Cheryl Barton lives in Maryland and in her spare time she loves to read espionage, crime and romance novels, cook, watch Sci-fi movies, craft, spend time with family and friends and enjoy Maryland steamed crabs. In 2018, Cheryl celebrated 30 years as a government employee and loves writing romance and inspirational novels.


Cheryl is the author of multiple romance and inspirational novels and is proud of 4 book compilation projects with several other incredible women called, “One Sister Away: Encouraging Words from One Sister to Another” – a series of books meant to encourage, empower and inspire other women. People often ask Cheryl which book is her favorite of all of those she’s written. While she finds it hard to select one favorite, Cheryl still looks to her first novel, Bachelor Not for Sale, if she had to pick a favorite because it was her first novel and the one that inspired her to continue writing.


In 2014 & 2016, at the 5th and 7th years of the African American Author's Expo, Cheryl was recognized for her work as an accomplished published author, receiving a certificate and award for both years.


Cheryl was a 2018 Finalist of the Literary Trailblazer of the Year award, given by the Indie Author Legacy Awards’ yearly event.
