"The Rime of the BLACKBERRY QUEEN"

A FAIRYTALE of an ORPHANED, BACKWOODS HERMIT who becomes QUEEN of the WHOLE LAND, as imagined by SHERWYN LESLIE

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Once upon a time, when Sherwyn was a teenager, she knew someone who was a voracious romance novel reader. So Sherwyn decided to read one for herself– a random paperback Romance picked from the county library shelf (about a cowboy, she thinks)– to try to determine what all the fuss was about.


You’ve read one, you’ve probably read them all, was Sherwyn’s conclusion upon finishing it. So, with the exceptions of the classics Pride and Prejudice and The Princess Bride, she’d read no romantic fiction, since. (That is, until she was “forced” into a certain trilogy by E. L. James, in late 2012…)


So imagine the irony she felt, when the story of Lou and Ardent (the heroine and hero of THE RIME OF THE BLACKBERRY QUEEN) started forming in Sherwyn’s head, and she wanted to get it down on paper, to see what might happen next!


And Sherwyn figured if their story turns out to be special enough, other people might want to read it too, and tell their friends. And then the book might just see some commercial success.


If best-selling, first-time author Ms. James can do it, I can do it, was Sherwyn’s hope. So she gave it a shot, despite not knowing how her story might stack up– having not read much Romance!


Sherwyn Leslie was born in Oregon, USA, and has spent her adult years, so far, in North Carolina.  While singing is Sherwyn’s first love, she also dabbles in other creative pursuits, such as crafting, fine art, and interior design, in addition to writing.


THE RIME OF THE BLACKBERRY QUEEN is her first novel.
