About this author

Sherry Thomas writes both historical romance and young adult fantasy.

On the romance side, she is one of the most acclaimed authors working in the genre today, her books regularly receiving starred reviews and best-of-the-year honors from trade publications. She is also a two-time winner of Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA Award.

On the young adult fantasy side, there isn't much to say yet, as her debut book is not scheduled for publication until September 2013.

Sherry writes in her second language. She learned English by reading lots of romance and science fiction--every word Isaac Asimov ever wrote, in fact. She is proud to say that her son is her biggest fanboy--for the YA fantasy, not the romances. At least, not yet...

I will, but this doesn't mean I will sign any more contracts writing historicals--my next contract with Berkley is for historical mysteries.

The last eight historical romances I'd written--out of the nine published--had all been kind of under pretty intense time pressure. I'll admit, there were some plots I wasn't proud of--amnesia, anyone?--but used out of desperation because two characters and sexy banter do not a book make, damn it.

So I don't want to commit myself to writing historical romances ahead of time. I want them to come to me organically. There is this WWI novella already brewing in my head and I am kind of chomping at the bits to try it. We'll see how that goes.(less)
Sherry Thomas I have just this moment finished THE IMMORTAL SEA. It will be published October 13 of this year, iirc.

Here’s what I wrote in a private-group Facebook post almost exactly a month ago:


I woke up this morning wondering if I’d ever have another experience as wonderful as writing my little contemporary. It has been a joy, almost a euphoria, every step of the way.

Jenny,

Think about how fast 2010 disappeared. 2012 will be here before you know it. :-)

And to everyone else who left comments,

I'm so sorry. I had no idea folks were leaving comments on my profile--until my husband changed the settings on GoodReads for new comments etc to show up in my inbox earlier this year. Thank you for all your kind words and happy reading!
