Sherry began her author career when she penned her first book, Taste of Tombstone, in 1998. It was her passion for food and history that led her to create that first book. That same passion landed her a monthly magazine column in 2009 when she began writing her food column in True West entitled, Frontier Fare. It includes details of food and related stories in the Victorian West as well as a photo of each recipe. She also has another passion where she researches the genealogy of food and wine! It’s called, Winestry. She’s also a food stylist where she makes food look even more appetizing that it already is.
She served as President of Western Writers of America (2014-2016) and holds memberships in Women Writing the West, the James Beard Foundation, the Author’s Guild, National Women’s History Museum, and the Wild West History Association. Sherry is also a member of the National Genealogical Society and the Association of Professional Genealogists.
She has also appeared on the History Channel and in the new FoxNews series called Legends and Lies in 2015.
