promo2017aAs a native Californian, R.L. Cherry spent most of his life in the Golden State. However, the five years he lived on the Isle of Man in the British Isles not only gave him many ideas for his writing, but also a less Americentric perspective. He now resides in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas, Gold Rush country.

He began writing fiction when he was in high school in the form of short stories. Most were of a futuristic/sci-fi theme. Although he never actively pursued having them published at the time, he has had several in ezines lately. Under his “Ron Cherry” byline, he has written a column on classic cars and hot rods for The Union newspaper in Grass Valley, CA, for a decade.

As a lover of the tales by Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, he has written mysteries with a female gumshoe with an attitude. As a history buff, he has written a Celtic saga of the late 6th, early 7th century. Read more about R.L.
