Author: Sherrie Miranda

I am an author who writes in order to create more peace and understanding in the world. I am a teacher who has taught students from many countries of the world. I am also a life and writing coach. I love to travel and first traveled to other countries before finally deciding to see some of the U.S., places that foreigners I met have been to, but that I hadn't. I am happily married to a teacher who identifies himself first, as a musician. We hope to someday travel together to places where I read my novel(s) and speak to people about loving life while Angelo plays his piano and entertains the audience too. I also hope to assist seniors and troubled teens to write their life stories in order to heal. Life has much to offer so I always encourage young people to hang in there and know that things WILL get better.
