Sheryl Sorrentino is the author of five very different novels: Later With Myself: The Misadventures of Millie Moskowitz (which recounts a neglected twelve-year-old’s devastating pregnancy); An Unexpected Exile (a romantic ride with Risa Weinberg, a 29-year old Jewish fashion merchandiser who is relentlessly pursued by a charismatic and slightly "off-kilter" Sandinista rebel); The Floater (the story of 46-year-old Norma Reyes, who gets a rude awakening when her law degree leads her into a den of discrimination and betrayal); Stage Daughter (a page-turning exposé of single-motherhood, blended families, and religious intolerance endorsed by Compulsion Reads and winner of a Finalist slot in the Chick Lit/Women's Lit fiction category of ...more

Before going to bed each night, I roll my laptop into a corner of the living room. When I get up, I quietly fix my coffee (prepped the night before) and write for 3 hours or so, before the morning rush. I love the darkness and the quiet, and the feeling that I am accomplishing something while the rest of the world (in my time zone, anyhow) sleeps. Thank you for asking!(less)

Gripping story; phenomenal writing. Despite the fact that (1) we know who was murdered and whodunnit from the very beginning, and (2) the characters are all fairly odious, I was hooked and couldn't put this down.

“If you don't feel you are possibly on the edge of humiliating yourself, of losing control of the whole thing, then what you're doing probably isn't very vital.

If you don't feel that you are writing somewhat over your head, why do it? If you don't have some doubt of your authority to tell this story, then you're not trying to tell enough.”
John Irving

Sheryl Sorrentino Sure! I'm curious how you found me--are you familiar with my novels?


Christine Hatfield thanks for being my friend


Sheryl Sorrentino Awesome! Honestly, it was a bit difficult for me to put this story "out there," for the obvious reasons. But I'm thrilled to hear that you found it inspirational, because that is precisely the reaction I hope readers will have! I do worry that readers will get turned off by the prologue and (very inappropriate) sexual activity. But, alas, that is the ugly side of the story (or one aspect of it) that I felt needed to be told.

Just out of curiosity, may I ask how many members are in your club, and when you bought the book?

Best to you, Jamie. And thanks again!

Sheryl Sorrentino

Jamie Hi Sheryl! It appears a few non-family members have read your book :) I selected this book for my bookclub. I can't recall how I came across it, but it was very inspirational and provided some excellent talking points (particularly given that my bookclub is all new mothers). Thanks for sharing your story!


Leslie Thanks Sheryl, for asking me to be your friend. I'm in a bit of money crunch right now, but I will remember your offer. In the meantime, I'm looking forward to reading your reviews!
