About

Twenty-six letters of the alphabet. Lots of things may have changed since I began to write (basically as early as I could hold a pen), but I’m still using those same twenty-six letters as tools to share stories and ideas.

I’m Cheryl, a thirty-something writer, born in the US, and living in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

My background is in editing and publishing, but after a short foray into book publishing, I’ve moved into communications and writing in the not-for-profit sector. I love it.

I am a columnist for Christian Today Australia, and was the winner of the 2017 Basil Sellers Young Writer Award.

This blog is about topics I wish more people were talking about. Here, you’ll find an inventory of my articles that span topics including Christian issues, popular culture, creativity (particularly writing), and body image. The aim of this blog is to talk about ideas that I find stimulating, challenging, or just need to be explored.

I write to spark more ideas, not to have the last word – so I’d love to hear your thoughts, too. Hope you enjoy checking out my work.
