Cheryl Burman hails from Australia – an Adelaide girl originally before going off to university. She moved to the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire, UK via Switzerland and Surrey, in 2008. She’s glad she did! The Forest has inspired writers, including Tolkien, for generations. It’s still doing so.
Her first novel is Guardians of the Forest, a fantasy trilogy. Theoretically for the nine to early teens market, the books have found a wide fan base, from 9-year-olds to 80-year-olds and all ages in between.
She now writes historical fictionfor grown ups. Keepers, her historical women’s fiction (with more than a touch of romance) was released in April 2021.
Cheryl is married with two grown children, and is slave to a border collie who has published his own book, Sammy’s Walks– highly rated by locals and visitors to the Forest alike, and their dogs.
