Sherry Thomas

USA Today-bestselling author Sherry Thomas decided that her goal in life is to write every kind of book she enjoys reading. Thus far she has published romance, fantasy, mystery, and a wuxia-inspired duology. Her books regularly receive starred reviews and best-of-the-year honors from trade publications, including such outlets as the New York Times and National Public Radio. She is also a two-time winner of Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA® Award.

Sherry immigrated from China at age 13 and English is her second language.

June 2020: Sherry will start book 6 of the Lady Sherlock mysteries as soon as she can dig herself out of this BTS hole!

The Lady Sherlock books are typically released in fall.

Hurry to this page before September 9, 2019. After that, if you cannot come to a signing or a bookstore that has recently hosted a signing, probably your best bet is to send for a signed bookplate. See below.

Kerry Donovan at Berkley edits the Lady Sherlock books. Cheryl Klein of Lee & Low edited THE MAGNOLIA SWORD. Donna Bray of Balzer+Bray edited the Elemental Trilogy. Wendy McCurdy edited Sherry's five romances published with Berkley. Sherry's first four romances were edited by Caitlin Alexander, formerly of Bantam Books. Caitlin is now a freelance editor and you can find out about her services here.

MIDNIGHT SCANDALS is edited by Robin Harders. THE HEART IS A UNIVERSE is edited by May Peterson. THE LUCKIEST LADY IN LONDON, THE BRIDE OF LARKSPEAR, THE HIDDEN BLADE, and THE ONE IN MY HEART were edited by Tiffany Yates Martin of

Sherry must also offer her undying gratitude to her critique partner Janine Ballard, without whose valuable input, HIS AT NIGHT, TEMPTING THE BRIDE, MY BEAUTIFUL ENEMY, THE BURNING SKY, THE ONE IN MY HEART, and the Lady Sherlock books would not be the books that they are.

The brilliant Kristin Nelson of Nelson Literary Agency. If you are a writer, you should read her blog. Edited to add: The world of social media changes fast and Kristin isn’t blogging as frequently as she used to. But you can find her insights and updates on Facebook and Twitter.

This website is designed and coded by Frauke Spanuth of Croco Designs. Sherry does the upkeep herself. Mistakes and broken links should be brought to her attention.

And here are some interviews in which Sherry was asked real questions. In case you wonder, yes, she has been interviewed since 2012, but she has been too lazy to gather all the links here. :-)

Elsewhere Sherry

Sherry occasionally guest-blogs at fine and worthy romance blogs around theses internets. Here is a compendium of her guest posts.
