About my books and short storiesUnbound Boxes Limping Gods is the first in a series of speculative fiction novels, for which I'm seeking publication. I hope you enjoy the illustrated micro stories. Each character you see here features in my novels. Every short story will give you insight into the psychology of different characters. The micro stories are set at the beginning of their lives and are part of what shapes them as human beings. Constructive feedback is very welcome. Which characters do you like most? Which stories leave you wanting more? I'd love to know your opinions. Invite yourselves, invite anyone you think may like my experiments. I also hope you enjoy the drawings and paintings of my main characters. Maybe one day, once it's published, you'll read Unbound Boxes Limping Gods and get to know their world more intimately...
About this world…To those who simply clicked on the link (You may click on the title of this article to visit Chery's Blog) and took fifty seconds to turn your thoughts to this world and these characters, THANK YOU. I am very excited that you shared something so personal, something I thought no one would ever get to know about me. I've written five books in this series based on these characters and their world and am writing a sixth.
I began my first micro story with Alexand, because she is my oldest, most precious character, a raw part of myself, formed out of isolation and poor social skills. (Unlike Xena who was forged in the heat of battle) Alexand was born in a park in Farnham, England, seventeen years ago. I was bunking off a Theatre Studies class, because it gave me the shivers. I hated drama, couldn't really stomach all the Jazz hands and rivalry. I was solitary, didn't belong there, I belonged on my own in the park making up imaginary friends, but I'm glad.
FOR ALEXAND: MUSEAlexand is like a vampire, she charmed me into marrying her. My wedding dress a suit of fiction, a frumpy prototype for future stories. My mind is preserved inside her world. It ages strangely. She wants me to live forever and doesn't understand why I can't. In her world, anything is possible.
Thank you for sharing the one thing (apart from my son) that gives me a purpose. I hope to share many more stories with you in the future.

In the beginning
As you can see, her world has moved on in 17 years, from this first sketch and unpracticed ramblings. For some reason I could only draw / write on this lined paper. Thankfully technology and time have allowed me to present you with something I hope you'll be interested to read?
