About the Author

A Christian author based in Tampa, Florida, Cheryl Rogers is a former newspaper reporter who came to know the Lord as an adult through a serious illness. Her love of writing was evident as a child when she became fascinated with Nancy Drew Mystery stories. Because she wanted a "practical" career, she studied Journalism and sociology and graduated with a double degree. She then worked for 12 years in the newspaper business, leaving when she was expecting her and her husband's first child. Three years later Cheryl succumbed to a severe immune disorder, Environmental Illness. She realized God was her only hope and prayed he would heal her. But though she went to church regularly, she did not really know God. At first, Cheryl believed God wanted her to go the "medical route," and so she scoured the area and then the country for doctors with experience with her disease. She followed their programs and got better, then worse, better, and then much much worse. Finally one day when her life was at its lowest point, she surrendered her life and circumstances to God -- and he showed up. She received the Holy Spirit and began to view her circumstances in a more positive light. Each day her body got stronger and -- about five months later -- she received deliverance. Her life has never been the same since. Cheryl has dedicated herself to encouraging others to seek God and stay connected with his Word. She has written several Christian titles including a devotions book, "Fast Track to Victory, A Christian Guidebook," aimed at those eager to run the race set before them. This book distills the biblical truths we need to truly love and forgive others, set aside pride, deal with tragedy and death and lots more. Written for a non-denominational audience, Fast Track encourages readers to spend time regularly with God in his word and in prayer. "I longed for a book that would teach me the basic biblical principles I'd missed out on earlier in life," Cheryl says."When I didn't find one, I wrote it myself." Cheryl also has written "Just Like Jonah Wail Tales," a collection of exaggerated tales of woe aimed at preteen and teens. In each story a modern day character makes bad choices and lands in a whale of trouble, just like Jonah in the Bible. The book teaches that there's a price to pay when you disobey, but God is faithful to change your circumstances when you turn to him. For the 5-10 year old set, Cheryl has written a children's Bible study entitled "Making Choices: Life is Like Acorns." This book teaches things are not always what they appear to be. The story is about a baby squirrel who learns acorns are not always good to eat, even when they may look like it. Some are rotten and some are empty. Children learn God looks at the heart. Her book "What You Should KNOW About Self Publishing" is aimed at would-be authors and provides them the nuts and bolts necessary to develop their ideas into salable books. These practical tips are intended to save readers time and money! "What You Should Know Before You Hire a Book Designer" is a free ebook to help authors sidestep mistakes that will cost them time and money in the design phase of publishing a book. Cheryl also keeps busy taking nature photographs, designing Scripture-inscribed gifts with her nature images, and assisting authors with book covers, interior design and formatting, editing and proofreading and other aspects of self publishing. Her nature images are available for purchase at NaturePhotoDownloads.com Cheryl's online magazine, New Christian Books, is a free publication for readers and writers. It features kingdom-building book announcements and excerpts, author marketing tips, a practical biblical advice column, features and book reviews. At her website, SongsfromtheWord.com, Cheryl also shares traditionally inspired Scripture songs inspired by the Word of God. "I really can't take credit for them," she says.

I have not read this yet, but why the crap do people rate a book they don't even understand what it's about? A book designer is someone a 'writer' goes to to design their book. And some of you seriously need to learn to spell!!!
