More Than Words: Volume 4 (2008) Hardcover  Paperback  Kindle

Born on July 23, 1944 and author of over 100 novels involving romance and mystery, Sherryl Woods grew up in Arlington, Virginia, United States. She has written novels since 1982. She also resided in Florida, Ohio, and California over the years. Currently, since she will never forget the place she grew up, she always makes time to visit Colonial Beach, Victoria, although she also lives in Key Biscayne, Florida.

Sherryl Woods graduated a degree of Journalism of Ohio State University. She worked more than 10 years as a journalist, and most of the years, she was a television critic for newspapers in Florida and Ohio. She also spent several years on coordinating a motivational program for 8,000 workers at the University of Miami-Jackson Memorial Medical Center.

Most of Sherryl Woods’ novels are credited to her friends whom she knows while living in four states: Ohio, California, Florida, and Virginia. Most of her novels are also based on the memories she went through while living in the states. She claimed that she could not live without her friends, since they are dear to her and reasons for her achievements.

Her first book RESTORING LOVE was published in 1982 by Dell Candlelight Ecstasy. It was written under Suzanne Sherrill, a pseudonym of her real name. Her second book SAND CASTLES written by another pseudonym named Alexandra Kirk was published in 1983 by Bantam.

Later on, Woods decided to use her name when she was writing her Second Chance at Love series with seven (7) books at Berkley Publishing. In 1986, she became a full-time writer and started her long career on her Silhouette Books with the first novel NOT AT EIGHT, DARLING, set in the world of showbiz and television that she covered for years.

Sherryl Woods wrote thirteen (13) mysteries – four (4) in the Molly DeWitt Series and nine (9) in the Amanda Roberts series. She is also an expert of writing romance novels, which she is very renowned for. She wrote over seventy (70) romances for Special Edition and Silhouette Desire.

Sherryl loves to garden in her home when she is not writing, although she is not a maven on lawn mowing. She also loves baseball, theater, tennis, and ballet, although she lacks skills in dancing.


The first time she sat down to write a book after graduated from Ohio State University, she had a hard time using her imagination and put it into words. She went through a writer’s block – a lack of pages of facts and quotes to use for her first book. However, she eventually used her imagination and made it real through words with the help of her friend.

She loves her characters because her heroes do exactly what she wants them to do so. And this is the best part of being an author, not a director, she implies. She has been making up all sorts of things, such as entire communities, storylines, and characters.

She likes to write stories that are based on reality. She wants her storylines and characters to resonate with her readers, because nothing can please her more than to hear from her readers that they have been through that similar scenario. This makes her happy. Though she plays words with her imagination, she ensures that more than half of the plot is relatable to the readers.


Belonging to the book series entitled Charleston Trilogy, THE BACKUP PLAN was published in 2005. It is the first book of the Charleston Trilogy. The story focuses on romance and childhood sweetheart.

Dinah Davis, a foreign correspondent, resigned from her job and decided to return home to find her childhood love, Bobby Beaufort, the man whom she left behind. They had backup plan before when they were younger but because of her dreams to pursue her profession, she left him behind with their plans. Now, she returned home and planned to see Bobby; Cordell, brother of Bobby, objects to her plans because he knew it will not bring her good. Cordell has realistic ideas that he is the perfect man for Dinah and not his brother.

Eventually, Dinah fall for Cordell and the scars she had from her first love have healed. Will she ever go back to her profession and leave him behind like she did before with her childhood sweetheart? Or, will she stay with Cordell forever?


STEALING HOME was published in 2007, the book 1 of Sherryl Woods’ SWEET MAGNOLIAS series. The plot focuses on the main character Maggie Townsend who lives in a town called Serenity. While she lives in Serenity, nothing is peaceful or calm about her life after her divorce with her husband who has a pregnant girlfriend.

Maggie is a stay-at-home mom with three (3) children: a six-year-old daughter whose heart is torn apart due to her parents’ marriage failure, a sixteen-year-old son who is out of control, and a fourteen-year-old who used to be bubbly and suddenly became silent.

Maggie started to face challenges after she falls for her son’s baseball coach, Cal Maddox. For her, it is like the world is against their love. But in order to get serenity back once more, she has to please and convince everyone that Cal may be the only man in South Carolina who can help her find true love and serenity again.


Sherryl Woods is considered the New York’s time best-selling author. One of her series will be adapted for television. Hallmark Channel snapped up Woods’ Chesapeake Shores series for a movie and probably prime-time series to launch in 2015.

Woods was part of the 1987-1988 Career Achievement Award Winners for the New Contemporary Romantic Series of Romantic Times Magazine. Due to her persistent proficient works, she was awarded once more and part of the Contemporary Romantic Suspense in 1993-1994 Career Achievement Awards held by Romantic Times.

There were no reports of her television and movie adaptation of her works way back, except the Chesapeake Shores that will be launched in 2015.
