Sherry’s passion of historical food, spirits, places, and people set her on a path of research and writing.


She writes about the American West’s pioneers—many who have been forgotten by time. She paints a vivid picture of their daily lives with their stories and recipes.


Her books include historic recipes for food and beverages, rules for old saloon games, and historic wineries you can still visit today. Even though she knows being able to read about it can be exciting, she believes experiencing it first-hand is even better!


That’s why she writes book about daily life on the frontier. There are many colorful characters who called the West home, including  Buffalo Bill, Jesse James, Geronimo, Annie Oakley, Lillie Langtry and the Earp brothers.
