Sheri J. Kennedy thrives on creating. She’s a visual artist, photographer and writer. Five of her novels are published and she's always working on the next one. Philosophy, literature and communications studies gave her a B.A. in Humanities. But she's more interested in studying life. Thoughtful curiosity influences all of her pursuits. Sheri lives with her husband in a small house on the banks of the Snoqualmie River in the mountains near Seattle, Washington.

Fun FACTS

The first fun fact is I’ve got an artist crush on Matthew Inman, aka The Oatmeal. Not so much on his potty-mouth, potty-jokes, but on his curious mind and generous creative spirit. He’s awesome. He not only wonders about cool stuff, he takes the time to research it, draw it, and share it with the world.

Here’s the second fun fact… courtesy of The Oatmeal (CLICK PHOTO TO LEARN THIS FUN FACT… AND A FEW MORE WITH AWESOME ILLUSTRATIONS AND FLAIR.)

Allies and Spies

Trust is as thin as a blade’s edge. Secrets abound. And no one is who they seem. Kalann il Drakk, the First of Chaos, makes a bargain with his brethren, in which the future of civilization hangs in the balance.

Thrust together by a sacred oath, a halfbreed goblin, a misfit elf, and a changeling spy unite in an uneasy alliance. But their mission to learn the truth of the strange disappearances must wait—for they owe a blood debt to the changeling queen.

In the Raveen Mountains, the cornerstones…

Book Review: Shards of honor

https://www.amazon.com/Shards-Honor-Lois-McMaster-Bujold/dp/0671655744

I technically listened to Shards of Honor in September, but I’ve also read it in the past. It stands out as a book I think many readers will appreciate currently, with a great female lead, so posting a review here as well as the usual sites…Enjoy!


An excellent mix of military action and intelligent romance. Main character Cordelia fulfills the strong woman trope that’s currently popular but is vastly more complex and rich than most female heroines. She’s at once more capable and more vulnerable than most women portrayed in modern fiction. She stands toe to toe with any of the military heros and, in my opinion comes out on top. She’s relatable and not without flaws. She’s surprised by love and both she and her man dance around it, not weaving coy games, but with a life-earned wariness but heart-earned longing. Psychologically compelling and politically interesting on many levels. Humor weaves throughout with sardonic wit. Highly recommended read.
