Sherryl Clark Biography (1956-)


Sherryl Clark told SATA: "I have been writing short fiction and poetry for adults for over twenty years. I started writing children's books through the encouragement of a fellow writer in 1996. Since then, I've had more than twenty books published. I am now combining my love of poetry and children's writing into a 'novel in poems' for nine-to-thirteen-year-olds. Farm Kid will be published next year.

"I also teach fiction writing and poetry to adults at TAFE. This helps to keep me interested, inspired, and connected with writers. My women's writing group, Western Women Writers, has been going for twenty years. They are a wonderful source of support and encouragement, and do great critiques!

"I find it useful to set goals—both in writing and getting published—and try hard to achieve them. My current goal is to be published in the U.S. An earlier goal was to create my own web site. It's now up!"
