Sherry Briscoe grew up watching Alfred Hitchcock and the Twilight Zone. Is it any wonder her stories are dark and mysterious with a hint of the supernatural?
A native Idahoan, she has lived in Europe, and both the East and West Coasts of the U.S., but has found her way back home.
Her travels began with a half-courageous, and half-terrifying decision to join the U.S. Army, with the guarantee that she would be stationed in Europe. And so it began. She bought a journal to take with her when she boarded the plane for Germany, and was excited about the new adventures that would fill the once-blank pages. Two years later, she returned home with a suitcase full of journals, a new understanding of the world, and a new insight of herself. But the journey had only begun.
Through the years Briscoe has written for newspapers and magazines, but now focuses her time on her books.
In 1999 Sherry founded the Idaho Screenwriter’s Association, which she facilitated until 2013, when the group was merged with the Idaho Media Professionals. Sherry found that learning to be a good screenwriter, made her an even better novelist.
Sherry has been invited to speak at conferences and writers groups, and enjoys the opportunity to help other writers find their way and hone their skills. She is on the Board of Directors of the Idaho Writers Guild.
