Sheryl Kaleo spent her childhood building sandcastles on the beaches of the Caribbean. Monsters from the mysterious depths of the ocean were always on hand to storm the ramparts or stop by for a l'il skylarking with space-conquering aliens.

These days, she spends her second childhood writing young adult science-fiction and supernatural romances, and her stories come peppered with a spicy marinade of multicultural folklores and myths.

She has a Computer Science and Liberal Arts Degree from Boston University and Graphic Design Certification from Massachusetts College of Art. She's finalled in some cool contests including the RWA's Golden Heart ® and won first place in the following:

Colorado RWA Heart of the Rockies for TIME WALKERS 2006
Fiction from the Heartland for PIPER'S KISS 2008
Heart of Denver RWA YA Molly for PIPER'S KISS 2009
Southern Magic Romance Writers Linda Howard Award of Excellence for DONOR 2011

When she's not writing, or reading, or reading about writing, or drawing, or geeking, she heads out on real-life adventures with her family in their very own zombie-apocalypse Jeep. She lives in the northeast, where it's too cold in the winter and almost perfect in the summer.
