Meet Cherie Colyer

Cherie Colyer and I are doing an author / blogger swap today

~ How FUN IS THAT! ~

She is featuring me on her blog and I am featuring her on mine


Cherie believes there's a little magic in everyone. She also believes in following her dreams and never giving up. Her books are proof of that.

Besides writing, Cherie enjoys spending time with family and friends, reading, the great outdoors, and she loves a challenge. While she has had many great experiences, what she finds most satisfying is seeing her children and stories grow into their own exciting and distinct entities.

Cherie lives in Illinois with her family.

I asked Cherie to give us 10 Fun Things to Know about her ~

*I’m one of those people who has to have her cup of coffee in the morning. I just can’t handle the day without it.

*I’m a sucker for a good kissing scene. I read them twice before moving on.

*I can’t stand it when people play with my hair. One of my sons used to LOVE to run his fingers through it when he was a baby. Because it calmed him down when he was upset, I let him. Funny what a parent will do to keep the little ones happy.

*I prefer flowers, just because, over gifts on holidays like Valentine’s Day.

*I’ve always had a fascination with witches and not-so-secretly wish I had powers.

*Favorite pastime, when I’m not reading or writing, is going for long walks at the arboretum or botanical gardens.

*I used to go rock climbing, and I didn’t even mind the spiders I’d come across. (Any other time, I hate them.)

*I played the viola in grade school.

*My favorite color is the blue of the ocean at noon, but I’ve been buying a lot of pink—keeps the boys in my house from taking my things. :)

*I love fast cars. If I won the lottery, I’d have a nice collection of sport cars starting with the Audi R8 and a ’68 Chevy Camaro.


Cherie is the author of 3 books so far...

Madison is familiar enough with change, and she hates everything about it. Change took her long-term boyfriend away from her. It caused one of her friends to suddenly hate her. It’s responsible for the death of a local along with a host of other mysterious happenings. But when Madison meets a hot new guy, she thinks her luck is about to improve.

Madison is instantly drawn to the handsome and intriguing Isaac Addington. She quickly realizes he’s a guy harboring a secret, but she’s willing to risk the unknown to be with him.

Her world really spins out of control, however, when her best friend becomes delusional, seeing things that aren’t there and desperately trying to escape their evil. When the doctors can’t find the answers, Madison seeks her own.

Nothing can prepare her for what she is about to discover.

Dangerous, intoxicating, and darkly romantic, Embrace is a thriller that will leave you spellbound.
Hold Tight
When you're new to magic, one spell can be the difference between getting what you want...and ruining the lives of everyone you love.

Sixteen-year-old Madison has just embraced her magical powers. The trick now is learning how to control them. She and her boyfriend -and fellow witch- can't even enjoy a simple kiss without getting shocked when their powers collide. Instead of mastering her new skills, though, Madison is stuck watching her kid brother and doing chores.

But being a witch does have its benefits. With a simple spell, Madison instantly conjures the help she needs around the house. Or so she thinks. Her idea of "help" invites trouble of its own as a pair of dangerous yet enticing beings enter her life. When a classmate disappears soon afterwards, Madison discovers she's the next victim of a threat she's powerless to resist...and there's nothing it won't kill to make her surrender.

Caught in the crossfire between two dashing but deadly creatures, Madison must figure out which one to trust and how to rid her world of the other-before one of them destroys her and everyone she cares about.

Challenging Destiny
Logan Ragsdale and his younger sister, Ariana, have been marked, chosen to be unwilling participants in a war between angels and demons.

Logan can sense something's not quite right. Like an unexpected chill on a summer's day, he can feel the unseen closing in. He's had these feelings before and, each time, someone close to him died. He's afraid this time it might just be Ariana.

Logan's fears are soon confirmed when he discovers their new friends aren't human, but rather representatives from Heaven and Hell sent to Earth to ensure he and Ariana accept their roles in an ancient prophecy. Demons want Logan to open the gates of Hell. Ariana has the power to stop them, but if she chooses to side with Heaven to spare the lives of thousands of innocent people, she'll damn her brother for eternity.

Together, they must derail the biblical event if they hope to save themselves and the future of mankind...but what price are they willing to pay to keep the other safe?
