Cup Of Glitter - International Book Awards - Finalist (2011)


2011 International Book Award-Winning Finalist and
USA Best Books 2011 Award-Winning Finalist

Sherry enjoys writing stories for children that entertain, educate, motivate and inspire them to reach for their dreams and goals. She has a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and a Master's degree in Education.

She had always hoped for a relationship where she and her husband could work together, pool their talents, and make a difference for children.


God started Sherry and her husband, Robert, on that journey when they met in 2005. Married now for five years, their first book, Cup of Glitter, written by Sherry and illustrated by Robert, has been recognized as an Award-Winning Finalist in the 2011 International Book Awards, and a USA Best Books 2011 Award-Winning Finalist.

Challenged to pursue her dream of writing for children, Sherry wrote the first draft of
Cup of Glitter
in 2005. Not yet confident that the characters had come to life as she hoped, she revised the story a few times before sharing it with anyone. A while later, Robert brought his talents in digital painting to the page and created the visual adventure for Glitter and Dart. Once revised a few more times, the story finally looked and sounded the way the creative team had envisioned. The last step was to create the fairy song, set it to music and create the seek-and-find throughout the pages of the book.

Then came the overwhelming task of getting it published. While researching their options, Sherry and Robert decided to start their own publishing company. Gilded Magic Publishing was established in 2009.

Robert is currently writing and illustrating a new book, The Bell Ringer, due out for a 2011 Christmas release.

Sherry is currently searching for and meeting with other potential authors who may want to tell their stories through Gilded Magic. They hope you enjoy Glitter and Dart’s story and that you keep a watch out for the many other stories and products in the works in the years to come.
