As a child, Cheriť Summers, dreamed of being a writer. And it's in her dreams that Ms. Summers finds inspiration. At age eighteen, a dream she had about her favorite rock star, Billy Idol, turned into her first novel, A Melody for Adrian. But, Ms. Summers didn't get serious about publishing that novel until she turned fifty. Three years later, she has five published books to her name.
A Melody for Adrian begins her Love on Fire series which she describes as "drama filled, erotic romance about love, sex, friendship, and rock and roll". Thus far, there are five books in the series that chronicle the trials, tribulations, and romances of the fictional band, Lightning.
For her fifth book, Eternally Wild, Ms. Summers veered away from her series to take a stab at paranormal romance. However, the book is still grounded in music. The inspiration for Eternally Wild also came from a dream. One in which Ms. Summers met the ghost of Michael Hutchence. She was compelled to begin writing the book on the 20th anniversary of his death and is thrilled with the outcome, calling it her "steamiest" creation to date. At the completion of the book, Ms. Summers wasn't preparing to write a sequel, but then inspiration struck and Heaven Sent was born. Currently, she is working on book 3 in the series.
Writing is only one of Ms. Summers' creative passions. She is also an avid photographer, specializing in portrait photography of animals, nature, and people. Another creative outlet she revels in is belly dancing. She teaches the art of Middle Eastern dance through her local community education program. She also enjoys traveling to music concerts and pop culture conventions with her daughter, Kayla. Atlanta is a favorite destination, and Ms. Summers' dream is to move there when she retires from her day job.
