Sheri Breault Kreitner grew up in Massachusetts on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean in the small town of Wareham. Her appreciation for writing began with reading, which was supported and encouraged by her parents who were avid readers themselves. Her passion for writing however was sparked while she was attending elementary school where she was first exposed to Edgar Allen Poe’s Tell Tale Heart during the sixth grade. Her first attempt at fictional writing was a simple school assignment for which she wrote Lori and the Cream Colored Horse, which was about a friendship between a girl and her Palomino horse. Mrs. Peel, her sixth grade teacher, recognized Sheri’s ability with storytelling and encouraged her to explore her aspiration to be an author. Once the inspiration to write was realized, Sheri continued to explore the world of words and began her journey of self-expression in writing poetry, plays, and prose. While most of her early works were lost, her passion with language was not and while earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theater, Sheri also minored in English attending numerous courses in creative writing.
