Sheryl Leonard is a Canadian nurse who had always wanted to be a writer. That dream came true with the publication in 2005 of her memoir of her experience in a cult. Two fiction "sweet" romances followed, in 2010 and 2013. Her light touch makes her books a perfect read for a rainy afternoon. Leonard is an avid fan of jigsaw puzzles, likes knitting, and is a proud mother of three grown-up children and grandmother of five.
