I'm Sherrie R. Cronin, the author of a collection of six speculative fiction novels known as 46. Ascending. These tales of everyday superheroes are about the potential inside us all. My books are in the process of being renamed, edited, and re-released.

One of One is the story of a lifelong empath who must come to terms with her mind-reading tendencies as she becomes the unlikely hero in a rescue mission in Nigeria. It's the story of radically different people learning to understand one another. It was re-released in January 2019 and older versions were called x0.

Shape of Secrets tells of a gay genius with an ability to alter his appearance. He ends up solving a murder in the South Pacific and learning about the importance of finding joy in

For me it's usually that I've been ignoring my physical body for too long, and I need to stop and stretch, drink water, eat, walk, pee or rest. Often I need to do all of them. I get really caught up in trying to get a scene just right, and can find that I haven't moved for hours. That just isn't healthy. It seems to me that writer's block is my way of forcing myself to take a break.
The other time I run into blocks is when I'm trying to write a scene for which I don't have enough background. This happened in z2 when I tried to describe a civil war re-enactment, and finally realized that I didn't know enough about one to write about it! I took a break to do some research, and my husband even attended one nearby and came back with video. Of course then I had the opposite problem. I ended up writing pages describing this reenactment and had to cut the scene way back when I edited my first draft.(less)

In the cleverly titled I know When Youre Going to Die, Michael J Bowler begins with a fascinating premise and delivers a taut and unpredictable tale. I raced through it.

“If you want to change the world, pick up your pen and write.”
Martin Luther

Nelson Mandela

“Real adventure is defined best as a journey from which you may not come back alive, and certainly not as the same person.”
Yvon Chouinard, Let My People Go Surfing: The Education of a Reluctant Businessman

“Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.”
Edmund Burke

“Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from - it’s where you take them to."

[MovieMaker Magazine #53 - Winter, January 22, 2004 ]”

Bob Craton The amount of research that Sherrie does before writing makes those of us who just make things up as we go along look bad.
