Cheryl Gillespie has lived her entire life in Maine. She taught English in public schools for 40 years, mostly to eighth graders. She always enjoyed writing with her students. Memoir and biographical fiction are her favorite forms of writing, even having published a sweet piece of nonfiction about her Labrador and his girlfriend for Gray Wolf Publishing. The anthology Compassionate Journey has been an eye-opening experience for her. Marketing and handling the finances have been a real trip, but readings and discussions are fun. Her new fictional biography of her parents as young adults was published in 2019, titled Gracie and Albert.
