About Me

CroninHi. My name is Sherrie Cronin and I am the author of a collection of six speculative fiction novels known as 46. Ascending. Each one of these books is a stand alone story of a person who develops extraordinary powers when forced to deal with danger in their own lives. The books are loosely related because the protagonists of the stories are all family members.

This is the blog for the novel One of One. Please check out my blogs for the novels Shape of Secrets (Fire Dancing for Fun and Profit), Twists of Time (Treasure Hunting for a Good Time), Layers of Light (Leaving the Nest to Touch the Sky) and Flickers of Fortune (Touching the Sky to Save the World). Book six in the 46. Ascending collection is called One of Two, but it does not yet have its own blog.

Please visit my Facebook page Number 46. Ascending. Follow me on Twitter @cinnabar01. Email me at lola.zeitman (at) gmail.com. I’d love to hear from you!

If you have read and enjoyed One of One, please consider leaving a review at Amazon.com, or at Goodreads.com.

Here’s my bio:

Sherrie Roth grew up in Western Kansas thinking there was no place in the universe more fascinating than outer space. After her mother vetoed astronaut as a career ambition, she went on to study journalism and physics in hopes of becoming a science writer.

She published her first science fiction short story and then waited a lot of tables while she looked for inspiration for the next tale. When it finally came, it declared to her it had to be a whole book, nothing less. One night, while digesting this disturbing piece of news, she drank way too many shots of ouzo with her boyfriend. She woke up thirty-one years later demanding to know what was going on.

The boyfriend, who she had apparently long since married, asked her to calm down. He explained that, in a fit of practicality, she had gone back to school and gotten a degree in geophysics and had spent the last 28 years interpreting seismic data in the oil industry. The good news, according to Mr. Cronin, was she had found it at least mildly entertaining and ridiculously well-paying. The bad news was the two of them had still managed to spend almost all of the money.

Apparently she was now Mrs. Cronin, and the further good news was they had produced three wonderful children whom they loved dearly, even though to be honest that is where a lot of the money had gone. Even better news was that Mr. Cronin turned out to be a warm-hearted, encouraging sort who was happy to see her awake and ready to write. “It’s about time,” were his exact words.

Sherrie Cronin discovered that over the ensuing decades Sally Ride had already managed to become the first woman in space and had done a fine job of it. No one, however, had written the book that had been in Sherrie’s head for decades. The only problem was, the book informed her sternly it had now grown into a six book collection. Sherrie decided she better start writing it before it got any longer. She’s been wide awake ever since, and writing away.

    Fantastic piece! Love that your partner said: ‘About time’, in reference to your writing! Looking at all you have here suggests it was a good move…
