Something About Me and My Book:
Everyone said the ten month courtship and marriage between Willie green, the strait-laced pastor of the traditional Harvest Baptist church, and Vanessa Morton, the dynamo preacher pastor of the contemporary Mt. Pleasant Baptist church, was too soon. Neither pastor realized that after the nuptials, all hell would break loose as they planned to combine their respective churches. The price of having too much too soon leads them both to deal in their own way with letting go of the way things used to be.

Sherryle Jackson is an educator by profession, and writer by passion. A self taught quilter, Sherryle has started a black memorabilla collection called Church Lady Ways to preserve the graceful elegance of her nine aunts and their churching traditions. Sherryle is a member of Delta Sigma theta Sorority Inc. and The Balck Writer's guild of PG County, Maryland.

I am not sane, I'm a writer.

Sometimes my husband gives me the strangest looks. The kind where his eyes dart fertively about landing on me occasionaly. He doesn't want to ofend me, but he thinks I'm crazy. It's the same kind of look I get when I am mulling over a storyline to myself out in public or I blurt out a twist in my plot line like an "aha moment" in the grocery store. My husband has caught me scribbling on my tabletop notpad in the early morning hours or have held entire conversations with me before he realizes I haven't been paying attention. I can be with him, but not with him (knowwhatI'msayin'?) There are worlds fully populated going on inside my head. There are charcters attached to my insides like tapeworms dependent on me for basic nutrients. There are governments that need to be overthrown, conspiracies that need uncovering and countries that need to be evaded and I am the commander-and-chief. Excuse me if I appear a little scatterbrain. No, I'm not just starring at the acreen although my work has been covered over at least 30 minutes by the screensaver. Yes, I need those little scraps of paper, napkins and bathroom tissue I've written on . Yes I take your threat of, don't bring another book into this house, as a personal challenge.

When we first met I told him I was a writer. I am almost certain now that he didn't know what that entails. I made a deal with him then. I'll allow you (and our susbsequent offspring ) in, BUT I have this task, this mission that I must accomplish. It's never ending. It's all consuming. It's unexplainable. Don't ask, you won't understand the process. BUT if I want to share a piece of my offering, lap it up like a faithful dashhound, sit at my feet until I dismiss you with a pat on the head. My area is off limits. It is a mess, and yes, it ate up your magazine. You laid it on my desk at your own risk.

I told my husband I was a writer. That makes me the worst crackpot. I have more personalities then Cybil. In some of my works I've been a pastor,grocerry store mangaer, personnal trainer, pyschatrist, police chief and a teenaged boy.

I told my husband I was a writer. I didn't say I was sane

An Authors Ways and Means

Okay you’ve got me. I know what this looks like. It would appear from my work area that I am a slob. What you cannot see is that I’m just a few feet from the kitchen table. What is not pictured is the refrigerator, sink, and range just out of the camera’s periphery. This is in fact my home office or where as I put it, “the magic happens.” My office also happens to be located in my home’s breakfast nook, architecturally speaking. It is part of a… Continue

By Sherryle Kiser Jackson

Friendiligence is one of those internet buzzwords up for consideration to be added to the upcoming edition of the Merriman Webster Dictionary. Google it. It loosely means the time and energy used to establish and maintain friends and friend requests mainly on social networking sites like Facebook and MySpace. As an author trying to navigate the vastness of the World Wide Web in order to market and promote my book, friendiligence most surely is… Continue

Thrifted, Not Re-Gifted?

Thrifted, Not Re-gifted

A funny thing happen to me at the thrift store. As I was scanning the bookshelves for the lastest literary cast-offs my daughter cried out to me after unearthing a slightly worn copy of my debut novel, Soon and Very Soon-with a signature, no less. I haven't done many of these. This gave me pause. I was insulted. I felt the way I did when I found my favorite cassette tape of all time, New Editions's NE Heartbreak album in the bargin bin at Sam Goody record store.… Continue

The Hezekiah Effect for Writers

By Sherryle Kiser Jackson, author of Soon and Very Soon

Someone estimated that everybody gets about 15 minutes of fame. It would suggest that the recognition we receive as writers for our works will ultimately subside to make way for someone else’s time. When does our 15 minutes begin? Is it when you have crystallized a theme or idea in your mind and proudly announce to friends and loved ones, “I am writing a book?” Is it the minute you learn to juggle the creative and business side… Continue

Your humor is great . I can see you as a comedian LOL Writers are very different . We have a sense of things other people dont see. I often think of my character MO'keisha in my book. I see her all the time in town and I just laugh........
