She continues to bring diverse characters and story lines to the Christian fiction arena through Lily Bird Press. With regard to self-publishing, the author states emphatically, "Research shows that the self-publishing industry is growing at a rapid rate each year. And Iim in the club with those who are making life happen—not waiting on life to happen!" Sherrhonda loves reading, watching good movies, traveling, and of course, writing!!!
