Doris Schneider: My writing and my life seem to have “grow’d like Topsy”. I paused in this writing to look that idiom up. It refers to a fictional character from Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe, and means something that grows in spurts without design or intention.
Sherri has been writing and
dreaming since she was a young child. After they raised six sons, her husband
asked her what she was waiting for! With the help of her friend, library
supervisor Robina Norman, Sherri attended a couple of Romantic Times
Conventions. After winning the Ann Peach Scholarship for new writers, she
joined Romance Writers of America, Heart of Carolina, and Pamlico Writers
Group and began pursuing a career as a writer. Sherri writes romantic
suspense with southern grit and charm, set on the coast of North Carolina.
Kay Wilson wrote simple poetry before her best friend pushed her, kicking and screaming, into a mystery writing class at the local community college. From there she was hooked, learning all she could about the craft. She is an actress and has played numerous roles in community theatre productions (Encore Theatre - Elizabeth City; College of the Albemarle Coast Players - Elizabeth City; and Pamlico Playhouse - Washington), and believes it’s helped her see characters and their stories better. Ms Wilson is a member of two writer's groups (North Carolina Writers' Read - Belhaven and Pamlico Writers Group - Washington) both encourage and challenge her to improve her skills. She writes and manages a blog for the Pamlico Writers Group. She's also written several short stories and two novels which are in different stages of completion. K D Wilson writes Women's Fiction (Domestic & Romantic Suspense) and as yet has not been published.
The Pamlico Writers Group is thrilled to announce the upcoming release of our 2016 anthology of short stories and poems written by our members with a section of award winning prose and poetry from our 2015 and 2016 competition winners.
