Avery Aames is perhaps more popular as the person who wrote the bestselling A Cheese Shop Mystery Series, than her pseudonym Daryl Wood Gerber. As Avery, she has managed to write some of the nationally bestselling books, and has a result gained popularity among readers and authors in equal measure. Until recently, women were rarely taken seriously as series writers, with the category being a preserve for seasoned male authors, whose books garnered global recognition almost immediately after publication. For Avery, determination and passion for the artistic pen drove her into writing some of the widely accredited masterpieces that are a delight among many readers across the world. As it stands, Avery Aames is not one of the kind to simply read and cook, she somehow tends to look for adventure in her writing.

Avery Aames is originally from the San Francisco area, where she spent much of the early years of her childhood living in the strict neighborhoods with her family. As a young girl, Avery loved to dress up and perform, and Halloween wouldn’t come around fast enough for her. Just like any young girl he age, she loved dancing in the rain at Lake Tahoe. She was able to create a song at the age of three, perhaps to accentuate her dancing in the rain. Little is known of her family, but she is said to have been an avid reader a fact that became apparent as early as nine years. Around this period, one particular instance is clear-she got measles and was able to read the entire Nancy Drew series, and soon afterwards she wrote her first Nancy Drew mystery. Later, at the age of eleven she wrote her first play based on ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’; all of which are considered to inspire her towards acting and fictional writing.

Prior to debuting her career as a novelist, Avery Aames spent most of her time writing and creating screenplays, which are perceived by many as the driving force behind her mysterious yet sweet taste of suspense in her books. While growing up, Avery envisioned her future life as a mother and a teacher and that was that. However, all that changed when she moved to Los Angeles where she became a singer, dancer, and actress. Unknown to many, Avery is the brains behind the format in the popular TV sitcom Out of this World-which is essentially a fun tidbit depicting mystery buffs. Apart from screenplays, she also tried he hand in acting, with popular appearances as the lead actress and co-star on Murder, She Wrote among other TV shows.Averyl is a Stanford University, with a passion for cooking, reading, golfing, swimming, and gardening. She also loves adventure is known for having jumped out of a perfectly good airplane alongside her husband of over twenty-five years and their grown son who has flown the coop.

Avery published her first book “The Long Quiche Goodbye” in July 2010, which is the first installment in the tasty A Cheese Shop Mystery Series. In her first publication, she introduces to her readers Charlotte Bessette a proprietor at the Fromagerie Bessette-the Cheese Shop. But when the shop’s landlord is found with an olive-wood handle knife sticking out of his chest, and with Bessette grandmother being held as the main suspect…how can Bessette not get involved? The small town of Providence settles down after the murder, the Cheese shop thrives but Avery tickles the bloom in “Lost and Fondue,” which is the second in A Cheese Shop Mystery Series.

As if that is not enough for the fair town of Providence, Avery further airs the not-so-clean linen of the town in the wake of setting up tent for its Winter Wonderland faire in “Clobbered by Camembert,” which is third in A Cheese Shop Mystery Series. In this series, readers are introduced to Kaitlyn Clydesdale, an old friend to Charlotte Bessette’s mother, who has returned to providence with plans of starting a new honeybee farm. In the fourth and fifth series in the A Cheese Shop Mystery-“To Brie or not Brie” and “Days of Wine and Roquefort” respectively, Avery takes her readers through the mysteries in the Cheese Shop with an expected conclusion in the upcoming book “As Gouda as Dead” which is sixth in A Cheese Shop Mystery series.

Throughout her career, she has tended to alternate between fiction and literally prose, with a series of novels to her name, which tend towards lighting social values in the guise of speculative fiction. The “Days of Wine and Roquefort” is perhaps Avery’s best known novel and an emblem of the fiction in her novels. The “Days of Wine and Roquefort” is the winner of the Agatha Award, with many people considering it as being the tasty installment in the nationally bestselling a Cheese Shop Mystery series.

Avery Aames popularity as an author has grown tremendously since her first publication, with equal improvements in her writing career. Although many critics perceived the first installment as a complete failure, each year they have been thrilled by juicy installment in the series, with the Agatha Award being the last nail to drive the message home. As a young girl growing up in San Francisco, Avery was treated to unique experience of a popular cheese shop in the neighborhood, and her pen never fails her when it meets paper each time a new book is born in the A Cheese Shop Mystery series. Although all her novels are available in paperback, all titles in the series are also in available in video.

All said, Avery Aames stands out as a modern-day author with a passion for her career. She stands out as one of the few writers that have given a new face to how people perceive fictional writing. It is not often that a person picks a novel and is glued to cheese stories for an entire five novels, and still yearn for more cheese as they close the last page in the series. As such, Avery Aames takes credit as one of the few women authors with a golden touch for words in the elusive yet lovable fiction novels.
