A multiple Best of the Net and Pushcart Prize nominee, her work was selected by Dorianne Laux for a recent Sundress Best of the Net Anthology, and she won the Lopside Press competition for Prisoner's Dilemma, poetry inspired by game theory. She cooks in the Indian idiom and plays a mean classical piano, and collaborates frequently with her sister, Janet Snell, an expressionist painter..

Cheryl Snell creates scenes and memories like poetry, filling the senses and drawing the reader in. Stories flow through the eyes of her characters, telling truths they've failed to see, and blossoming each into singular shapes of honesty. What matters? People matter, a combination of how they see themselves and their relationships, a vivid mixture of different layers of existence.
Hurt birds, popsicles, harmonica's song--like elements of a well-written tune the refrains repeat through these stories making this truly a collection to savor, not just a random grouping of random tales. If you want short and simple, these stories aren't for you. But if you want those deep lingering tones, a harmonica's birdsong haunting the basement's gloom, this collection's for you.
