Sherry Isaac

Sherry isaac

Raised by Nancy Drew and Miss Marple, Alice Munro Short Story Award winner and MAGGIE Finalist Sherry Isaac’s rich storytelling is laced with a pinch of mystery, spiced with a dash of the unexpected and served with a dollop of suspense. Resistant to any one genre, her novels and short stories weave the common thread of everyday life, love and forgiveness into tales that transcend all things, including the grave. Sherry believes in romance, identity and the depth of the human soul.
