Cheryl Matthynssens

Cheryl Matthynssens was born in Upland, California, has held a teaching degree and was a licensed addictions counselor and sales manager. This has allowed her to interview hundreds of personalities over her career.

She loves that everyone is unique and this appreciation and interest has informed and inspired her writing.

Matthynssens enjoys the universe of fantasy for the way it connects to the mind's creativity and imagination as a colorful escape to distant lands of mystical beasts and fantastic quests where the hero really does save the day. As she's matured artistically, Matthynssens has found writing to be a comforting counterbalance to a world where beloved characters don't always get back up after they fall down.

Matthynssens currently lives in Wenatchee, Washington, and has four beautiful children and four wonderful grandchildren.
