Raised by Nancy Drew and Jane Marple, Alice Munro Short Story Award winner Sherry Isaac's rich storytelling is laced with a pinch of mystery, spiced with a dash of the unexpected and served with a dollop of suspense. Resistant to any one genre, her novels and short stories weave the common thread of everyday life, love and forgiveness into tales that transcend all things, including the grave. Sherry believes in romance, identity and the depth of the human soul. "What doesn't kill us, makes us writers."

Funny, what we learn to live with, even accept and to some extent be blind to, until one day, we just can’t anymore.
