Sheryle Bauer is a remodel junkie, animal lover, and collector of pianos. That's right, we said pianos--and she doesn't mean those tiny dust-collecting tchotchkes but full-sized fortissimo-resounding, eighty-eight key instruments. She also loves spending time with her two dogs and three cats. "Oh," she adds. "and my husband, Doug!" She has worked on various writing projects from magazines and newspapers to online publications. She also has a number of novels in the works, so don't expect to see her around town anytime soon!
