Special Guest and Best Selling Author, Sherri Lewis
Sherri Lewis authored her first book at the age of six. Her family considered her pencil and crayon on brightly colored construction paper creation a masterpiece. She continued to enjoy writing short stories and poems throughout her young adult life.
Her writing was put on hold while she attended Howard University as an undergraduate, then medical school at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. The writing bug bit again a few years ago and pencil, crayon, and construction paper were replaced by laptop and printer.
Sherri considers writing both a ministry and therapy. She’s able to take a problem she’s struggling with, give it to a character in a story and create a wonderfully happy ending. She hopes her stories will minister to others as much as they do to her. Her writing passion is to create characters with real life situations, faults, and behaviors and show the power of God to cause all things to work together for good.
By day, she “ministers” as the staff physician at a Georgia Department of Corrections’ women’s prison. By night, Sherri can be found in any of Atlanta ’s eclectic coffee shops, typing furiously on her laptop – headphones blaring jazz or contemporary gospel – talking to herself, the computer, and the characters interacting in her head.
Sherri is co-founder of the Atlanta Black Christian Fiction Writers’ Critique Group with Essence Best-Selling author Tia McCollors. She is also a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers and its Southeast Atlanta chapter, Visions In Print. She lives in Atlanta , Georgia .
Sherri’s life passion is to express the reality of the Kingdom of God through the arts including music, dance, film and television, and literature; and through sound biblical teaching. Her ministry thrusts include the message of the Kingdom, intimacy with God, intercessory prayer, understanding prophetic ministry, ministering emotional healing, and birthing individuals into their destiny.
