Janice: How long have you been writing and how did you come to it?

CHERYL:  It started around the time I was 5 years old. I wrote a play based on my Winnie the Pooh lunch box and we acted it out for neighborhood kids. I was always writing plays and short stories. I wrote about 10 plays the year I was fifteen. Well, that’s what I called them. I didn’t realize they were actually screenplays. (Too many locations to be on a stage.)

My mom, Holly Carney, is the author of a children’s book titled Not All Stepmothers Are Wicked. It’s a great book and she plans to write more in order to create a series. Do you have any advice for spreading such strong, kind values in times like today? I’m sure we could all use it- especially my mom. Thanks!!

What’s great about these days is we can get our message out there in a variety of ways from traditional or self publishing and she can continue to do that with other messages. I feel it’s best to tell the truth or write what you believe and hope it will find an audience, rather than trying to tailor to what people normally accept or choose. I’d rather be passionate about my message and believe in it than trying to cater to what I think people can accept. I hope she keeps at it!
