about alienation, belonging, and the transformative power of love. As a young mum of three, she emigrated from the UK to California and stayed for twenty years. Today she lives in Somerset with her family and two beautiful black kitties.
