Cheryl Norman grew up in Louisville, Kentucky, where she wrote her first mystery at the age of 13. She earned a BA in English at Georgia State University in Atlanta. After a career in the telecommunications industry, she returned to fiction writing and won the 2003 EPPIE award for her contemporary romance, Last Resort. Her debut with Medallion Press, Restore My Heart, led to a mention in Publisher's Weekly as one of ten new romance authors to watch. Running Scared, a romantic suspense set in Jacksonville, Florida, and Washington D.C., received a Perfect 10 from Romance Reviews Today. Reviewer Harriet Klausner calls her writing "Mindful of Linda Howard." Rebuild My World, the sequel to Reclaim My Life, was her first novel published by Turquoise Morning Press.
Cheryl has combined her passion for writing and healthful cooking by publishing three cookbooks (two were finalists in the EPPIEs in the self-help category). She also helps writers with grammar via her Grammar Cop blog, newsletter articles, and workshops.
