Rowena Cherry, writing as Rowena Beaumont Cherry, lifelong lurker, fact magpie, corporate jet setter, lives (for the time being) in Michigan in a Detroit suburb with her much- travelled husband and five year old daughter.
Rowena has won or placed in over forty RWA contests. Her futuristic romance FORCED MATE was a finalist in the 2003 New Voice in Romance contest. Her free short story, MATING NET (prequel) will be published by NBI as of May 2004.
Rowena has lived the dream.
A youth on the tiny island of Guernsey, with its stone faery rings, prehistoric strong-woman statues, dolmens, and Tudor Martello towers, and underground German gun emplacements, and legends of faery men and local women. The dreaming spires of England's ancient Cambridge university; mystical Wiltshire and Dorset; dining off gold plate with an Arabian princess on a sheik's yacht; Rowena taught a Duke's son something (Chaucer) rubbing shoulders backstage with rockstars, models, pace car at Indy 500--where Chuck Jaeger told her about gas in zero gravity, and Fabio said "Hello"; corporate jets; Pebble Beach; staying in massive, multi-bathroom suites at the world's best resorts... all fabulous inspiration for romance novel locations and other-world building.
