ABOUT CHERRI RYAN

  • Cherri Ryan is a children’s author, regular reviewer for Kids’ Book Review, and speaker in schools, clubs and events. Cherri also works in medical education and enjoys helping organisations that help others. Cherri’s writing is inspired by the children she cared for when working as a family doctor in Australia for over fifteen years. Her stories feature characters with courage, who find unique ways to solve challenges. In 2018, Cherri’s debut picture book, Spirit (illustrated by Christina Booth) was published by Black Dog Books (an imprint of Walker Books Australia). In 2016, one of Cherri’s other stories, The Day Before Christmas, was animated and projected onto Brisbane City Hall as the Christmas Lights Spectacular. Cherri is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, Queensland Writers’ Centre, Write Links and Book Links.  Cherri lives in Queensland, Australia, with her family, one cat, two guinea pigs and many visiting birds and possums. Cherri believes in hope, joy, perseverance and the power of stories.
